That is a beautiful card! How did you make the branches? They look 3D! I would love to try making a card like that.

Commaholly, thanks for the tip! I am checking that site out now so I can get my pictures uploaded too!




I used the Martha Stewart medium branch punch, then used the agt adhesive all over a tree (triangle) cut from green card stock. Working from the bottom up and and sides in I began layering the branches over each other.

There is a youtube video showing the technique. I don't recall the lady's name but when I saw the demo I had to buy the punch right away. She also used the branches to make a wreath. It really is a 3D technique.

If you search youtube videos for "Christmas Tree Tutorial Part 1" you'll find the video to make this. I wasn't sure if I could post the video link

Oh! I didn't even realize that we had started a new week already! Sorry! My oldest is starting preschool this week... it's been a big week!

This week let's do a Christmas card using some sort of die cut AND some sort of stamp.... so, you need to use a die cut AND a stamp on your card. That should be simple enough for this week, yes?

Does anyone else want to come up with a challenge for next Sunday?

Thanks for the reminder link. Time has gotten away from me. I have been helping a family where dad in in the reserves and mom work nights so that has me working 7:30am to 11:30pm every day. I'm exhausted.

Holly pink is my favorite color. I never would have thought to do a pink card but if it is okay with you I would love to scrap lift this idea?

I feel really bad. I was all excited to do these challenges but then work, family and silly old life got in the way of my scrapbooking/cardmaking time so I did all 3 challenges so far today and I will post them now.

Please let me know how you would improve them because they are not the best by far. I had a lot of drama with them and will have to redo some so I can send them.

Oy, I almost forgot to post my card today! Sorry it's late guys! I've had it done for almost 3 days now and our internet has been off more than on because they are replacing lines in our neighborhood. Here it is though!

p.s. I LOVE picmonkey.com! Thanks so much for sharing the site!
