I created a quick tutorial on how to fold half circles into a Christmas tree for today’s tutorial on Splitcoaststampers.  I started out by cutting a circle out of Teresa Collins Christmas Cottage with the smallest of the Grand Circle Nestabilities die.  The circle was cut in half, folded and decorated with rhinestones.

A stamp from the Lollipop Treat stamp set was stamped in Jumbo Java VersaMagic Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. It was cut out and adhered under the tree.

The upper right and lower left corner of a 3″ x 5″ piece of Kraft cardstock were rounded. The bottom was stamped with a background stamps from the Lollipop Treat set and a sentiment from  Document It – December in Moonlight White Brilliance Ink. The edges were pierced before the Christmas tree was adhered with foam adhesive squares.

A piece of black polka dotted Washi Tape was adhered to the top right corner of the kraft cardstock. It was topped with a button, tied on with silver cord. The layer was adhered to the card base, a 3 1/2″ x 11″ piece of white cardstock. A sentiment from Christmas Ornaments was stamped to the lower right edges of the card with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.
