BBTB2 - Use a Tree

 Welcome to Glenda's Cards

Today begins another fun and inspirational challenge at BBTB2! Our talented designer Jayne asked us to create a project using a tree from any Cricut cartridge. My first thought was to add to my Christmas cards!
Card is 5" x 7" cut from white Colorbok cardstock. The Martha Stewart Holidays paper is a leftover piece from another project.
Cricut cartridge is Trim the Tree! I bought this cartridge last year and decided I should try one of the images! These are pretty, yet intricate images. Using the larger card size, I cut the tree image at 5.50". Choosing the paper for the tree background posed a problem. Would you believe I cut a green, gold, and white image! I decided to use the white image.
Other supplies include Recollections red gemstones used to decorate the tree. Star button at the top of the tree was in my stash. I added a bow made with DMC Memory Thread.
Creative Charms- Happy Christmas.

Visit BBTB2 to see the beautiful and inspiring projects by the design team. For more information, please visit the individual blogs and leave a little love!
Now it is your turn to play along with us! Remember the tree must be a Cricut cut and please mention in your blog post which cartridge you used. One person will be chosen to receive the Project of the Week badge!
