I've seen people using the Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Lace Tree, and was really taken with the different images in it. So naturally I had to paint it. I used a needle nose plastic bottle to apply the glue for the glitter. The Lace Tree was trimmed with scissors and mounted with glue dots. The Stickles glitter glue and the pearls were applied just before the bow was done. The bow at the top of the tree was done using the Martha Stewart method.
The ribbon up the side was done using the Japanese Stab Binding technique as shown below. I only did the cardfront and not the inside folded card. You may get a better idea of what I did by reading this Bibliophile I was able to find. Please keep in mind I only did the top cardfront layer. Supplies:
- Neenah Paper Classic Crest Solar White Super Smooth 80 lb. cardstock - 4.25X5.5 and 5.5X11
- Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Lace Tree
- Twinkling H2O's Jasper Red and Sweet Alfalfa applied with a Niji waterbrush

- Neenah Paper Classic Laid Solar White 80 lb. Cover cardstock - 4.25X5.5
