Christmas Tree from Scraps

Well, I'm at it again with another Xmas card.  This time I was inspired by the triangle challenge at Simon Says Stamp and the scraps challenge at Shelly's Images


Except for the white card base, all paper used was scraps.  I affixed a torn blue panel to a white card base and stamped the sentiment in blue.  I created a triangular tree with scraps/offcuts of patterned paper (I don't like to throw out anything!).  The tree trunk is brown cardstock scrap.  I embellished with Stickles (to simulate snow) and a red star.  Here are the supplies used:
  • Stamp:  Sentiment (Paper Pleasures)
  • Ink:  Brilliance Mediterranean Blue
  • Glitter Glue:  Stickles Icycle
  • White Card Base:  Domtar
  • Star:  Dollarama
