I usually don't decorate the tree until after Thanksgiving but I had numerous requests after my YouTube tutorial on assembling the Pop Up Christmas Tree Die to show the tree decorated. Here is the cared I made, it measures 5" square.
The card is a 10" by 5" piece of Night of Navy scored in the middle to create the card base. Over this is layered Whisper White, Bashful Blue, and then more Night of Navy. I stamped my tree and greeting from Snow Swirled in Versamark and embossed with White Stampin' Emboss powder. A Whisper White Satin Ribbon topped with Silver Elastic cord finishes it off up front! (The idea for the Elastic cord garland came from Jennifer Jones, thanks Jennifer!!)
Inside you find my delightful Bashful Blue Tree complete with Silver Elastic Cord garland and Filigree Brad "star!" My sentiment is from Many Merry Messages...I chose this one because it specifically mentions a tree.
Here is a close up image of my decorated tree, I love the way it turned out! If you missed my YouTube tutorial the first time, click here to see it. It really is easy to assemble once you get the hang of it, it took me way longer to punch the little holes to thread the garland through!!
