Oh Christmas Tree

I love this new Sizzix die which can only be had through Stampin Up! It is a bit of a challenge the first time you make it but the good thing about Stampin Up is that they give you a video to refer to which really helps. The challenge of making it is well worth the end product which is even better IRL. A sizzlit is also available to cut the star, a bulb, an ornament, and a circle. I also had some tiny bulbs which I found at Walmart on clearance last year which fit perfectly on the tree but I didn't get them in the photograph. It was also a bit of a challenge to photograph for me but of course most things involving photography challenge me. I cut a scallop circle to use as a tree skirt and actually attached the tree to it to make it more stable. The tree can also be mounted inside a card which I will attempt next. I am also going to make another one and us some DP or stamp on cardstock and see how this turns out. I hope you like my tree and if you are interested in ordering one they will, be available September 1.
