Have you got your limited edition Karen Day Design Christmas Trees yet? I've got mine, and wow are they gorgeous! These chipboard shapes look equally at home on a card, an off the page project or a layout, and there's plenty of inspiration in the Scrapware galleries to get you creating. Here's a couple of the projects I've been working on...they are super easy...here's how:
Christmas Card - featuring KDD Starry trees.
- Use a premade white card or cut a piece of white cardstock to measure 6x8 and fold in half (front should measure 6x4)
- Cut patterned paper to 3.5x5.5 (I have used WeRMemory Keepers)
- Trim felt flowers (American Crafts) in half and layer in centre of patterned paper
- Ink Starry Tree in coordinating colour (VersaColor "Bamboo") and fix in place over the top of the felt flowers
- Insert assorted brads in the holes of the Starry Tree (7gypsies, Cloud Nine, Christina Re)
- Add holiday themed rubons down left handside and bottom right corner (Pink Paislee), then doodle around the outside edge
- Attach patterned paper/tree to front of card and tie coordinating ribbon around card
- Finally, add kindy glitz or similar along the edges of the flowers and fill star, and allow to dry.
Christmas Frame - featuring KDD Chrissy trees.
- Frame measures 5x7 with 3.5x5 mount included - purchased from discount store
- Remove mount from frame and attach a 6x4 piece of patterned paper to reverse side (WeRMemory Keepers)
- Trace shape of frame onto photo and trim to size
- Ink Chrissy Tree in a contrasting colour (VersaColor "Pinecone")
- Attach photo to the back of the tree, then centre on patterned paper
- Enhance holes of the Chrissy Tree with rhinestones (Kaiser)
- Add decorative rubons along the bottom of the tree (Pink Paislee) and doodle around the other three sides
- Add ribbon to the outside of the mount and return to frame
- Finally, add a seasonal rubon to the outside of the frame (Pink Paislee)
