I love shaped cards. Most of the time we make bog standard cards for speed. When preparing for an event I make so many bog standard cards, it was quite nice to do something a little different.
We have a new embossing folder - woodgrain, and I thought that would be great for the trunk of a tree - hence this card was born! Glimmer paper punched with a variety of border punches acted as tinsel to dress the tree! There's a wonderful pack of DSP called Festival of Prints (page 20), 48 sheets in the pack measuring 11.4 x 16.5 cm, just right for cards.
Here's the inside. I had to extend the card to balance it at the bottom, hence the green strips to hide the join!
