I resisted the urge to put heart buttons all over the tree this time and just let the one stand alone. But it was blue so I had to emboss it with red embossing powder (used the red distress EP by Tim Holtz). I outlined the stitching and tree with a brown watercolor pencil and then went over it with my blending pen. I then added some white with my Marvy opaque pen for snow and snowdrops. Finally, I outlined some of the branches and the bottom with my Zig glue pen so I could add a bit of glitter.
I'm probably the last person on earth to do this, but I was so thrilled with my corner buttons. I circled punched them and then punched two smaller circles in the center to create paper buttons! I was going to thread them with some gold cord, but the cord was too big for the holes and the gold outer layer came off as I was trying to thread it. Turns out I like the twine that was underneath it better anyway, so I threaded the buttons with that.
Well, shamrocks or Easter eggs will be hanging from this tree next!
