These cards use a 6ins x 6ins 130gsm. Kraft card blank from Craft UK Ltd.
These cards use the bumper bargain boxes of flat backed gems that Marc and I bought from HobbyCraft for £3 during his stay with me. I just love the colours, as there is an unusual dusty blue in with the turquoise pack and gold, black and grey in the other pack which again are a bit different.
When I looked at the gems I immediately thought jewelled Christmas trees as they came in varying sizes and there were so many I knew didn’t have to be stingy when using them. I could bling to my hearts content!
So, all I did was cut a triangle shape out for the tree with each side measuring 3.5ins and then I embellished it generously with the gems. The tree was then placed on some very simple mat and layering, first using a contracting colour (teal and black) which was then matted on silver mirri card. The final touches were made with a little faux stitching and doodling using a white gel pen.
