Art-To-Go Printer's Tray - Christmas Joy


This is the Christmas version I made for my Art-To-Go Printer's Tray series. 

I had so much fun making the 3D tree in the bottom left hand corner of my Christmas tray that I used the same technique on this card. 


The idea for this tree came from the fact that I couldn’t follow the directions for a different 3D tree!  This tree is relatively quick to make when you use the Big Shot and a punch to cut your scallop circles.
 
For this tree, I used the following dies and punch. 

Scallop Circle Die (113468)
Scallop Circle #2 Die (113469) I used the largest circle
2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch (118874) 


Cut one of each scallop circle and then cut each one in half.  Because you cut all three pieces in half, you’ll get two trees from the three circles!  I embossed the half circles using my Big Shot (113439) and the Final Press embossing folder (115963).  Then I used a dauber to add Frost White Shimmering Ink (116854) to the paper.  


Form a cone with the first circle and glue in place by overlapping one scallop as shown here.  Repeat with the other two half circles.
 

Press the cones until they are almost flat.  Then glue one to the other as shown here.
 
When you have all three parts glued together, you have your tree.  I added the bird from the Merry Details Sizzlit (116823).
 
For the card, the tag is made with the following items.

Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set (115370)
Modern Label Punch (119849)
Tags til Christmas Stamp Set (121169)
Decorative Label Punch  (120907)
