Oh Christmas Tree

Today we met for a Specialty Christmas Card Class.  This is just one of the three cards that we made.  This is one is quite elegant.  Here are some of the details...
Card Stock:  Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Basic Black
Paper:  Newsprint Specialty Paper, Silver Glimmer Paper
Ink:  Craft Black
Misc:  Northern Flurry Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Modern Label Punch, Word Window Punch, Stars #2 Die, Clear Embossing Powder
Paper Folding:  Cut the four squares measuring 3", 2 1/2", 2" and 1 1/2" from the Newsprint DSP
With the right side down, fold diagonally corner to corner forming a triangle.  Unfold and repeat the other way.  Then fold in half forming a rectangle both ways.  Use a bone folder to get crisp creases.  Unfold.  Fold paper in  half by creasing the diagonal folds and pushing the half fold towards the center.  This creates another triangle.  Then fold the two front flaps forward towards the center making sure they meet in the middle directly under the peak.  Repeat for all 4 squares.  If you start with the smallest one, place the next tip inside the pocket of the previous one until all are assembled.  Add a stem and a star. 

Thanks for looking and come again!
