Christmas Tree

If you follow Christine Emberson's blog you would have seen her gorgeous tree she made using Spellbinders dies. I didn't have anything like that so I used Sue Wilson Perfect Peony dies, ideal as they have different sizes in one set, so I choose 3 and was able to run them through the machine at same time. When I got the top I did finish with just smaller ones. As I left this project quite late, I didn't have time to go out and source something to go on top, so I used a snowflake die from Clearly besotted, cut it twice from some satin card and backed it together with a pin inside. This then just popped in the top of the polystyrene cone which I picked up at Hobby crafts. The paper pad is First Edition Gilded Winter. I did spray the flowers with some glitter spray from Crafters Companion, it did take me a few night to complete but I loved doing it.
