For all the Whos in Whoville

A few weeks ago, the Technique Lovers Challenge at SCS was making a folded tree. Couldn't be simpler -- you take half a circle and put three folds in it, and you're done. I made several of them that day, figuring they'd be useful on Christmas cards.

Sure enough, those trees are proving handy to have around as I make Christmas cards. This one fit perfectly into this week's sketch at 365 cards #277.

There's something about the trees I made that makes them look a little Seussical. I think they'd be perfect for Cindy-Lou Who, don't you? (Actually, I suspect they would also look quite elegant if done in an embossed white, and I need to try that).  I happen to have a pad of Christmas dp someone gave me that also has that sort of Seussical feel to it. Personally, I like my Christmas stuff traditional, so I've been struggling to use this paper in ways I can live with. I think the little Whoville tree card with the whimsical circles and squares on the dp actually works pretty well together.
