Christmas Tree..

Hi ladies, Christmas tree is one of the symbol for Christmas.
I am playing for the CARD BLOG this week and again my card is picked as favourite featured.
I also play in the challenge of Sketch# 145 Card Pattern and Ribbon Reel challenge# 17.

 Color: Cream/White, Aqua/Blue and Silver

Now here we go with my card....

now here are the steps.....

Cut the square shapes into 2 cm by 2 cm onto the cardstock for 12 units.

Stamp the contras polka dots onto these 12 units squared shape with Aqua color ink.

Use glue to stick the little squared polka dots onto another cut cardstock (8cm by 10cm) that look like patchwork. Let it dry for 10-15 mins.

Thereafter, cut the patched polka dots into a shape of Xmas tree.
You may draw lightly behind the card of the shape of tree and follow the line to cut.

Cut the white cardstock of 28cm x 20cm. Fold them evenly to make it at 14cm x 10cm.
Emboss the front white card by any pattern you like. You may use machine Sizzix with preferred pattern template or free hand to emboss.

Cut the label into any shape you like.
Distress the side by using light brown to make the label more authentic-look.
 Stamp the little snowflakes onto the label in aqua ink color.

Cut the same shape of the label onto a white cardstock.
cut free hand at the bottom of the label to make it like ‘ground fills with glittered snows’.

Pour the glitter silver glue onto this cut free hand label.
Let it dry for 30 mins. Meanwhile do the decos.

use white paper 100gm and cut them out at 2cm x 20cm.

Distress the color of light brown.
Fold them like ribbon ruffled. Stick onto the left side of the main-white embossed card.
Cut another 1.5cm x 10cm pattern paper in aqua color and stick onto of the paper ribbon ruffled as 2nd layer.

Use border flowers puncher to punch onto white cardstock and stick another 3rd layer on top of the aqua pattern paper.

Use border scallop puncher to punch onto white cardstock and distress it with aqua color.

Stick onto the right side of the main-white embossed card.
Get a dolly paper and stick on top of the right deco slightly to see like over-lapped effect.

Stick altogether just like the picture

Punch the snowflake and the Xmas leaves onto white cardstock.
Put blue gillters onto the snowflake.
Stick the Xmas leaves at the top left side of the label as 1st layer.
Stick the glittered snowflake on top of the Xmas leaves as 2nd layer.

Stamp word of ‘Merry Christmas’ on top of a white cardstock with black ink.

Fussy cutting on the stamped word.
Stick onto the label.
