A Very Merry Christmas Tree by Lynne

Greetings! 'Tis the season for handcrafted gifts and I created this tree for a good friend of mine who admired a similar one I had made for myself last year.

I primed the tree and base with coppery-gold acrylic paint then heat-embossed the tree with Stampendous Aged Copper. I love the bits of green interspersed with the copper colour!

The snowflakes were primed with gesso then heat-embossed with Stampendous Aged Ivory which has flecks of gold that give them a vintage look.

The tree and base pieces glued together wonderfully; I added a green bow and a couple wrapped mini-presents to complete the festive effect-a simple project to put together that looks like it was a lot more work than it was (now THAT'S right up my alley this busy time of year!!)  Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas and hope Santa brings you lots of crafty goodies!
