Do you recognize that orange polka dot paper on the tree? It's actually sorta funny. I got one 12x12 sheet of it at Michael's on sale for .20 and have now used it on 3 cards and still have some left. Now that's thrifty, huh? Actually, I just love polka dots and orange fits this time of year, so it just worked out that way. I cut the tree from Straight From the Nest. I hand cut the "hills".
The sentiment is from a stamp I got at Joanns in the dollar bin! It had some swirly things on it, but I wanted the simple wording so I cut those off.
I added the tree using foam tape, to give it some dimension. The button is from the Walmart dollar bin and I added some twine to it to make it fancy. =)
I must admit, I went out on a limb with this one. Since I tend to be a little obsessive compulsive, I have a hard time making things in colors that aren't natural. Obviously, hills aren't plaid (wouldn't it be cool if they were?) but when I got the idea for this card, I decided to try it. I really like it, but my first instinct is to find a green-only pattern because that's the color of grass. I know...I'm a little crazy. I am learning to relax and try new things, thus an orange polka dot tree on plaid hills!
One last thing - I got some crazy good deals on cricutmachine.com today, so be on the lookout for a giveaway in the coming weeks!
Have a fantastic day!
