I made this card a while ago, and where I usually make just one design for Christmas, this was an exception...
I had seen a few stitched tree cards around, so I lightly pencilled a tree shape onto the card base, pricked holes down either side with a paper piercer, and stitched... and only when I reached the end did I realise that I hadn't counted the holes, but thankfully it all worked out!
I added red (with gold) french knots to the purple tree shape, and did some needle weaving to form the 'tub' for the tree to sit in
The tree was topped with a stitched star, I added a thread of gold to that too, along with the pearle, for some more sparkle.
The sentiment (a magazine freebie) was stamped and embossed in in deep green, and the panel was mounted over a green base.
