Christmas Trees


Happy Saturday!
We went and cut down our tree last night, so I will be spending the day decorating. This is WAY early for us, as we normally don't get our tree until 2 weeks before Christmas, but the weather has been treacherous so we are trying to get a head start.

These are just some simple cards that I made and sold as boxed sets for the fundraiser at my children's school last month. I ended up making 104 cards (not all this designs) and sold all but one box of 6! The school was happy, because of course they received the money, and being a very small private school, they need all the help they can get.




All supplies PTI, except black ink which is Ranger Archival, of course! (Won't use anything else!)

Thanks for stopping by today, have a good one!

Oh Dana these are absolutely beautiful and now I know what has kept you so busy. You have put so much detail into each card. I love the tree with the stamped snowflakes and it looks like along with the bling you added some liqud pearls? What did you stamp the white snowflakes with?

Congratulations to you for selling all your cards-er, almost all of them! Yeehaw! Love the distressing on the edges of the trees, so reminiscent of snow.

These are just wonderful, Dana! I think that dark avocado and scarlet jewel are one of my most favorite color combinations. You make things look so easy and fresh. Always beautiful!

These are amazing Dana! I love the layout and the stamping on the tree is perfect. These look like great cards for mailing. No bulky buttons or bows!

And a great big woot-woot to you for making and selling so many cards! You've been one busy lady. Im not surprised that your cards sold like hotcakes!

Stunning cards. Simple and gorgeous!

Gabby said...

Lovely card! The layout, the color/paper choices and the tree ... perfect combination. I have that tree die and I have decorated it various ways but couldn't quite find a design that "spoke" to me. Yours does; it's unusual, sparkly, and bright and I quite like it! Thanks for the inspiration! :)

Dana said...

These are terrific, Dana!!

IamDerby said...

Oh Dana, these are lovely with a capital L! I like everything about them, snowflakes on the tree are genius.

Your card is beautiful. Love the clean and crisp look to it with just a bit of Christmas bling. So glad your school was able to profit from your wonderful creations. Have a wonderful holiday!
