Christmas Trees Galore!

Q & A: On yesterday's cards, I used some green canvas across the front of my cards. It does not wrap around the card. I neatly snip the edges off at the sides of the card and then use a little liquid glue to seal the edges so they won't fray.

Update on the family: My mom is doing wonderful, although she backed her pickup into my dad's tractor which had a fork loader on the front of it. She now has this nice hole through the tail gate! Josey has chicken pox and Jordan was up all night throwing up! Niiiiiiiice!

Have you seen the little pink pencil Christmas trees this year? I have noticed them everywhere and think they are SO dang cute! I wish I had a room in my house to totally decorate in pink Christmas items.....but I don't so I'll stick to making some cards! All of these images are from Rubber Soul. They have tons of cute Christmas trees and Christmas themed stamp images.

This card uses a pink (yes it's pink but doesn't show up well in the photo)Auturo card and envelope available at Ellen's store. They make card making so easy! I found some Christmas patterned paper scraps from last year and added some big pink buttons and glitter and I was done! This little stick tree reminds me so much of those cute pink trees. Here's a close up of the buttons and glitter! Pine will be so proud that I threaded those buttons! Oh and check out the envelope, I used a Copic multiliner in pink to add some sketchy lines.
Here's another one that has a green theme. More of those big buttons from Foofala and hand drawn lines on the envy.
This one's made from some paper scraps I had left over and more cute Rubber Soul images.

This is a fun one. The card and the envelope represent going on the hunt for the perfect Christmas tree. The card shows the Christmas tree farm and the envy shows the perfect tree all loaded up and ready to take home. The paper strip on the top of the card is from Cosmo Cricket, love those pine cones! Stamp images from Rubber Soul.
Here's a close up of the envy. I love making little ensembles out of stamps. The tree and car are one image, the star and sentiment are two more separate images and the line for the road is hand drawn with a Copic multi liner.
