I made this tree using the Pop up tree die from the Mini catalog, and Holiday Lounge Designer paper from the big catalog. I used the scalloped circle die with Sahara Sand card stock for the tree skirt, and So Saffron card stock for the star.
I punched holes in the edges of the tree with the 1/16th hole punch after the tree was put together. Then I ran silver cording through the holes to make a simple garland.
To make the tree stand up I punched out 2 of the base pieces and attached one to each side of the tree.
I have been having fun playing with this tree.... hope you enjoy
Have you seen the Christmas tree pop up die in the Mini catalog ( item # 116882 $42.95)? Well it is pretty cool! Want to learn how to put it together before you buy it? I am having a class on this great die.

I am so loving My Digital Studio! I whipped this card up in about 2 minutes! I started with a designer template card, and changed it up a bit! I added and removed a few things to my taste. My favorite thing to do is change the opacity of the colors. I love how it looks!

I am very sorry for being absent for a few days! I had intended to have some great posts ready for you to post while I was away, but I ended up only having a little more than one hour to get ready to leave for my trip! That was not really enough time for me to pack myself, a 2 year old and make sure my 2 oldest boys had all their things....
BUT Jaeden got a deer opening day ( which is why we are back early). He was hunting with his uncle when he got it. He was glad he got it, but didn't want to have to go home, and back to school!
Here are some more pictures from my trip....
We woke up on Saturday morning to a dusting of snow. The boys were so excited! they scrapped as much snow off my car as they could to make a snow man!
It snowed almost a foot on Sunday morning!
Sense Jaeden had his deer he was at camp a little more, and he helped his brothers make this snow man on Sunday!
