Art Deco Tree

Hi Bloggers.

I have a Christmas Card for you today -

For the background, I used a paper from Phill Martin's Frosted Essentials Paper Pad. I spread some Phill Martin CS Frosty Sky Sparkle Texture Paste through the Snowflake Flurry Mask and put aside to dry.

I made a frame out of Coconut White Card using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Squares. Once my background was dry, I added my frame using 3D Foam Tape.

I cut one of the tree dies from the Spellbinders Art Deco Trees Die Set out of Coconut White Card. I glued it to my background using CS Glue and added some 3mm Craft Consortium Pearls.

I cut the lovely corner swirl die from the Spellbinders Decorative 5 x 7 Holly Frame Die Set out of Coconut White Card and inked through the die with Phill Martin CS Frosty Sky Colour Cloud using a Smoothie. I made a flower using the Spellbinders Layered Poinsettis Die Set cut from a spotted paper from the same paper pad and inking through the dies with Frosty Sky Colour Cloud. I added a little Blue Dazzler to the centre of the flower.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 5mm Craft Consortium Pearl to the corners of the frame.

Sue Wilson has shows on Hochanda today at 2pm and 3pm and then tomorrow at 1pm and 2pm. John Lockwood is taking over on Monday with shows at 2pm and 6pm.
