Oh Christmas Tree

Hi guys!  Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree! Makes you feel like singing, doesn't it!  I love this pretty Christmas tree die, it's just so elegant.  I used the blue tissue paper faux silk technique to create the background for my card.  If you missed the directions for this, you can find them in the post dated June 22nd.  I added a strip of gold dotted paper for interest to my background.  I cut a Holly Accent borders and glued it to the right hand side of the card.  I tied a piece of gold silky crush ribbon around the card and tied a double bow and attached it with glue dots.   I cut a Holly motif out of gold card.  I cut the top half at the swirls on the sides and used it as an accent above my Christmas tree.  I cut one of the smaller motif pieces and cut it in half to create two large corner pieces. on the left side of the card.  I added some large half pearls to the Christmas tree as accents.  I pierced the edges as a final detail for the card.  All for now, Sue x

This is a fabulous card and certainly one to do. I think my xmas cards will be along these lines, its so elegant, but perhaps in lilac and white.

melanie said...

This is a stunning card didn`t manage to get xmas tree die as that set sold out will have to wait till it`s released over here .melanie

Lucy said...

That faux silk paper technique using the dark blue paper is very elegant and classy. The pearls and the gold accents really make this a gorgeous card. It goes without saying that the bow is lovely and adds to the classiness.

scottish crafter said...

Hi Sue these colours together are amazing and love the dies. If only money was not so tight I would love to have them all. Will have to take it slow and build up my collection, so please don't bring any more new dies out although I see from Spellbinder web page there are more to come. Oh no.

Heather said...

Good morning Sue WOW this card is so pretty I am using the tree die at the moment (I make cards for charity so started now ready for Christmas ) so I will try to mimic this card. I love the colours you've used, I love blue with white and silver but I have never tried using blue with gold. I must try it because it looks amazing, I have a sheet of gold card similar to the one you 've used but because I only have the one sheet I am reluctant to use it. Do you know of somewhere where I could buy it please?

HiggiSue said...

I absolutely love this card and now my dies have arrived I will be doing something similar for those special cards. trying to think of a way to scale the cards to A5 without losing the effect as postage of the 8 x8s is quite costly. Any ideas anyone?

Thank you Sue.

Rose in Chester said...

Sue, this is an absolute stunner. Watched your demo of this one and the idea of using tissue paper is absolutely fab. Have to look out in an English "thrift" shop for a bargain such as you managed to get.
This Xmas tree is beautiful and is on my list to get.
thanks for all your cards, giving everyone so much inspiration.

yvette said...

This is such a stunning card! I loved the technique you did with the tissue paper :)

I have a question though, since you design for Spellbinders as well. I absolutely love the motivs and accents sets they bring to us, but I was wondering in future if there could be some with squares,rectangles and/or ovals, as up untill now everything seems to be very circle :)

Tres said...

Hi Sue. I saw this card on cc. It is absolutely gorgeous. I really love it!! I will definitely be buying both the 2 holly sets and the Christmas tree dies when I can. I love the tissue paper technique and will be giving that one a go too. The colour combination is unusual. Gold and blue together. A stunning and elegant card. Love it !! Love Tres x x x

Love this card Sue. I have bought the tree and holly dies, and have been sorting all my new Spellbinders ready to use. Will definitely try to do a version of this one. I also thought I might try cutting off the two outer swirls of the tree and turn it upside down to make a chandelier. Have you tried that one?

nikkib said...

This is my new fave die, I love this one... no doubt I'l find a new fave one soon but for now, this is it.... I loved this card when you demo'd it.....

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I can do this! Whether or not it will look as good as yours remains to be seen. I saw you demo this one and stored it away in my memory for future use so I am glad you have posted it now. I'm thinking maybe red and gold or green and silver - you can see I'm a traditionalist.

Linda (Lindyloo) said...

Hi Sue,
Well now I cannot sing....... OOOhhh!! When you demo'd this card I was singing my head of and thought I know what I will be writing about when you show this card!! Ah Ha I thought....then I log in and you are singing it on the blog instead. Blow me down with a feather, I stopped singing instantly.......you beat me to it!! So I have a cheeky grin on my face instead!!
I adored the crushed silk effect the first time you showed it and it is still as beautiful now, especially so in that fabulous deep blue.
As you said on the show while doing the demo, this is a fairly simple card to do, but with your clever touches you have made it look like something that took hours. Very clever and so beautiful.
All the best Linda

I was really glad I saw the faux silk background demo as it looked easier seeing it than working it out from the explanation. This is such a super card
