This card was made to honor that tradition!
While we don't have an old car to strap our tree the excitement and love behind it is the same. This entire card was made in a single layer - how? - lots and lots of masking. I had so much fun making it, I hope you stop on over to the IMAGINE Crafts site to check it out - Oh Tannenbaum. You'll find a complete list of stamps, supplies, directions and step by step photos.
Do you decorate a tree each year?
Real or Fake?
When do you put your tree up?
This year we thought we were going to have a real one but we are starting a new venture with our business so we've been so busy buying machines, learning the new process, and trying to keep up with everything we just haven't had time to go and get one. I think I'll be putting up our little fake tree this coming weekend just so we have something up.
One year at mom's we put up and decorated 8-10 trees - there were large ones, small ones and every size in between. All of them were decorated with different themes. It was so much fun but LOTS of work. I think she had like 5 in her living room alone! WHAT FUN! Sometimes they hang their tree upside down - If they did this year I'll be sure to take pics and share. They've been doing it for years - long before the upside down tree kits were sold in stores. Everyone thought they were nuts at the time but they were trendsetters - LOL!!
