creative tuesday: three (and AEDM)

Christmas is definitely on my mind and I have the thought to make some of my cards - special friends/family so I played with that a bit today.  Here's my first effort - used scrapbook paper, a tiny tangle and some ribbon.  While it's okay, I think I can do better so will play with it some more (but I better hurry up!).


Hmmm - the white edges don't work so well here, but it's a 5x6.5" card.  Submitted for AEDM and to Creative Tuesday for her theme of "3" (3 ornament shapes).

PS - I did another one and I think I like this card idea better - I used THREE branches and like the color of the berries; I don't like the tangle in the large bird (it's too jumbled, need something different there) and the bird on the lower branch doesn't quite read as a bird but overall, I think it's a nice design.  I wonder if the branches should have a tangle fill or would that be too busy?  I welcome your thoughts.

  3. Enjoying your three and the use of your tangles. I think the second card would also look great using only a single branch and of course with my new appreciation with UTEE, you could tangle the bird the way you like and then emboss it :).
    Stay inspired!

  4. I LOVE that bird card, and I think the branches look great the way they are - emphasizes the great tangles in the birds and leaves.

    I reallly love what you did with the birds on he branchs - the simple color palette and the splash of bright dots, really make this a cool piece! I bet it would do really well as a card!
