Starry Simple Trees...


Welcome to the Create with Connie & Mary Holiday Collection blog hop! Each Saturday the team will be sharing a Christmas/Winter themed project with you. You should have made your way here from Claire Broadwater's fabulous blog (if you have just stumbled upon this hop though, you can click the pic above to take you back, or the link at the bottom of this post to take you to the start of the hop).

This card is one I made at team training in about 5 minutes (quickest card EVER) but I love how it turned out! ...

I punched a piece of Kraft cardstock with the Confetti Stars punch and folded it into a card base and glued a piece of Cherry Cobbler card inside, behind the punched out stars. The ribbon is the gorgeous Cherry Cobbler linen ribbon from the Autumn/Winter catalogue. The focal panel is simply a Chalk Talk die-cut layered with a couple of stamped and punched trees with a little sentiment from Endless Wishes.

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Festival of Trees, Endless Trees
Ink: Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz, Cherry Cobbler
Paper: Kraft, Whisper White
Accessories:Cherry Cobbler linen ribbon
Tools: Tree punch, Chalk Talk framelits, Confetti Stars punch

I'm at the end of the hop so if you want to go back to the start to the fabulous Mary Brown, click on the link below.... I hope you've been inspired today!

Thanks for stopping by!
