Christmas Trees and Owls

 First up, my Unscripted sketches card.  I turned the sketch for my card.
 I used my Art Philosophy Close to My Heart Cricut cartridge.  This cartridge cuts several card shapes and for this one it cuts out the three trees in the front of the card.  I placed a white piece of cardstock behind those trees.
 To go along with the sketch, I pleated a piece of Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker patterned paper from the Gingerbread Lane collection.  I used my Martha Stewart scoreboard to makes my pleats. Across that I placed a sticker strip from the same paper collection. The little sentiment oval is also a sticker from the collection.
Next up, my Card Positioning Systems card for this week.
 The Stamps of Life is our sponsor. It is always so much fun to play along with their stamps.
The owl is a two step stamp.  The branch and leaves are from a different set by The Stamps of Life.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Lovely cards! I love the trees there, with them cut out, instead of putting them on the card, looks great!
And the owl is really cute and perfect patterned paper! Very nice!
Hugs, Wendy

Very nice! I love it when people create a different look with a familiar technique.. and twist that technique into something new. Just great! And creative.

What great cards, Linda! Love, love, love your CPS card this week! Such great colors and papers. Adore that sweet owl and the matching sentiment. Really love the negative die cutting on the trees on your first card, too. And that paper pleating is fabulous.
