Jewel Christmas Tree

The current ABC Christmas Challenge is 'J for Jewels' and I've used oddments of gems for my Jewel Christmas Tree.  I am also entering the Classic Design Team Open Challenge where 'Anything Goes' and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra where 'Anything Goes as long as it's Christmas'.


Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk
Stamp: Woodware 'Bubble Bloom - Festive Tree' 
Embossing: Stampendous Clear embossing powder
Ink: Versafine Vintage Sepia
Card: Brown matt and white silk
Other: Assorted gems (makes unknown)

I stamped and embossed the tree and sentiment onto white card.  The tree image was trimmed, layered onto brown card and attached to the left side of the card blank.  The sentiment was trimmed, layered onto brown card and attached to the lower edge of the card with Pinflair glue.  I then added various gems and pearls to decorate the tree.

How pretty your tree looks with all the embellishments, yet it still has a lovely CAS feel to it Kath.

Stunning card! And a great way to use up the drawers full of jewels we all have on hand. Since the newer pricier postal prices here in Canada, I have not been using my large and medium sized jewels like I used to and just one bumps my postage up higher. Why or why did I not think that if I was going to use one, I might as well make an impact and use more, as then the cost is the same anyways?

Brilliant idea here and one I am going to give a try!
