|EK Success Parisian and Martha Stewart Loops Punches Garland|
Burlap reminds me of trees. As a teenager, I worked for a nursery that sold trees with their roots wrapped in burlap. The natural beauty of this rustic fabric seemed perfect for a Christmas tree background. It is layered on top of a piece of Cranberry cardstock which is on a Colonial White card base. The base was stamped with Cranberry ink using one of the images from the Universal Backgrounds set.
|Seam binding dyed with Tim Holtz Distress Stain|
The trees are decorated with strips of edge punched cardstock and embossed star punches. The strips on the left tree were run through a corrugator and then embellished with baker's twine. The strips on the tree on the right were stamped with an image from the Holiday Cheer set.
