My tree definitely didn't turn out like hers, but I went for the more whimsical look(that's what I call it when everything is a little wonky or not perfect - it's whimsical!) and used a chipboard spool from Wendy Vecchi's art parts for the base. I covered the base with Authentique Christmas papers and hot glued my tree wire inside. I used book paper instead of newspaper for the tree. I also used Sage Distress stain and sprayed Tattered Angels Marshmallow, and Spanish Moss Glimmer Mist on the book pages before stringing on the tree.
The glitter snowflakes are chipboard snowflakes cut out with Tim Holtz's small snowflake die and then covered in silver glass glitter.
On the spool, I added some Tim Holtz mini bottles, filled with the Shaved Ice and a few acrylic snowflakes. There's my tree, but on the Martha Stewart website, she has a video showing how to put the tree together.
Here also, is the one card I got done!
Webster's Pages Holiday papers, Tim Holtz doily die, Spellbinders label die, and Memory Box snowflake die. The adhesive ribbon (love this ribbon!!!) is new at Urban and there's even adhesive lace ribbon. It is so nice for cards. The berries on the side of the card are also from Webster's Pages(last year). Hopefully I don't get too sidetracked again, and get more cards done! Till next time!
