Season Greetings- Prima's 12 Days of Christmas Day 2- Finnabair Style

Prima is having a special 12 Days of Christmas Cards/Tags feature on their blog.

Today is day 2 and they are featuring Finnabair's products.

I really wanted to create a christmas tree using the mechanical pieces from the Finnabair collection. I printed a christmas tree template from the internet and then cut it out of Prima packaging. Then I used two other recycled Prima packaging from the Mechanicals collection to build my tag.

 To create the tree I started adding different mechanical pieces onto the template like a mosaic puzzle. I cut certain pieces in half so they could fit properly on the tree. I tried layering metal pieces on top of each other to create depth and heights. Finally I filled in the remaining holes with different sized beads and pearls.

The textured background was created using the Gold Mine Texturez from Shimmerz which you can buy HERE. You can get a sample of it for free if you mention me during checkout when you make a purchase at the Shimmerz Shop.

Now, the exciting part is that you can join in on the fun!! Create a card or tag inspired by any of the designs!!!
You can link your card or tag at the bottom of the posts at the Prima blog. You have until December 1st to enter the contest. Prima will pick 12 Winners!!! isn't that fun???
