Faux Vintage Rule Christmas Tree

Remember my Father's Day shadow box where I created faux wood rulers using Tim Holtz's Rulers Texture Fade? Today I'm sharing this cute little Christmas decor piece over on the Sizzix blog using the same technique, but it a very different way.  It's a very quick and easy Christmas project that could be used in lots of different ways - I think it would be adorable on the front of a tag or a card!

  4. I just love this! I bought the texture fade when you made the shadow box for Fathers Day. I think this I can get done before Christmas. Thanks Shelly.

  5. Brilliant idea and fabulous design.

  6. Love this card, it would be a really good card to send an older single man for Christmas, they don't like fussy, snowy cards, thanks for sharing!

  7. LOVE this, Shelly - so totally cool. Those faux rulers look like the real thing. I wouldn't have know the difference without being told. Such a fun project.


  8. I've seen these trees in 3d, but yours is better! Gorgeous!
