Gem of a Christmas Tree Card.

This looks a very simple card,  but with my podgy fingers, getting the gems in position to create a reasonable Christmas tree shape was a little fiddle farty!

I won’t bore you with the details of how I made it, as the picture explains it all.

The card measures 115mm square.  The acrylic gems are from Paperchase, they are the best quality that I have found.  They come in single colours in small pots, measure 6mm and you get 300 for £2.75.  (This does not include the square gem, that is from a different source)

Pure genious - I'm going to use this idea to use up some large gems I got with my Christmas Magazine (hopefully there will be enough).
