Christmas Tree


Hello ....
It's a happy day today because I have my Aunt safely back home ... I know it will take a while before she is fully fit but just being together is wonderful!

Today is also a new challenge at Papercraft Star and this week we are asking that you create a project that includes a Christmas Tree


Easy huh?

I just had to make one of those little folded trees ... 


I used some lovely paper from Astrid for my background and folded the tree using vellum which I gave a generous coating of glitter and mica flakes


I'm not sure if you can notice ... but I printed that paper twice and cut out some of the flowers and used foam dots to adhere them and give some dimension ... and then lots of liquid pearls


I even put liquid pearls on that little reindeer! The stars were cut using a Sizzix die and some glitter paper from Papermania

My team mates have some more samples for you ... just head on over to the blog ...
We look forward to seeing your creations this week

Thanks so much for stopping by and thank you for all your lovely lovely comments ... my Aunt and I are so grateful for your well wishes

Have a beautiful day
