I turned the sketch on its side and featured a pretty embossed Christmas tree. You can’t tell very well, but the ornaments and the base of the tree is embossed in gold. Very pretty and shiny! And this gives me an excuse to use my pretty Winter Wonderland Vellum stack.

Forrest of Trees

Today’s card features of forrest of Christmas trees. I went a little crazy with the Tree Punch and Star Punch and then found a design example and incorporated both. Perfect combo! My favorite party is the sparkly silver twine under the stars. Hard to see in the picture, but it really shines.IMG_6011

Christmas Tree Tag

Today’s card is being featured on Stylin’ Stampin’ Inkspiration. The challenge was to create a Christmas tag. I decided to layer some vellum on top of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. From there I added a simple stamped and punch tree and a sentiment. As a last touch, I had to decorate my tree with some Gold Glitz Dazzling Details. For my tag attachment, I made some ribbon using washi tape.

I made two tags. The second tag I turned into a card.IMG_6030

Another fun card featuring Festival of Trees and Seasonal Snapshot 2015. I was just about to glue this card down but realized I was missing a few elements. I quickly embossed the strip of Mossy Meadow to give the card some texture. Lastly, I added the tree silhouettes to the circle sentiment to help fill the white space. Perfect!

This is such a great Christmas card! I love the play of textures and pattern. The star embossing folder always gets lost in the bin. Thankfully I pulled it out to use for my Christmas cards. The trick to this card was to emboss only the top 2/3 of the card. From there I added some great patterned paper and punched tree. Fairly simple, but such a great card.

30 Days of Christmas Cards Day 7

A fun tree-filled card for today. (Yeah I’m still using the Festival of Trees stamp set!) I stacked a few trees to one side and a large sentiment on the right side. This really is one of my favorite cards that I’ve made this month. Country is not a style that I gravitate towards, but I’m loving it for this card!

A couple of variations for the stack.

A fairly simple card, but sometimes simple cards are the best! I added the “snow” using a pencil eraser and craft white ink. I love the random flakes. A few simple trees and a sentiment completes the card.

For today’s card, I’m again using the awesome retired Festival of Prints paper stack. I decided to run with some diagonal paper strips to create my background. Apparently I’m really digging my Festival of Trees stamp set lately… Prepare to see it for a few more days. IMG_5490

Two variations of a nice clean design today. I always forget that I own this stars confetti punch. I love the look of having the Old Olive paper peek through. Beyond the stars, I went very clean with a simple palette. I’m a huge fan of these cards.
