Wonky Trees Border

The cards I'm blogging today are made with another of the Craft Robo templates I made last week.  It's a border template using my favourite "Wonky" Trees.  They come out every year in some giuise or other because they are so easy to do!
Usually I just use whatever scraps I have around - I stick paper scraps to card scraps and then cut out the tree shapes freehand with scissors and add trunks with scraps of coloured or glitter card,
This is a bit more "organised" but I'm fairly happy with how the idea turned out.  I'm not sure Mr Robo would be too keen on cutting glitter card - and the carrier sheets definitely wouldn't like it so I just hand-cut a curvy strip to highlight the border strip.
Materials and Tools:
Papers: Echo Park "Winter Park" 6x6
Glitter card; white, pale and deep turquoise, silver,
Sentiments made with Decal paper from Crafty Computer Paper
:Punches, EK Success small Stars, Woodware small Snowflake
Craft Robo template: Wonky Tree Border
Dies: Cuttlebug Snowflakes, Memory Box Crystalline Border

I've more of these cut and ready to stick, so that's what I'm off to do now!
Thanks for visiting today, please come back soon :)

I love your wonky trees. They look especially good on this card but I also love the whole idea of something relatively simple that you can keep re-inventing. Your a genius xx

Lovely and wonky Kathy but I think you are right about Mr Robo not liking glitter card. :)
