Cmas Card Challenge - September - Non Traditional Colors

I chose Turquoise, Green Galore and Bright Pink for my non traditional colors for my September challenge and nice textured white cards. I could not decide on one design so I made several. I don't remember the company which makes the rubber stamp greeting.

Top Left: The tree is a QuicKutz die so I cut each layer in a different color. The trunk was cut in black. I glued the snowflakes cut by the die in the sky. I drew by a hand a snowbank with a thin black marker.

Bottom Left: The tree is created by gluing narrow strips of pink and green card stock on a piece of turquoise card. I then drew the sweeping tree shape on the back of the white piece and cut it out with scissors. The trunk was cut from black card stock. The snowflakes were hand drawn with a thin black marker. I added a small yellow star at the top. The snowbank was cut from the leftover from the tree and laid in the opposite direction.

Right: Again a QuicKutz die which creates a tall tree which needed a taller card than an A2. The 6 pieces cut into the 3 colors and alternating the colors. Cut the stem in black. Added a yellow star at the top. The greeting stamped and I drew a border with a thin black marker.

I made 4 cards
Total so far 76.
