So here's my alternative:
Oh, and here are the originals-as per the directions in the box!
Now this month the cards are unique in that they are a tri-fold.
I simply cut the scenery piece off & used it on some beautiful Bermuda Bay cardstock! I stamped an extra tree & created a scene! I try hard to keep my alternatives to using just what's in the kit with the exception of some extra cardstock. This kit had plenty of goodness to fit that bill!
I used my Blending Brushes to add some color to the cut-out tree! I'm not a fan of the white outline on a die cut so I tried to fix that. And the Granny Apple Green blended perfectly!!!!
I used the stamp set-which I can see coming out frequently with Christmas cards-to create the extra trees! AND I stamped the image on the waste cut-out part from the circle!
Seeing as I cut the piece from the tri-fold, I couldn't waste the other part! I created a card from that piece too! lol
