CHRISTMAS CRAFTS ALL YEAR ROUND -- CHRISTMAS TREE, AUGUST 2019

Hello crafty friends!  Sorry this post is a day late, but I am here to share with you the card I made for the current CCAYR challenge, Christmas Trees:


I really like these Christmas sheet music pages; I have several of them saved.  They come in handy when you want a simple card with lots of impact!  I wanted to use a different tree than the one that was pictured, so I edited the image in my Silhouette program, and replaced that tree with this one from my library.  It is simply called Christmas Tree, and is from Stinkin Cute Paper Piecings.  I just think it's adorable!  I didn't want this to be a completely flat card, so I printed the tree out several times, fussy cut the individual layers, and layered them on top of the tree printed on the image panel.  I used liquid glue to adhere the top part of each layer, and clear foam adhesive to bump up the bottom part of the layers.  The panel was then glued to a dark red cardstock that matches the red ornaments on the tree, and the song title.
