Festival of Trees …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

So sorry I missed you yesterday … I was not on holiday, but was having technical difficulties, but I’m back and as promised I have the “Good Greetings” and “Festival of Trees” card to share.  Actually, two cards today!

A sweet and simple card for Saturday (now Sunday) that will brighten anyone’s holiday spirit.  I picked  Cherry Cobbler and Almost Artichoke for my color pallet.

The tree I used, one of five in the set is fun to use when you pop that second color in with the coordinating dots!  They even have garland included in this set.  If only decorating our trees at home where this easy!


My background was embossed with the “On Point” embossing folder that is also in the Holiday catalog.  You know … you could use it for a cute Birthday card – just have them pointing as if they were arrows!  Or for those of us from Wisconsin, turn it upside down … Ice cycles falling from our roof!  LOL

My greeting of course is the “Good Greetings” stamp set… Free with a qualifying party of order.  I used the square punch to create the banner ends and then curled them up for a more dramatic look.  A pretty little bow created with the bakers twine completes our first card.

I used the same color pallet and stamp sets as I did for the first card.  I love showing how versatile the stamp sets are, and how different cards can look when just changing up a background.

On this card, I stamped the background with the “Good Greetings” stamp set instead of using the embossing folders.  I think this is a fun, creative way to use your greetings!

I created my focal point on this card with the use of the Oval Framelit dies, it really shows off our floral tree so beautifully.  The trees on both cards were popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I love that extra dimension on a card.


This card was completed by tying a simple bow with the Cherry Cobbler seam binding… it adds a bit more elegance to the card, where the bakers twine fit better on our first card.  Each type of ribbon has a purpose, and I’m so glad we have a wonderful variety to choose from.

Hope you enjoyed today’s showcase of the Good Greetings and Festival of Trees stamp sets.  The Festival of Trees can also be purchased in a bundle, with a coordinating punch!  I love coordinating punches… and Bundles!  Who doesn’t love to save 15%!

Thank you for stopping back …

I hope you have a wonderful day.
