Blue and Green Christmas Tree

This week's Less is More challenge is to use 'Blue and Green'. 



I stamped the Woodware Holly Tree stamp onto green Raspberry Road paper and stamped the star, holly leaves and two pots onto blue Kate Knight paper (the papers were all magazine freebies).  I cut around the tree and one of the pots (cutting the sides straight to remove the bow) and attached them to a white pearlescent card blank. I attached the star, holly leaves and the bow (from the second pot) to thin white card and cut out the shapes before inking the edges with a black Promarker.   I then used silicone glue to attach them to the card.  I used dark and pale blue gems to decorate the tree.  To finish, I drew around the swirls with Diamond Stickles.
