Crisscross Christmas Tree
Splitcoaststampers had their Color Combination Challenge, CC454 yesterday which required the Stampin'Up! colors Night of Navy, Baja Breeze, and Daffodil Delight. I had all the colors except Daffodil Delight so I used some scrap paper I had on hand for the yellow.
I saw this design on Pinterest: http://kentuckykindergartenkorner.blogspot.com/2012/12/eeek-loving-this-new-christmas-craft.html?m=1 Well, I know it was for kindergartners but I have seen plenty of this type tree made that wasn't for kindergartners. LOL I saw one yesterday on Splitcoaststampers made with Washi tape. I should have used Washi as I am sure it would have been easier (I think) than cutting all these strips of cardstock.
I didn't have a star punch with the size I needed so I punched a snowflake for the top of the tree. Then, I added my sentiment on a tree branch...couldn't find anywhere else for it to go.
I'm entering the Oozak blog challenge-#26-Holidays and anything goes-This is my third and final entry as their limit is three.
