O Christmas trees

I wanted to share a couple of cards that I made using some Studio Calico cut files on my Silhouette Portrait. I also made them for this week's MIM at Papertrey Ink: Detail Glitter Technique.

For my first card, I cut my tree out of white cardstock and adhered it to my card, slipping some October Afternoon & Studio Calico patterned paper behind it. I used PTI cardstock (kraft, ocean tides) and stamps (stylish sentiments: holiday), buttons and twine. For the glitter, I added some SU! dazzling details to my buttons.


My next card is very similar, but with PTI new leaf cardstock and a different cut file. This time, for the glitter technique, I added some smooch to the blue patterned papers on the tree to add a little shimmer & shine.


Thanks for looking!

Leigh, these are so fantastic! Love how you mix the pattern papers. You always have a good eye for that. Shall I play favorites? I want to pick the first one, but I think I'm going with the more graphic last one.

Very fun, unique cards! I especially love the shape of the die cut on the first one, paired with the ocean tides color combo; sophisticated but still very festive. :D

Love that you can use so many details, color & patterns and still have a CAS card - that takes design skill!
