Ice Blue Christmas Tree Card Project

Ice Blue Christmas Tree Card - By Jenny. 
I love the new ice blue Christmas papers and thought you might like to see an idea for a quick card using them.

This uses our standout tree card CC03U-52, creative papers SR182P, SR181P and SR180P, a bit of stardream silver  card STD01C, a pack of Bling Gems GEM59, snowflake peel offs XL442U-08 and XL493U-17.

Cover the back panel with the striped paper. Cover the tree and border with the snowflake paper. Use a snowman border and a wording border cut from the sheet on the top and bottom edge.

Place the tree on an eyelet mat and punch random holes through the tree using a large eyelet punch.

Cut a tree from white card a little larger than the tree on the card (draw around the tree onto the card and cut out outside the line). Use sticky fixers to stick this under the main tree so it gives a nice white edge. Add a silver gem through each hole.

Punch, or cut round a 5p coin, 6 baubles from silver and stick a white snowflake on each, sticking these to the ends of the branches on the white tree. Stick a large snowflake onto silver card and cut to shape for the top of the tree and make a silver pot, adding a snowflake to decorate it.

Stick the card closed, cut a narrow silver strip and make a frame inside the border.

We hope you enjoy making this card.
