cardboard tree

Here is a standard size card I created using pattern paper scraps. I combined several ideas and this is what I got. It is simple and quick to make but I love it.
The tree trunk is made of corrugated cardboard with the top layer ripped off. Then I inked it a bit to show the pattern. Some of the leave are ripped and some are cut. Brads are used to look like berries or apples.
Supply list:

  • ink- tea dye distress ink, choc. chip, dark and light green pigment ink, white pigment ink
  • paper- chocolate chip, cardboard, assorted patterns
  • stamps- a little hello (SU)
  • other- ruby red brads
