Flower Petal Christmas Tree


I've got a Christmas tree card to show you today, with a unique twist.


This tree is made from paper flower petals, painted with Emerald shimmer paint.  (You may recall I made some shamrocks with these, too.)





I cut them apart and assembled into a tree, directly onto the patterned paper, using craft glue.  Use the glue sparingly, though, so it does not warp the paper beneath (you live, you learn ;).


The punched-star was gilded with Gold shimmer paint, and the tree trunk (a Word Window punch) sports a coat of Chocolate shimmer paint.


Thanks for joining me today!
