Oh Christmas tree....

 This morning I decided to make another non sentiment card and to use my old die in a different way to resemble a tree like I have been doing quite a lot lately. In a way we need to utilise what we already have in our stash

I used linen card for this project

This die has become very popular and the last time I used it at it's fullest was with butterflies.  That was ages ago. This time I partially cut the die. 

I used scrapes of my shaving foam technique for the background and used an embossing tool to shape it to look rounded.  I then used another piece of the background to stabilise the tree flat against the card

Thank you for visiting and hope you pop in again
