Framed Christmas Tree using Green Sprigs

A big hello you to you!

I thought I would at least sneak in one more Christmas project post before the man in the Big Red Suit arrives!

That way you can either recreate this project in time for Christmas, or get an early start on next years decorating and pick up the Green Sprigs from the Year End Sales before they have all gone!

My project today is CASEd from the cover of our Stampin’ Success Magazine.  That’s our quarterly demonstrator magazine, full of loads of ideas and tips for products and getting the most out of being a demonstrator!

The cover has the image of a mini Christmas Tree using our Green Sprigs available in the current Holiday Catalogue (but not for much longer at all! They are only available until January 2nd, 2018).

This was a fun project to make and was really quite quick to put together.

I have used a now retired Christmas Stamp Set called Wonderful You as I wanted a big sentiment with bold font.  The Stampin’ Success magazine used Carols of Christmas, but you could use any stamp set really.  I also added some of our retired Gold Sequin Trim for a bit of bling.  The larger sequins stood out more than our current Mini Sequin Trim (- although some aren’t visible in the picture). And I simply slipped the sequins over one of the pieces in the Green Sprigs, not adhesive involved.  I also added a double bow using our Real Red 1/8″ Solid Ribbon.  The background sheet is of course a piece of the Merry Music Designer Series Paper, which will also be retiring.  The stick – well thats from my front yard! Lol.

You will definitely need your hot glue gun for this project, to secure the sprigs and the stick.  You will only need one pack of Green Sprigs to create each tree.  I found it easiest to position everything first, then adhere the sprigs, beginning at the base of the tree and work my way up.  The last 3 sprigs are overlaid through the middle to hide any gaps.

CTC 150 – Favourite Bigshot Project from Holiday Catalogue

Welcome to CTC 150 where we are CASEing (Copy and Share Everything) our Favourite Bigshot Project from the Holiday Catalogue!

You may have popped over from Fi or be starting right here, but I encourage you to take the full tour and start getting inspired for Christmas with all the gorgeous projects highlighted!

How difficult a task is choosing your FAVOURITE bigshot project!!!! I mean REALLY!!!! There are so many wonderful bigshot projects in the Holiday Catalogue this season to play with!

For me personally – I was able to narrow it down to my two MOST favourite items – the Trim your Stocking Dies or the Christmas Staircase Dies.  The Christmas Staircase dies won and I created my 3D Framed Christmas Tree.

I love this tree and how it can pop right off the card with those brilliant branch framelit pieces.

CTC150 3D Framed Christmas Tree with Ready for Christmas Bundle

Projects that pop really appeal to me. The more 3D the better 🙂

So I went a little bit beyond a card this time to create a 3D Framed Christmas Tree for some Christmas Decor this year.

CTC 150 3D Framed Christmas Tree using the Ready for Christmas Bundle

I sourced a small polystyrene cone shape and sliced it in half to create this tree.  Of course, you could do a complete one for a decoration or a table centrepiece.

I changed the colour from the card pictured and used regular Whisper White Cardstock and added some smaller branches using our Gold Foil  to add a bit of lift and bling.  and its a bit hard to see in the photo, but I have also wrapped some Gold Metallic thread around the tree to give the appearance of tinsel.

Once I was done cutting ALL the pieces, Im not sure how many white branches I ended up cutting, but it was a lot, but not enough to drive you nuts! Lol. I  layered them on the cone, beginning at the base and working my way up, making sure they overlapped for good coverage. I adhered them only by the top 1/4 of the branch, so I could go back and tuck further branches in as necessary to thicken up the tree.

Once my tree was complete I removed the glass from the frame, cut some Garden Green Paper from the Be Merry Designer Series Paper the same size as the frame, and put it all together.  I did hot glue the tree to the DSP to ensure it wouldn’t fall off!  I pulled out our retired Stars Framelits to get the right size star for the tree.

What do you think???

Now it’s time to pop on over to the wonderful Bronwyn Eastley and see what she has for you all!
