 My project today was made using Cutout Christmas Tree, Window with Shutters and Border Duo 1.

I love the Cutout Christmas Tree with the fun flourish at the bottom. I thought it would be fun to create a clean and simple scene letting the tree be the main focus.  I couldn’t resist adding a simple open window.  Check out my open window tutorial if you would like to see how I make my windows scenes.

I cut the tree out in green and then using the negative of the tree as a template to draw the lines on red cardstock.  I cut out the red tree and attached it be hind the green to create the red ornaments. I placed a little yellow piece to show behind the star and added yellow stickles for twinkle.  I attached the tree to the base of the card with mounting tape.
