Happy Trees



Hi everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful week! I wanted to share a couple of cute cards I made this week. I like to get a lot done while I am making cards, but I do admit to having a bit of paper crafting ADD! I can't stay with the same design for too long. I love for each card I create to be individualized. A good compromise for me is to use the same layout and stamps, but change up the patterned paper/colors and card orientation (vertical or horizontal).

As you can see, I made some cards using the new Unity November store kit, Believe in Fairytales. I cannot tell you how much I LOVE this set! Quite versatile. ;) I knew right away I wanted to paper-piece these trees! I used basically the same layout and the same embellishments (PTI buttons and linen thread), but changed the orientation (horizontal to vertical) and the patterned papers. For the pink card, I used Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses. Yep, it's a Christmas line. On a non-Christmas card! Hee hee! For the green and yellow card, I used the Crate Paper Lemongrass - Lime paper. Love how those earthy papers can feel so BRIGHT and happy!

Hope you enjoyed these cards! They were lots of fun to make! See you soon for a special DT announcement! And see you tomorrow for the Limelight Sketch and Product Challenge!! :)
