Silver Scallop Tree

The idea for folding half a circle (or scalloped circle, in this case) into a tree has been around for awhile. It seems to have made a resurgence this year, and I finally tried it! My only trouble is I kept over-thinking it! Ha! This was a November Club project.

The tree trunk is Smoky Slate Chevron ribbon. It's kind of hard to see in this picture, but the white background is textured with the Stylish Stripes embossing folder. Brushed Silver cardstock adds a little shine to the card, and we used the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack to add piercing around it. This pack is part of the Holiday Sale (see link in sidebar) -----> and is a GREAT deal right now at $5.96!
