Trees Indoor or Out

Another 2 weeks sped by but don't ask me where.  It's time again for the girls in the christmas Card club to show our latest makes. The theme was set by Shaz who asked for Christmas Trees indoor or out. Quick rummage in my used  christmas card box turned up 3 reusable ones so here they are.

1st Card.
I didn't want to detract from this image so I trimmed to neaten  and just layered using white card and then navy blue for the card base. Sentiment is a silver sticker from my stash.


2nd Card.
I trimmed the card down quite a bit as I wanted to create a panel with it. The base card is made with black cardstock and the design paper is a freebie from Making Cards magazine Paper Craft Special  2017. I made the base from 8" wide card and scored at 3" to make the fold. The tree was adhered to a slightly larger piece of black card and then mounted on the 3" folded card to hang over the edge.


3rd Card.
Uses a freebie design paper from Making Cards Magazine Christmas Edition 2015 called ' Festive Family '. the base card is made from beige cardstock. I trimmed the card front to neaten and then adhered to a slightly larger piece of the beige cardstock. This was then attached to the design paper using 3D pads for dimension. The tree had a few random baubles hanging on it which I covered with gold gems to match the sparkle and also added one to the star at the top of the tree. 

Another 3 cards done and dusted and added to my Christmas card pile. I'm off to see what all the other girls in the club have come up with but not before I pop my card into the following challenge.

You've beautifully repurposed some wonderful elements to make these cards! I love the soft, shimmery trees on the first, and the unique fold of the 2nd is very pretty too. I like the look of that full golden tree on the last one with that great background to compliment it! You did a great job on all 3 here, congrats!
