Two-Fer Trees

Day 23 at Beccy's Place Beccy's Place Month long holiday challenge is the letter T. 
Inspired by the cards that Beccy made also day 17's off the page card I made this Two-Fer card with a Tree (2 t's.... go me)

In all the years I have made cards I swore that I would not make 2 cards exactly the same so I used the image to make 2 cards with different colouring.

The tree is a really big one that was on the front of an old Christmas card. It is foiled and has loads of glitter on it so would have been a real waste to throw that away.

I fussy cut the tree and split it into 2 pieces lengthways. The patterned background paper is actually wrapping paper. Paperchase is a store I love to visit and they have some amazing wrapping papers. One sheet of paper is the same size as 8 sheets of A4 paper and a great way of increasing your paper stash for a reasonable price. Obviously not suitable for scrapbooking but perfectly okay to use for cardmaking.

I have added a star to each which is a foam base and a glittery cardstock sticker on the top.

The sentiment is a digital freebie I have had from Birds Cards. I can't find on the blog but there is still loads of freebie digitals and SVG files on there.

I have to admit before taking part in these challenges I would never have considered using one image and splitting into 2 cards. It is opening my eyes to a whole new way of looking at things and I have got loads of Christmas cards made.

Card Details :-

Size - DL (4'' x 8.24")
Digital Stamp - Merry Christmas to You from Birds Cards

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical Order): -


  1. This image was too pretty to throw away. And your wrapping paper background is perfect!

  2. I think you chose the perfect image for this technique Mandy, the tree branches out beautifully at the bottom and fills the card front nicely. I love that you've chosen different colours for the background paper, it always amazes me how a simple change can make such a big difference to the appearance and feel of a project. Good on you for trying something new... and nailing it!

  3. Great idea, works very well to make two gorgeous cards. Emmax
