Of Christmas
Buttons and ribbons were the items to be used for this weeks theme. What would us crafters do without them???
I thought I would use them to decorate a Christmas tree - with a contemporary feel. It's a great design to use up all your leftover bits of card. The stamping add a bit of texture to the strips

For the background I've used the Kaisercraft Diamonds stamp with mica powders in gold and copper for a natural look and I've stamped the tree strips with one of the stamps from the Edges set.
There are so many possibilities for the background with this design!! and just think how many trees you can make from colouring one panel of card!

 With a little bit of doodling around the edge to finish off and there you have it!!
Okay so now you've got the idea why not pop over to the Craft Barn Blog for the full "how to" details
