# Build a Christmas Tree # Feathered Friends

Joy to the World by Julie Lavalette


Hi Everyone, it's JULIE here and today I am sharing with you my latest Festive card making a Christmas Wreath for my sweet little Robin to sit on.


I started by matting and layering my first few chosen layers, adding Stickles and Distress ink around the edges. You will also notice on my top layer I highlighted all the pierced holes with a red Fine Liner Pen and scattered some Frantage embossing Powder for a snowy effect.


My Wreath was cut out 3 times and my base layer was cut in half and slightly offset to give 
the illusion of more foliage gluing another layer on top. For my final layer I added heat set Mistletoe coloured embossing powder onto the foliage.  This gave it added sparkle and detail.


My robin was shaded with Distress Inks and some Black Liquid Pearls added to his eye. My Candy Canes are from the Build a Tree set.  I die cut them in White cardstock and added some red with a Fine Liner Pen.


My wording was heat embossed with Red Tinsel and offset onto Green Card Stock for a shadow effect.


Finishing off with my Pretty Bow.
