Color Theory Trees

There are so many wonderfully creative ideas out there on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook and other places.  I often mark ideas that I love and use them later either as a starting point for something or sometimes they are quite perfect and I stick very close to the original idea I found.  Often I’m not exactly sure who created the idea and for all I know they could have copied it from somewhere else.  So today’s card is an idea I found online – I believe it came from someone over in Europe as the stamped words on the card were not in English.  So it was likely from someone in Germany.   I thought it was a clever idea to use some of our all occasion designer paper for a Christmas card idea.


This is the Color Theory Paper Stack and I used these cards in a couple of my classes.  The color options included Dapper Denim, Old Olive and Crushed Curry.  The Designer Paper is paired with the Santa’s Sleigh Thinlits – the tree and the star die are from that set.  But you could do this same idea with just a tree die that perhaps wasn’t even Christmas.

The words are from the coordinating Santa’s Sleigh stamp set.  Both of these were from last years Holiday catalog and carried over into our Annual catalog.  Cut a strip of the paper and then cut out the two trees and a hand full of stars.  Adhere everything to a Whisper White card base and its done.


While you are in my online store be sure to check out the Year End Sale we have going on.  Some products are retiring from the Holiday catalog so get them while you can, others are on sale to clean out some inventory and make room for new stuff coming in January!

The new Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration catalogs will be coming out soon.  The ones I mailed out will be heading your way later next week.  If you aren’t sure if you are on my mailing list send me a note and I’ll check.  If I need to I’ll get you one in the mail once I have some here to send back out.

Thanks for visiting with me At Monika’s Place.
