Quick card share today. This one was in the recent Paper Crafts issue (which, by the way, is a really good issue!) and a few people emailed me to ask how it was done. So here it is…

Super easy. I added double-sided tape to cardstock. Then I took off the release paper, added green glitter, burnished it well and cut it into a tree. Did it again for a trunk piece. (Supplies are listed below.)


Oh, and a Studio Calico wood veneer star colored with Copics for the top.

LOVE LOVE LOVE that Paper Smooches set. “Blessings?” That is one of my favorite words, and therefore favorite greetings.

See you soon.

(By the way, the winner of the True Scrap 4 spot is Christy Norton. Lain will email you soon!)
