Oh Christmas Tree (Frosted Designs)

This week, our new challenge begins at Frosted Designs.  It is a 2 part challenge, using doilies and following the sketch below:

You have 2 weeks to create and link up your project on the side bar at the Frosted Designs Blog.

I used a phrase from Winter Frolic for my title.  I sized Oh Christmas Tree at 1.35 inches.

I chose two shades of green cardstock for the cuts.  I adhered the C R S M S onto the title.

I wanted the title to stand out a bit, so I cut out a tag to adhere it onto.

I found this tag on CTMH Artiste and sized it to 1.59 inches.  I cut out two tags since the paper I used was thin. 

I adhered the two tags together, then adhered the title on top.

I used my Tim Holtz distress marker (Barn Door) to ink the edges.

I cut these ornament borders from Winter Frolic at 1.47 inches.

I ended up cutting out two each in red, green and gold metallic cardstock.

I trimmed 1/8 inch off of each edge of my music cardstock to create a border behind it.  I kept one of the strips and adhered the ornament borders onto it.  I overlapped the ornaments to add interest.

I adhered this strip down on my layout under the pictures.

I adhered the ric rac ribbon on top of the border strip.  This give me an ornament banner.

This quote was on the bottom of the music cardstock - the 1/2 inch that has the bar code that you typically cut off and throw away.  I trimmed it out, inked the edges red and created a border with a scrap of green cardstock.

I started out making my own doilies out of cardstock, but then I found these red doilies.  They are leftover heart shaped doilies from Valentine's Day.  I really like the red color!  I trimmed them and positioned the doilies to look like circles.

I adhered the title on top of the photo.  It may be hard to see in the pictures, but the song printed on the cardstock is Oh Christmas Tree - how perfect for my layout!!!

I also loved the cardinal in the bottom corner so I made sure not to cover much of him up.

We have at least 3 trees every Christmas.  This tree is our live tree.  I love that Tanner is on Mike's shoulders in order to reach the top of the tree!!  Tanner decorated the entire tree this year :)

Don't forget to dig out some of your doilies and create a layout based on the sketch!  Join us at Frosted Designs!!
