Petals-a-Plenty Christmas Tree

Good Wednesday afternoon!  How is everyone this fine day?  I'm great!  Thanks!  Today's blog project comes from (not so) little ol' me!  :)  It's an embossed Christmas tree made from the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder.  I used the fabulous Patty Bennett's idea from her blog post here.  She is a creative genius!


I cut out a triangle shape using some cardboard packaging I saved from Make-n-Takes at Convention 2008.  I knew I would need it for something.  LOL  One sheet didn't work, so I cut out another triangle and glued the 2 of them together.   That worked perfectly.   I used Shimmery White cardstock and rubbed some Champagne Mist shimmer paint all over the tree.  Then I colored the berries with Real Red.  The star at the top of the tree is punched from YoYo Yellow and also sponged with Champagne Mist shimmer paint then adhered with a dimensional.  This card is so sparkly IRL.  The sentiment is from Four the Holidays and is stamped on Shimmery White in Real Red.  A piece of Soft Suede polka-dot ribbon (I love this ribbon!) finishes off the card. 

Supplies(all SU!):  Stamps-  Four the Holidays.  Ink- Real Red.  Paper- Shimmery White, Real Red, Soft Suede, YoYo Yellow.  Accessories-  Big Shot, Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder, Star punch, Champagne Mist shimmer paint, Soft Suede polka-dot ribbon, dimensionals, sponge dauber.

Until next week...
Happy stampin'!
