Christmas Tree

I purchased this die at the end of last year in a sale I believe and I didn't realize until using it this year that it doesn't cut the tree all the way out that it cuts it into the paper, so now I had to rethink how to use it all together and this is what I came up with.  Lot's of glitter paper going on here.  I made two of each color which I was able to get all done for my Nieces and Nephews and their families, and had one left over for a friend :)

Spellbinders - A2 mating basics A and Holiday sentiments dies
Anna Griffin -- Christmas Scrapbook paper pad
Paper Studio -- Glittered cardstock

We had some time last Saturday to just enjoy this time of year by going down to the Christmas Market downtown in our town and it was a very nice mild evening with hardly any wind (finally) and enjoy walking through the Christmas stalls they have from other countries selling their goodies.  I bought a glass hummingbird, I am not sure what country it was from and my hubby bought a Christmas tree from Ukraine that opens up to reveal first a Santa, then a penguin and then a very tiny Christmas tree, we have always seen the dolls that do that but not a tree.

I hope you are able to have some relaxing fun time too.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and visit during this busy time of year.

You did a nice job with this die! I often misunderstand what dies actually do and I usually just use the simple shapes. This one looks especially nice to make multiples like you showed!

Your Christmas market sounds lovely! I love those Russian nesting dolls.

Absolutely Gorgeous, Connie! Love the way you used that die!
(If you wanted the trees cut out, you could always trim around them with a paper cutter.)

Pretty cards Connie! These kind of dies are challenging I think! You did good coming up with so many and love the glitter paper with it!

Connie, what a gorgeous die! I love how putting a different color behind it changes it up. Gorgeous!
