more Christmas tree ideas...

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'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)
