CAS Patterned Pines

DSCF5437-001
Happy Monday, peeps! My garden overfloweth, and I am bound and determined to not let it get away from me like it did last year, so my card today is super-duper CAS!!!  It is for the Less Is More challenge #76, which is one layer, three elements, as well as the Jingle Belles challenge of using red OR green, but not both.  I guess in doing pine trees, I should have used green, but I already had my Real Red stamp pad on my table, so I lazily went with that!

This is a little 4 1/4” square card; I rounded the corners with my 1 3/8” circle punch and used the piercing tool to make the “hills”.  I masked and stamped each one of the trees, then added my sentiment from Petite Pairs.  A little glitter sticker added to the top of the trees, and you can’t get any simpler or easier than this!

Now, on to the eggplant, peppers and tomatoes!  Enjoy your day---here’s a few shots of Cassidy with Grampy helping her be a good builder!

A wonderful card... and the red pine trees are more than "just fine"... I'm not even sure green would look much better. Red goes extremely well with that beige.

Thanks so much

This is a great CAS card. I love the trees in red and the piercing looks good too. I hope you were able to get the garden work done that you wanted.
Tumbling towers and fun with Grampy - sounds like a perfect day for Cassidy:)

Terrific out of the box thinking -- I would have probably gone with standard (boring?) green trees -- but yours pop!

LeAnne...Every once in awhile I just have to tell you how much I love your blog, granddaughter, family and especially your talent. Thank you again for being you.

ok, first i have to say ♥I LOVE THIS♥ in every respect: for its divinely clean one-layer C&S aesthetic, for the pristine stamping, image placement... the piercing... just every single element totally works!

but also... when i saw it in the gallery my first thought truly was, "how ♥FABULOUS♥ that the trees are that gorgeous rich red!!!!" because whereas green ones would no doubt have been very pretty... (& are undeniably ACCURATE!) ...the red just adds a twist of whimsy and uniqueness that i ♥LOVE♥!!! so there! :)

Oh LeAnne, I totally want to CASE this! The green and kraft would have been equally lovely, but red is my FAVORITE color, so I am in *LOVE* with this real red card. The paper piercing is a perfect addition. This is simply elegant...hey, that would be a great name for a blog ;)
