Freshly Made Sketches 252!

Wednesday, August 31, 2016

I hope you are not getting tired of seeing me create a Christmas card each week for the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  I know I don't make one every week but I seem to be on a roll because this is two weeks in a row I have made one!  Our hostess this week is Karren and when I saw that cluster of circles on her sketch I immediately thought of triangles (the crafty mind works in mysterious ways), which made me think of triangular Christmas tree dies.  And thus my card was born.

I am thrilled to pieces with how this card came out.  Firstly, because I finally used some glitter tape that I bought ages ago and secondly, because I had a vague idea in my head on how I wanted this card to turn out and it actually happened!  I am loving these new triangular-tree dies that I recently got and they were actually the impetus behind my Christmas theme this week.

This is an "anything goes" week at Christmas Card Challenges so I'll be linking this up over there as well.

My teamies at Freshly Made Sketches have got some gorgeous cards to show you this week so be sure to check them out.  I hope to see you in the gallery!

Well I can't explain how your mind works, but I love what your create! Those trees are really fun and I love your glittery strip at the bottom of the card.

You are certainly making those triangle dies look fabulous in every card you make with them. This is such a cool Christmas card - lovin' that sentiment stamp!

Love your trio of trees - each one different, yet they add so much to your card. Your choice of sentiment is fabulous too - super cool font that matches the "feel" from the trees!
