Flower Petal Christmas Tree

Today, I have a Christmas tree card to show you, with a unique twist.  These leaves look like eucalyptus leaves, don't they?

This tree is made from paper flower petals, painted with Emerald shimmer paint.  (You may recall I made some shamrocks with these, too.)

I cut them apart and assembled into a tree, directly onto the patterned paper, using craft glue.  Use the glue sparingly, though, so it does not warp the paper beneath (you live, you learn ;).

The punched-star was gilded with Gold shimmer paint, and the tree trunk (a Word Window punch) sports a coat of Chocolate shimmer paint.

Sadly, this is my last post as a DT member of Creative Inspirations Paints.  :-(  I have THOROUGHLY enjoyed being part of the team, and am such a fan of these amazing paints.  With some new work commitments in my life, however, I need to pare down a bit.  Thank you to Kendra for being a terrific DT coordinator, who makes everything wonderful with her great organizational skills and sunny attitude.  :-)

And thank YOU ever so much for joining me here today!
