Well this is whats on my desk today, instead of showing you my normal mess I thought I would show you a project that's on my desk instead (that doesn't mean there's no mess coz there is !!!) Anyway I made this card to fit the challenges below.
I used a die that I designed myself a couple of years ago, I cut out the trees with the die on the Big shot machine, first I cut them in chocolate card and then in BasicGrey paper from the figgy collection. Then I cut off the tree trunks from the designer paper trees and discarded little stumps.
The tall triangles I was left with I distressed the edges of with Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink and then glued them to the chocolate coloured card trees as you can see on my desk. I used 3 of the trees to make this card and the other 3 are for another project.
Other things I used to make this card;
MS deep edge punch
Reindeer tree decoration (from Tesco's ...Thanks for the tip Claire)
BG Button and twine
K&co Ancestry.com Gems
Prima Christmas flowers
Doodlebug Designs Glitter brads
K&co tartan paper
Pearl head pins from Tabby crafts
Whiff of Joy Flourish stamp (not that clear but its stamped in brown near the flowers)
