Advent tree

Hi there thanks for visiting
Made this for jill challenge at docrafts, I have wanted to make one of these trees for ages and thought I would give it a go.Took me ages to get the dimensions as I wanted them, but finally settled on the boxes being 2x2 so needed to start with 6x6.
I used my ultimate pro, boxer board and mini clever cut, I would not even have attempted it without these essential tools.

It's a bit of a vintage tree as a lot of the products used I have had for years, used gold centura pearl,docrafts gold christmas vellum pack,docrafts star brads (think they were in one of the scrapbook goodie boxes they used to do and the little number stamps  again docrafts from an old christmas alphabet see-dees love these little stamps my mum bought me a large set of them many many moons ago.
I have embossed the star shape from the ultimate and used a dotty embossing folder finally added some gold ribbon Thanks for looking angxx

Accordion style card

http://joannasheenchallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2013/06/dont-be-square.htmlHi there thanks for visiting
Saw some cards similar in blog land did a bit of searching and discovered they were made with a bigz die. Now I do not have the set of 2 dies,so had a play cutting up bits of paper and getting into a sticky mess, but this is what I came up with.http://craftybootschallenges.blogspot.co.uk/2013/06/anything-but-square.html

Fabbie picked as card of the month crafters companion and also picked as a cupcake cutie
 now here is what I did.
I used the shape on my ultimate board by crafters companion. For this card I cut 4 of the shapes leaving a small lip down the edge of 3 pieces so I could join the shapes together also cut out the inside.  Once I had decorated the frames I joined the inner sections together with small strips of card.I attached only the 2 outside inner shapes to the frame with ribbon. Sorry I know this doesn't make much sense.
I used cordinations and papermania paper,angelica image ,tag and greeting from inspiration paper pack,crafts too flourish die and craft work cards flowers and candi.
Whoooo it took abit of making and I hadn't planned on a no 2 but have already started on it
