I started with a River Rock card. I trimmed the decorative paper to 5.25x4.00 inches. The greeting was printed on a sheet of the same cardstock. Originally the speckling on the tree was stamped but to quickly speckle a lot of trees I created a pattern in Corel Draw to color print directly onto the 8.5x11 sheet before cutting it into triangles. The triangle tree is Always Artichoke cardstock cut to 3.75" tall and 2.75" wide. The greeting was printed onto River Rock cardstock as well. I decided to punch holes into the tree to copy the dots in the background paper. The Berrylicious Bazzil cardstock tree was cut slightly smaller than the green one. They were layered together then glued to the card. A small piece of brown cardstock forms the trunk of the tree. The star is a sequin which was attached with double sided tape.
This card is the same sketch in different colors. The card stock is ivory and the background paper is a plaid Designer Paper.
