My friend Marla told me to check out Julie Ann Marshall's card on her blog. It was from a year ago, but I really liked the concept of paper piecing a Christmas tree. I changed it slightly by using the designer paper from the new Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack. It was the first time I had the chance to use the Merry Christmas from the Greetings of the Season stamp set. Love it!

I don't usually put two colors inside the card, but I thought this one needed a little extra red to make it more Christmasy (a word?).
The measurements for the tree - Cut squares that are 1 3/4", 1 1/2", 1 1/4", and 1". Cut them on the diagonal. Have fun mixing and matching whatever paper you have! It's a great way to use up some DSP that you have laying around and knocking out a few Christmas cards at the same time!
