Halloween? it's aiight.
But Christmas? oh by golly, let's be jolly!
Today, we are showcasing "trim the tree" and its matching set of dies:
Lawn fawn images are already "cute" but apparently, not cute enough - I had to go and add a smiley face to the tree.
I started out by stamping the tree onto my card-stock, and then only masked the base of the tree before creating the background. I stamped out the "be merry" strip from peace, joy, love to cover my entire mat.
I colored in the tree's trunk and base and then paper-pieced the greenery. Even when paper-piecing, I like to add a little bit of depth by swiping a matching copic marker where the shadows would appear.
A smiley-face, some blushy cheeks, and his best gingerbread bud to hang out with. What more could a tree ask for?
A little shimmer on the star never hurt anybody.
I hope you liked today's card! Check out the lawn fawn blog for many non-smiley tree options (hee.)
