Blue Christmas.....

Fast and glittery....this card was fun and just really easy-peasy to make.  I happened to have been sent 3 triangle shaped dies a few years ago from Spellbinders.  They were a thank you for an order and they were not in any sort of packaging or anything....and I have never used them.  I mean really, unless you're Telly from Sesame Street whatever are you going to use triangles for?  Except for the day that you look at the triangles and think....aha!!!  CHRISTMAS TREES!  So, with a bit of scrap patterned paper, stickles and an embossing folder here is my Blue Christmas!



For the tree trunks I used some scrap kraft paper....I crimped it then lightly distressed it with brown ink. Thank you for stopping by!  If you are like me it is a very busy time of year for you!  I hope you get everything done today that you need to get done!

Be well,
Sheila

Yes, it's crazy busy Sheila! At this rate anyone not on the African continent will only be getting their XMas card in 2013! I adore your Christmas trees Sheila! It's funny how long it can take us sometime to see something differently!

Hi Sheila, Your card is wonderful. I'm a bit like you in I can wonder what I can do with certain things & then get an aha moment or in my case a "duh, why didn't I think of that sooner!" moment ;) You could make pennants or banners from those triangles too

Wow, a break-out style for you, Sheila. Love it - and how it is outside the box, literally. The textures are all great, and those little gifts are the perfect embellishment. Too cute.
