The idea for this card came from seeing one of those Christmas tree ornaments made from baubles. It got me thinking how I could make one using circles. Here’s the result! I think this would be a fun card to make with children.
I began by drawing a triangular tree shape on my card top layer. I used a tree stamp but any rough triangular shape will do. Then, after dry embossing a selection of card in Shaded Spruce, Real Red and gold foil, I punched circles of various sizes. If you wanted to use die cut circles, you’d have to cut first then emboss.
The circles were roughly arranged in the tree shape. To help me remember the placement for gluing, I took a quick shot of the layout and then removed the circles to erase the triangle.
I glued all the circles in place, stamped and heat embossed my greeting, mounting it on a layer of Shaded Spruce and a length of Real Red ribbon. To finish, I added a die cut star to the top on foam tape and rhinestones into some of the gaps to resemble fairy lights.
Simple but effective.
