Oh Tinsel Tree, Oh Tinsel Tree

We're still creating cards inspired by the DIY Tinsel Tree Tutorial at White House Crafts.

Here's how we were inspired this week:

Lauren says, "This week I took inspiration from the color palette (though I've inverted the proportions); from the circle shapes of the baubles, and the different shiny/matte/sparkly surfaces. I've used a fabulous Simon Says Stamp Ring Wreath Die that Stephanie gave me and inset the circles with pink, blue, silver and gold specialty papers ; then I added a large script sentiment and finished off with several colors and sizes of Eyelet Outlet Pearl Brads."

Stephanie says, "I wanted to recreate the feel of the tinsel with paper.  I used fringe scissors from my stash (that I've had forever, and I'm not sure that I've ever actually used them) on silver glitter paper.  I attached the *tinsel* to a Gel Press print from my stash that includes the colors from the tree, including an ethereal silver layer on top.  I added a wrap of one of my favorite ribbons to pull in the pink.  I matted it on a matte gold card base to pull in that color from the image.  I finished with a negative Savvy Stamps sentiment in that same glorious pink."
