12 Cards of Christmas - Card 9

This one is a simple Christmas Tree made from punches. I used Ski Slope DSP, rather than plain paper to punch from. I think it adds a touch more sophistication.
The tree is made from 3 Scalloped Squares. The bottom layer is 5 scallops wide (The full width of the punch). You just cut off both sides at an angle to make a triangle shape. To get the sides even, cut towards the middle point at the top of the square (at 2 1/2 scallops). The next one is exactly the same, but only 4 scallops wide, and the top one is 3 scallops wide. A star for the top, and a Word Window trunk complete the tree.

TIP: If you have 'empty space' in the corners of your project, add interest by taking a 'bite' out of each corner with a circle punch (I use the 1/2" Circle)
