Tiny Trees


When I have small leftover pieces of green cardstock, I often punch them with a SU! mini tree punch and keep them in a tiny box. For this card, I glued a bunch of those trees onto a piece of white cardstock, then die-cut it with a Lil Inker stitched rectangle. I die-cut another large tree from the SU! Peaceful Pines framelit set and stamped the sentiment, then dotted with red liquid pearls. The final touch was to place a punched red star on the top. I used the Lil Inker stitched rectangle dies on all layers.

I'm sharing this over at the August Rudolph Days where you have until the end of the month to make your Christmas card and enter it into the challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day!

It must have taken ages to stick the little trees on the card and they make a great background. I love that shade of green. I do similar with my small pieces and punch out flowers, small leaves and butterflies. Barbxx

I missed this post when it was published, but I've come to find it so I could publicly say how really extraordinary it is in real life! Honestly, I can't believe you painstakingly glued on each of the dozens of sweet little trees to this card, Carol! I feel very special to have received this card which you made with lots of care and love! Thank you, my friend!! Happy Holiday Hugs, Darnell
