MIM #229: Fabric Strip Christmas Trees


Melissa Phillips plays with fabric on PTI's MIM this week.
She shows how to create a card using a straw and strips of 
fabric & ribbon. She even throws in some lace.
Melissa is all about the details, and that's my 
favorite thing about card making!


My Christmas fabric stash provided the torn strips.
Ribbons and lace, yes!
The star was in my cut files, not sure what die, but covered it in glitter, and a button.
Tiniest Tags with a tiny tag sentiment.
Buttons, vintage bells, sequins, love!
Used Star Scribbles for the bg, stamped in Soft Stone.
Stamper's Select White Cardstock on a Vintage Jadeite card base.

Plan to make more of these, so much fun!
Thank you Melissa!

Taking my DH in to have shoulder surgery tomorrow, 
and would appreciate all my blogging friends' prayers for 
all to go well. Thank you in advance. Will let you know how 
it goes.
