Holiday Trees Altered Frame

Hi Everyone!

Last night I watched an awesome Hero Arts video called "Sparkling Holiday Trees" that was presented by the incredibly talented and humorous Julie Ebersole.  Here's the link to that video

I already have a set of Hero Arts cling Christmas tree stamps and a wooden Memory Box Christmas tree stamp so I didn't need any new tree stamps, but I did purchase the Xyron X sticker maker last night.  That was a great decision.

I used 2 shades of green Memento dye inks to stamp my trees on white tag.  Then I fussy cut them and ran them through the Xyron machine the way Julie explained in her blog.  Instead of creating a card I chose to create an altered frame.  I wish that the glittery trees and snowbanks showed up in my photograph.  In addition to glitter I added tiny rhinestones to the trees.  The letters were cut with a Sizzix die. 

The bottle caps are 3 inch bottle caps from Maya Road. 

Thank you Julie and Hero Arts for the inspiration for this project.

Have a great day!
