Heartbeat of a Rainbow

Hello.  Welcome.  The Twofer challenge theme is up and it grabbed Mr Mojo's attention, which is quite an achievement at the moment I can tell you!!  Trees.  Ready, set, craft!!!!

OK, two cards using the same die or stamp in line with the theme, for two different occasions, in two different styles.  I used Memory Box Frosted Christmas Tree
Is Mr Mojo hot, or wot!!
Entering the pair into the Twofer Card Challenge #6 - Trees

Memory Box have a rainbow theme this month so I thought it would be fun to make my tree rainbow colours.  Then I thought the tree was an interesting shape and two trees, top to top on their sides, a geometric delight.  I decided to use the Rubber Dance sentiment Don't Let Anyone Ever Dull Your Sparkle and added glitter glue to my trees to reinforce the sparkle bit.  I was going to go with a more subdued background but this piece of patterned paper waved at me in an enthusiastical manner.  Bright on bright, an encouragement card with attitude.  

For my second card I was inspired by trees and wood and using a woodgrain stamp as a background that I saw over on the Winnie and Walter blog.  I took a scrap of textured pink card and stamped with Picked Raspberry DOx and Winnie and Walter's Mini Scenery Marbleize stamp.   Well, I think it looks a bit woodgrainy!!  No worries about the messy joints cos when I added the tree magic happened........

I did use a bit of ink that was still on the marbleize stamp to make the 'horizon' a bit more solid.  I cut the stamped panel with Sizzix Deckle Edge die.  I cut the Memory Box tree from white card, embossed it and added irridecent glitter glue to the embossed areas.  Then I mounted it on a raspberry pink base that I cut with Stamplorations Crazy Double Stitch rectangle die.  I think this makes a very respectable alternative christmas card.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
