This week at the Paper Players we have a great theme brought to us by Jaydee:
Originally I started out making something with leaves but got sidetracked by a technique I saw here and I thought I'd have a go using the Christmas tree die from the Holiday collection framelits...
Lots of details to share on this one, so here goes:
The tree was created by cutting two framelit label shapes and cutting out a tree from one then layering ribbon strips on the other (Lucky Limeade ruffled ribbon and Choc Chip scallop dots). I added some silver and Real Red brads then layered the piece with the tree window over the top. I added a star cut from the same framelits set as the tree, with lots of silver dazzling diamonds over the top. I added faux stitching with an Early Espresso marker around the tree and the edges of the label. This whole piece was glued onto a layer of Primrose Petals card.
The background paper is from the new Candlelight Christmas specialty paper, layered on Early Espresso card. The ribbon is Very Vanilla seam binding, tied in a bow then with another bow tied over the top with some linen thread. The sentiment from Delightful Decorations was stamped with Real Red on Crumb Cake, punched out with a 3/4" circle punch then covered with Crystal Effects to create an epoxy sticker type of effect. I rounded the corners of all the layers to soften the overall effect.
I used the Merry Monday sketch for my layout:
