Christmas Tree Cut

Sorry it’s been a quiet week from me this week…  I have been rushed off my feet, catching up on household things and getting ahead on DT projects!  Anyway, here’s a card I tried out a few days ago..

I have seen lots of intricately cut trees and baubles and decided to try my hand at creating my own, now that I have almost got the hang on manipulating images in Silhouette Studio.  I combined several swirls and flourishes, creating one row of the tree at a time and then editing out some of the pointless cut points, before committing the image to cut.  Here’s what the final cut looked like:

I punched small circles of red glitter cardstock to add to the tree as baubles, and cut a trunk which I coloured with Pro-Markers.  I used 3D foam pads to pop it off the plain white background, then mounted it on a layer of card embossed with a swirly Cuttlebug folder, which is very similar to the swirls and flourishes in the tree.  I added a little red and white ribbon before mounting it all on a card blank.

I was pleased with the end result, didn’t think it was too bad for a first attempt at creating my own image to cut…and it’s another Christmas card for my ever-growing pile!

Thanks for reading x
