Snippets Christmas trees

I wanted to create some cards using snippets for Pixie's Snippets Playground, so I digged up my plastic boxes with strips and small panels of left-over papers from many years ago and cut up some of the strips in to even smaller strips to create these fun and quirky Christmas trees.

One of the snippets had some glitter stripes, which prompted me to heat emboss my sentiments in rose gold embossing powder. For my stars, I heat embossed a snippet of white cardstock in rose gold and then die cut the stars, that I popped up with some foam tape. 

I'm linking up my cards at:

  3. ok, see, you just keep on surprising me with the variety and awesomeness of your PINK XMAS cards! i've seen snippets trees before, but truly never one as cool as this! love it! yet another fabulous addition to our PINK XMAS gallery at JINGLE BELLES, thank you so much! ♥

  4. I adore that little paper tree (note to self, make some of those with my own paper scraps) ... and the touches of PINK are marvelous ... we always appreciate your support for us at Jingle Belles.

  5. I agree with Stefanie: I have to make some of these - hopefully in time for THIS Christmas. I'm way behind but I haven't quite given up yet! Anyhow, what a great way to use those tiny snippets!
    Cheers, Barbara

  6. A great idea! I made some cards with Washi tape this week and it is such a clever idea to use up what you have. Quick and simple, which is what I like xx
