A Christmas Tree
Good morning dear friends! I know it has been ages since you've heard from me on a Sunday, but I had a few extra moments this week to create a card for this week's Cupcake Inspirations Challenge. I'm not sure that my card really goes with the inspiration image, but I definitely had fun making it. :)
We have an awesome sponsor this week, The Twinery, who shared this lovely twine with the Design Team. I wasn't really sure what to make for this challenge, but the Peapod and Maraschino (cute names, right?!) colors were dying for my attention, so I decided to create this cute tree. I started with a strip of Crumb Cake card stock, which I folded in half and then tied strips of twine on it. I trimmed the twine to the desired length, then set it aside as I assembled the rest of the card. I embossed a piece of Crumb Cake card stock with the woodgrain embossing plate and then layered on some Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White card stock. I stamped the sentiment from Sassy Salutations and tied on some Maraschino twine. Then I added my little tree with some glue dots. Love it!
Don't forget to play along at Cupcake Inspirations this week. I can't wait to see what you create! :)
