Trees Made With Martha Stewart and EK Success Paper Edger Punches

CAS Card - Martha Stewart Doily Lace Edge Punch
Lately, I've been making a lot of Christmas cards. A few of them have trees on them created from strips that were punched with various paper punches.  I'm sharing a few of the trees here.  Some additional cards that use other punched trees were posted earlier on other days and are listed/linked at the bottom.

Trees are easy shapes to cover with the strips.  However, I could see using other simple shapes for other occasions.   Also, the strips could be made from a variety of papers and punches to add a more random or vintage look.

The three trees leaning on their punches haven't been used on projects yet.  I wanted to show them with the punch used to create them in case someone has the punch, but was unsure of it's name.
These trees can work easily on scrapbook pages or cards.  Even though they have a 3-dimensional element to them, they flatten with no loss of the design.

An added bonus of having leaning trees is that it is easier to see the Tim Holtz Tidings Tissue Tape on each of them!

Some of the trees are topped with embossed stars, some with buttons and some are left bare.
