From the beginning, I knew I would create a Christmas tree for this layout, and I knew I wanted to use my xmas card as the photo. Initially, I planned to use washi tape, but I didn't like my Christmas washi with my Christmas card. The colors weren't right.
So I went into my Christmas paper drawer and found one of my favorite collections from October Afternoon, Make it Merry. The colors were perfect! I used the 8x8 pad to cut lots of strips and then I created the tree with them. I am really happy with the way this layout turned out.
