Mini Punched Christmas Trees


It's the 25th of the month, and that means it's time for the October Rudolph Day challenge to make 2 Christmas cards. I found inspiration for this card on Pinterest, and decided to try making one, and one ended up being two. These cards both use all SU! products and I'm pleased with the way they turned out. I'm so glad I bought those mini punches because they make some of the cutest cards! The sentiments were embossed with gold to match the golden star. The cardstock colors are cherry cobbler and gumball green.

These will be heading over to the new Snippets Playground 148 challenge as well.

Have yourself a wonderful weekend and I hope you're having some nice autumn weather like we are here in PA. Our temps are heading for the 70's in a few days! Yippee!

You must have lots of patience to punch out and stick on those little trees and ornaments!

GREAT results though.

Thanks for joining in with RUDOLPH DAY.

Hugs, Sarn xxx

These are very clever and I love them. I expect thy were a bit fiddly to do. I´d never get them spaced so evenly, but the two shapes work together so well. Kate x

So those pieces are all just punched out? And then lined up PERFECTLY!??!!! How do you do it. I'm very impressed. They made great cards though, but I know I wouldn't have the patience for them. Happy Rudolph Day!
