Jingle Belles - Shaping Up for the New Year

Okay, this may look like a rectangular card but it is not.  The card is a triangle that I did some tangling on with a Christmas tree that I water colored and then also tangled.  I'm not 100% sold on the background that I did, but the tree came out okay.  

I was cleaning up my work space after completing all those baby shower invites and had this scrap piece of watercolor paper ready to put in the scrap box when I remembered that I hadn't been able to get to the JB challenge yet.  I took the cheap set of watercolors out and quickly painted some rainbow stripes onto it.  When it dried I drew the tree shape and cut it out.  I measured out and created a template for the card base in this triangular shape making it big enough to show a decent frame after the tree would be glued.  The longest part of this whole project was creating the background for the tree.  Once I got this all together I liked it a lot more.  

We're expecting snow to begin sometime late tonight and I already have a delayed opening called so I will have a bit of time in the morning to visit all the other shapely creations.  Won't you join me by clicking here to take a look..  


  1. 8 inches of the white stuff for us last night ... should be fun trudging and driving through it this morning ... your rainbow tree is fantastic, and I love how you framed it in a triangle ... so glad you *shaped-up* with us at Jingle Belles.

  2. The rainbow tree is totally delightful. Personally I like the background.

  3. ooooh! what a beautiful tangled tree design! now you've really got me thinking about what sort of cards i could be making from scratch with shapes and doodles. you might've just started A THING, missus! (not that mine will be as lovely as this!) beautiful job! thanks for getting in shape with us at JINGLE BELLES! ♥
