Diamond Christmas Tree

2022 Heart of Christmas LogoEach Monday, join me for the Heart of Christmas Blog Hop brought to you by the Art With Heart team. We will be showcasing our July-December Mini catalogue and Annual catalogue Christmas products.

Now here’s a different style Christmas card, using diamonds to create the Christmas tree!

Diamond Christmas Tree card using Stampin Up Lights Aglow SDSP by Kate Morgan, Australia 2022

This card is a 5″ x 5″ square design and I added an extra panel to the front which the diamonds are adhered to (the join is behind the patterned papers). The sentiment (Brightest Glow) is stamped in Versamark ink, Gold Emboss Powder added and set using the Heat Tool. Using Paper Snips, I cut the banners at each end. I added this with Black Dimensionals.

On the inside of the card you can see a strip of the gold and patterned papers, the same as the front design.
