Good Morning Everyone,
Karen here to show you how to make a tree from a half circle. I used m ycircle cutter (http://www.justimaginecrafts.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=24_56&products_id=285) to make a 5 inch circle and cut it in half so I can make 2 cards.
Next I used my Scor Pal to measure and draw a straight line at 1 1/4" and I folded it so the back side is on top. Next step take the small top piece that is the back of your paper and make a triangle. Last bring the front paper around.
So the white paper was my top and you see the small triangle, next is the green & white polka dot, which is the back, next the white (top), and last polka dot (back). So you have 3 folds. I kept them down with brads, after punching a hole in the tree where I wanted the brad to go (looks like ornaments).
This is what the card looked like and I will tell you how I assembled it:
I took the Christmas Tree and centered it on embossed piece of cardstock. I added a brown trunk and made 2 holes which I put twine in and tied a bow. I also added a blingy star at the top with the sentiment Merry Christmas. I mounted it on 2 seperate Christmas line papers, then put on my base. I think this was my favorite Christmas Card made all season. I know I could not have made the circle without the Circle Cutter, since punches are not that big.
I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I did.
