5 for 5 Christmas - Day 5


Welcome to Day 5 (the last) of our 5 for 5 Christmas Blog Event. Today our theme is "Tree". We are all sharing a project where we use a tree in our project. Each day our 5 Designers will post a Christmas Inspired Project based on a theme.
Here is my card featuring 2 trees.

The main part of this card is (of course!) the trees.  They are Sizzix Tim Holtz Trees Dies.  I die-cut them each twice from watercolor paper.  The bottom ones, I intentionally left the interiors parts in, while fully cutting the top ones.  I then smooshed on some distress ink (Evergreen Bough and Pine Needles) and misted them with water.  I added a bit of Gathered Twigs to the trunks of the top trees and then glued them together.  The background is Stormy Sky distress ink and also some Heidi Swapp White Color Shine.  The sentiment is from the Unity Stamp Company September KOTM.
Here's the list of the other 4 girls participating.
I hope you've enjoyed our little Christmas inspiration hop.
