Orange Christmas Tree

This month's Christmas Cards All Year Round challenge is 'Use Some Orange' and we are sponsored by Freshly Brewed Designs.  For my card I've made an inlaid die-cut Christmas tree (one of my favourite techniques at the moment) but I have found it hard to photograph the mirri card.

I'm entering Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Winter/Christmas', Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 'Anything Goes' and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra where 'Anything Goes as long as it's Christmas'.


Card blank: 6" x 4" white silk
Die: Memory Box 'Sparkling Tile Tree'
Snippets: Orange mirri and white silk card

I die-cut the tree from the white card and backed it with double sided tape.  I then die-cut the tree from several tiny snippets of orange mirri card and inserted these into the white tree.  This panel was then trimmed, layered onto a slightly larger piece of orange mirri and attached to the card front.
