Christmas Cards in a Flash!

Ahhh, it's one of those freezing-and-crispy-but-sunny days that I love, it's so cold your nose could fall off but the outside world looks beautiful! I'm on holiday from work this week and I have a to-do list as long as a giant's arm, but I'm ready to tackle it!

This morning, realising that I have, as usual, left it rather late to make the 30 or so Christmas cards I require this year, I decided I'd better come up with something simple but effective that could be "whipped"up in a flash.

I started by gathering together lots of scraps of card in different shades of green and creating my own patterned paper using my new Dot,Dot,Dot stamp from Stampin'Up.

Then I drew a simple template of a tree in three sections and lots of intensive tracing and cutting followed.

I put them together with a couple more stamps and some little punched circles and - voila!

I should be able to make 30 of these before December!
