Now here is a tree that you can embellish any way you want! I chose to use flowers but sequins, stars, colored pearls, or just about anything shiny and bright would work. I hope that you will try this technique out.
After running the Striped Scallop Thinlits die through the big shot with the precision base plate, I trimmed it down into the shape of a Christmas tree. The precision base plate makes it so much easier to pop this diecut out. I have included a link to the Stampin’ UP! video on how to use the plate properly. The fine tip glue pen makes it easy to attach the tree to the cardstock base.
To make the pot, insert glimmer paper cardstock halfway into the hexagon punch. Punch a star with the same gold glimmer paper. To make the flower ornaments, punch several out of the dazzling diamonds glimmer paper and top them off with Home For Christmas enamel dots. Glue the tree to a base of real red cardstock embossed with the Spring Flowers folder. Glue the ornaments on the tree.
Stamp the Merry Wishes sentiment on whisper white cardstock and attach to the center of the tree with dimensionals. Top it off with a cute bow of real red striped ribbon and attach everything to a base of whisper white cardstock. Let me know what you think of this cute little Christmas tree in the comments.
