Exploring Cricut Daily Project: O Christmas Tree!

For my project this week I decided to try my luck with a design I had seen on another card by Jen Rubio. She created a Christmas tree out of 4 hearts. It looked complicated so I wasn't sure it would turn out, but here it is and I'm pretty pleased overall. Still a few kinks to work out before it's sendable.

I started with a base of 5.5 x 4.25, then layered topiary cardstock and the plaid from the Believe line (both CTMH). I then cut 3 hearts from the Art Philosophy cartridge (now my all time fav) at 2"and 1 heart at 1". I stamped each with a stamp from the set "Mad About You" (CTMH) with topiary ink (I think it makes the perfect Christmas green). I cut a small brown (chocolate - CTMH) piece for the trunk, added some sparkles, a little puffy snow on the edges of the tree and almost finished.

To finish it off and give it an outdoorsy feel I cut 1 circle at 2.25" and cut it in half and 1 circle at 1.5" and cut it in half also and then layered to make snowdrifts. These circles are also from the Art Philosophy cartridge.

What I thought was going to be a complicated card turn out to be not so hard after all.
Happy Crafting All!!!
