A Trio of Trees

Hello there!! It's a crisp Fall morning here in Texas...we won't get out of the high 60s today.....I LOVE IT!!! Today I have for you...as you can probably guess...one of my favorite cards I've made lately for the United Way Campaign at work. Yep, it's red and it's polka dots....two of my favorite things!! I was surfing Etsy the other day and I came across THIS card and I thought to myself...she won't mind if I borrow her idea for charity...so I did!!! Of course mine is a bit different from hers because I didn't have the same papers she did....but I still like the way it turned out!
I used all Stampin Up! papers...except the "Merry Christmas" strip...it's The Paper Studio, then I cut out the snowflakes from the Cricut Joys of the Season cartridge, added a few silver dots and my cards were done....this was a very simple card to make....the hardest part was cutting the trees. I was going to stamp a sentiment in the upper left corner....but I just stayed with using the "Merry Christmas" strip of paper for that...oh and of course the inside is stamped with "Merry Christmas" as well.....so I think the greeting is covered! LOL!! I still have more to show you, so check back tomorrow for more Christmas inspiration! THANKS for coming by to see me today....have a wonderful Thursday....I'm gonna enjoy the cooler weather today...YAY!!! HUGS!!!

Pin It!
