UDI52 CAS Paper Pieced Christmas Card

Cherry Cobbler, So Saffron, Peach Parfait, and Wild Wasabi… those are the colors for today’s Utah Divas International Color Challenge, yikes!! 

Still on a Clean and Simple (CAS) and Christmas Card streak… so, we have a paper pieced Christmas Tree!UDI52, color_challenges, utah_divas, new_product, big_shot, die_cut, crop-a-dile, lattice, snow_burst, embossing, textured_impressions, rhinestone_jewles, Sharon_field, createdbyu_blogspotTwo more card stock colors were added to today’s Color Challenge, Basic Gray and Very Vanilla.

Two new products from the Holiday Mini Catalog were also used:  Snow Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, and Mica Flakes.UDI52, color_challenges, utah_divas, new_product, big_shot, die_cut, crop-a-dile, lattice, snow_burst, embossing, textured_impressions, rhinestone_jewles, Sharon_field, createdbyu_blogspotThe focal image “tree” was created using a piece of Wild Wasabi Card Stock, and a piece of Peach Parfait Card Stock.   A Lattice Die Cut from my scrap folder in Cherry Cobbler seemed to frame the tree well, don’t you think?
