Hi everyone! As I promised you the other day here is a Christmas card I made for a recent clean & simple challenge on splitcoast stampers. The challenge was to find ways to use paper piecing. I haven't used this stamp set in a long time. I have to admit I even forgot I had this set.
My tree was paper pieced by stamping the image onto the certainly celery designer series paper and cutting it out and then I added a few brads. The tree trunk was also paper pieced using chocolate chip card stock.
I very rarely use the paper tearing technique, but I thought it looked nice on this card. Simply tear the paper in one direction. You will notice that when you are tearing your paper one side will have more white showing than the other. I usually use the half that has more of the white showing.
My tree image is popped up using dimensionals and my sentiment is from the Stampin' Up! Occasional Quotes stamp set.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
