Tips & Tricks to make the project:
Cut a 6x6 piece of card stock for your project and fold in half.
Stamp your background stamp first. The white ink will take a while to dry so you can put that aside while you work the other pieces of the card.
Find a something in your home that already has a curve in it. I just happen to have an old stencil that I used to trace the curve. You could always to it free form, but it helps if you have something to work with.
Using your markers color in the sentiment.
Cut strips of designer paper and early espresso for the trunk.
Die cut your star. If you have an old or non-Stampin' Up! star punch, feel free to use it for the project. You can always subsititue the star for a button as well.
Attach the star with dimensionals.
Attach pearls to the project with your paper snips or tweezers.
