O Christmas Tree

Morning, Thank you so much for stopping by today. The collection that Leonie Launched on Hochanda on August 10th has been a pleasure to work with as always. I have so enjoyed the entwined concept that I decided to use it again with this card. The tree is so elegant and stately that it deserves to take centre stage.

To start with I cut out the Entwined Christmas Tree base from Holly Green Silk Art card. Before I entwined these later, I added some Empire Gold Gilding wax from Pebeo to the green base.

Next I took so red Silk Art card, secured a piece of Stick it adhesive sheet to it and cut it using the Entwined Christmas Tree 'Frost'. When it was cut I removed the backing and covered with 'Festive Red' Diamond Sparkles from Hunkydory. I did the same with the 'Happy' & 'Christmas' from the Entwined Cross Base.

I entwined the tree and set aside. Ten I took a 6'' square piece of Navy Silk Art card and covered it with snow, using a white Sharpie fine liner pen. Then I secured the words and the tree to the base using Cosmic Shimmer. I then backed this onto white gloss card, leaving a 1 1/4'' boarder on all sides.

Then I cut a frame from the same Navy card and placed over my design, This was cut to leave a 1/4'' border of white all around the inner card to frame the design.

Thank you so much for joining me again. I hope that you have enjoyed the step by step I have shared with you and the finished piece. I hope you will pop by again very soon, for now Take care and Happy Crafting.xx
