Paper Piecing Christmas Trees.....

I checked out the ABC Christmas Challenge Blog ~~ P is for paper piecing and I thought, hmm I can do that, I found the perfect stamp from the Artful Stamper that I picked up at an Estate Sale. It makes a perfect image for paper piecing with the exception it's a lot of fussy cutting.  If I hurry I can also put it in for the Jingle Belles Rock We three kings to use multiples of three, thus three paper pieced trees and it closes in 2 hours. I haven't made a shaped card for eons, I can't remember the last one I made but here it is.


I used my two fisker's star punches for the stars and added the rhinestones to the circles on the trees and the ones in the background.


finished the inside with a couple of layers and a sentiment.

I am adding this to:

ABC Christmas Challenge   P is for Paper Piecing

Jingle Belles Rock   We Three Kings

Thanks for visiting today and I have one more Christmas card for my collection.

Very nice paper piecing, Barb! For some reason I rarely use this technique. I'm not sure why because I love the look of it. Great shaped card too. Something else I rarely do - I always end up grabbing a square or A2. Thanks for the inspiration!
