Just Believe by Shady Tree Studio


How sweet and simple is this darling little Christmas tree? It reminds me SO much of the first Christmas tree DH and I ever had! Twenty years ago we were young and broke and couldn't really even afford the tree we bought, which looked just like this. It was so tiny and forlorn, we set it up on the buffet and decorated it there. Ever since, we have both had a soft spot for little trees and have had several Charlie Brown trees over the years, even when we could afford better. You can see the rest of this darling set here. There is an angel, Santa and a snowman, and all of them are every bit as charming as this sweet little tree!

The star accent is from Creative Cuts and More. It is the Star #2 Small with Layer. I love the way they fit together perfectly, and that there are dozens and dozens of materials you can choose. You can also send in your own paper and have them cut it! This one is 3x3, there's also a 4x4 star!

I made this for a challenge over at Ginger Snap Creations.

Beautiful card, Carla! I must confess a love for big, fat Christmas trees, but I do feel very soft-hearted toward the Charlie Browns! Love your sweet story.

Charlie Brown trees hold so much more meaning most of the time! DH and I used to drive into the boonies and cut down our own. We always eneded up with a Charlie brown tree when we did that! haha! Your card is adorable, I just love it!
