Season's Greetings

I came across Ling's Design Studio and saw Caring Hearts Card Drive. They're collecting cards to give to the elderly in nursing homes and assisted living/care centers. Make sure to check it out!!

If that isn't enough to get you to want to make some cards, there's prizes too!

I'd love to have a great story about how I got the inspiration for this card.. but this is how it happened... I was sitting at my desk, scratching my noggin and was facing where I keep my eyelets, thinking about making a Christmas Card. Staring at my eyelet container for a minute I thought why now make a Christmas tree out of eyelets?

And now you know my thought, are you scared now?

I was going to distress the edges of the kraft cardstock, but only remembered AFTER I adhered it.

I'd love to make more, but I don't have many green eyelets left!

To make the tree: You could always freehand, but since I can't, I used a ruler instead! Say your cardstock is 3 inches wide.. using a ruler, make a dot where 1 1/2 is, then move the ruler down a bit, making sure to leave enough room for the eyelets. Then mark a dot at 1 and 2 and so on down the tree. And don't forget to leave room for the trunk!

Don't you love that button?? I sure do!

How creative is that! You remind me I still have tons of eyelets to use. Thank you for supporting Caring Hearts Card Drive! I really appreciate it!
