Cricut Christmas Swirl Tree

I had seen some really cute Swirly Christmas Trees on some card.  So I did a search and found a couple--this Hero Arts Digital Swirl Tree and this Hero Arts Acrylic stamp and also this Hero Arts Wood Stamp.  But I was really hoping to find a Cricut cut.  Instead, I tried my hand at making my own with the Storybook Cricut Cartridge.

I know it isn't perfect (and I definitely need to play with the pressure/speed settings), but it is ok for my first try.

I don't even want to try to attempt to give instructions on how I made this because there 6 swirls I had to adjust and flip.  So I will just share the file :)

I might cut a few of the swirls along the sides (kinda like trimming off the extra branches on a real tree :D )

Enjoy!  (cannot wait for the Christmas Season to begin!!!)

ETA--I made a You Tube Tutorial--you can see it here :)
