Christmas Tree Bling


Today is the third day of the Scribbles Designs Christmas Carol Celebration. I hope you have been playing along with the challenges. Today I have some festive trees to share with you, all blinged up in their finery.



Materials used:
Scribbles Designs – Festive Trees
Dovecraft paper pack – Twelve Days of Christmas
X-Press It card
Copic pens
A5 white card blank
sparkle gel pens

The words have been printed onto a piece of the designer paper then used to cover the front of the card blank having first been trimmed to be slightly smaller. The green edge is made with a Copic pen.

The trees have been coloured with Copics. I have used three images and layered up the trees to different depths. The photo is taken on a slight angle to show the layers which is why it looks out of alignment.

Each of the three trees has been ‘blinged up’ differently. The far left is a mix of different colours of gems. The middle tree is red, purple and white pearl with little red and purple stars hanging off the bottom and the far right tree is coloured with the sparkle gel pens. All the top stars are coloured with a silver pen.

This was a fun card to make although the part that took the longest was sticking on all those gems, the small ones were really fiddly and kept pinging out of the tweezers!

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
