starry tree

Welcome to my crafty blog and another Christmas card in non-traditional colours. I’ve used one of the papers from Stampin’ Up!’s new ‘fitting florets’ pack, picking up the layout from CAS Colours & Sketches, the ‘festive’ theme from Inspire.Create and the middle row of christmas tree/sparkle/star from TicTacToe‘s grid.

I thought the blue & pink paper would work well for a Christmas tree image. I used the retired SU tree punch to cut three shapes from it & trimmed the trunk off two of them so they were just triangles. I turned them over to the pink side and glued them onto a 6×6 card blank. I then added the third one on foam pads, using the leaves and berries side.

I heat embossed an offcut of ‘night of navy’ card using WOW’s ‘clear sparkle’ powder, then cut out small stars using one of Julie Hickey’s ‘you’re a star’ dies. I stamped the sentiment from the retired ‘peaceful noel’ set in navy, glued one of the stars to the top of the tree and scattered the others around.

I really like the graphic design of ths one – it would work in lots of other colours too.

  2. That blue paper design is my absolute favourite in that pack so it’s lovely to see it showcased in your non-traditional Christmas tree Deborah! Thanks for playing with us over at CAS Colours & Sketches and TicTacToe Challenge this week!
