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.
