Lovely as a Tree with Star of Light Faux Leather

I still have a few faux leather elements left over from my experiment earlier in the week and I thought I could make one of them into a Christmas card.  I’m not sure it was a success, but this is what came out of my designer brain after eating turkey earlier today.

First I have to say – yes, I used a retired framelit to cut my piece of fun foam (Apothecary Accents) and I used a retired paper-piercing template that coordinates with the framelit.  When I cut my piece of fun foam I did not allow for a large enough piece to cut with any of the oval framelits.  I would either lose some trees off the ends or the arcs of the ovals at the top and bottom.  As my Grandpa Chapman would say – one should “measure twice, cut once”!

I added clear Wink of Stella to the trees.  I used one of the silver foil snowflakes which I cut in half and attached with liquid glue to the top left and bottom right corners.  The faux leather element is attached to the card front with dimensionals.

Here are the Stampin’ Up! products that I used in the design of this card which can quickly be added to your shopping cart by clicking on the thumbnails below:
