Tiny Houndstooth Christmas Trees

I love seeing possibilities - beyond the obvious - in stamp sets.  Take Whimsical Banners by Inspired By Stamping, for example.


It's a set with cute little flags and banners, and one day, an aha moment:  little trees!  A strip of brown cardstock became tree trunks.


Red Liquid Pearls were all the decoration these little guys needed.


Love the different sentiment from Christmas Greetings by IBS.  It's not one you usually see on holiday cards.


Thanks for dropping in today!  :-)

Oh, Colleen, this is just adorable! I love a sweet and whimsical card like this. I have a couple similar on my work table right now, so don't be surprised -- we're on the same wavelength. I've made so many cards since the last couple of days, I've surprised myself!
