We still have a week left of our Sketch challenge at Christmas Card Throwdown.
This is my card and here is the sketch:
I spotted these folded trees months ago but have never tried it out until now. This is where I found the information on how to do it. When I came to print the pattern, I found we'd run out of ink - how often does that happen? So I drew a circle and traced the fold points from the computer screen. I'm sure it could be done with a protractor if i could find one.
You need double sided paper,. I didn't have the right sort of Christmassy paper so I've just used a red pattern which I hoped would look a bit festive.
Once I'd made the trees I made frames with snippets which involved a satisfying amount of cutting and sticking but I know would send Miss Di running for the hills. I used the same paper and my JustRite corner dies and thin strips.
Each tree is made from half a circle so I made another tree with the remaining half.
The I tried green which I didn't like so much as it is the wrong sort of green:
I'd like to try some mini trees but I have a long list of things I'd like to try so it might not be today.
There are already some outstanding entries to this challenge so do go and admire them and join in if you can.
I'm hopping over to Pixie's Snippets Playground where I am running in at the last minute again. You'd think with two weeks I could get in earlier.
