Skinny Trees

I was determined to use some of these Dovecraft Christmas papers left over from last year (not one of my best buys - I just haven't found them very inspiring) on at least one card.  I found a sketch on Friday Sketchers (sketch #83) and this is the result.  While I think it is OK it's not, in my opinion, the really special card I wanted it to be.

OK, So It's Not Got To Be Red & Green!

Ok, so I did try and experiment with some non traditional colours.  But they just don't feel 'Christmassy' to me.  I used this card to enter the Dare U To Digistamp Challenge #28.

It's Got To Be Red & Green!

Now this isn't usually my style at all but I just love the Pink Petticoat Skinny Tall Christmas Tree digistamps.  So I slaved away at forty cards in red & green. Yum.  Had to send out for red gitter glue supplies and I also ran out of ribbon.  I decided to try and make some from a digikit.  I printed loads of these red check 'ribbons' onto some 120 gsm coated paper.  It turned out brilliantly.  The heavy density of the paper made them so easy to work with, much better than actual ribbon.  I entered this card in the Shirley's Two Girls Challenge.
