Before I do anything, I want to wish my dear friend Margie (Bellabug) a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I'm thinkin she'll be asleep before I post this so she won't see it until tomorrow (March 31) which is the BIG DAY! Have the best birthday ever and win, win, WIN BIG at the casino WOOHOO!!!, don't get too tipsy, and stay away from pay per view. LOL Love you, girlfriend! Be sure to wish her a happy day.
Okay, so this week at Bah! Humbug! the challenge is Christmas trees. I wanted to do something different so I decided to do a 3D project. I'd been playing with the Stampin' Up Petal Cone die (thanks Lillie) and turned it upside down. It sort of reminded me of a tree and wondered if I stacked them how it would look. I embossed the cones with the Stampin' Up Elegant Lines folder and cut the scalloped portions of the die in red. I think the clean red and white looks kind of Scandanavian to me. (I'm half Swedish).
To stack the cones I cut circles with my Nesties that would fit inside the cones. This one for the top cone,
and this for the bottom. The base is a ribbon spool that has been covered in card stock, also with my Nesties and the trunk is just a rolled piece of regular copy paper. For a first try I don't think it turned out half bad. I think I'll be playing with this again.
