Hello Stampin’ Friends,
Welcome to a brand new week! Yesterday I shared a “glitzy” Christmas card so today I’d like to share a card inspired by one of my Christmas trees that I decorated in the past. I did a nature inspired tree with raffia, cardinals and stars.
The card reflects the tree in many ways, the colors are warm and inviting … Crumb Cake, Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler. I used the linen thread to reflect the raffia on the tree.
To pull the cherry color in I used the Basic Pearls and colored them with the new Blendabilities “Cherry Cobbler” collection. I color them while they are still on the paper and then transfer them to my card.
I created a focal point by highlighting the tree with a “Crumb Cake” oval. I used dimensionals to pop it up and create added dimension to the card.
I even brought the stars in with the use of the “Trim the Tree” paper stack. I love those paper packs … when I cut down the paper to the desired size (usually 5-1/4″ x 4″) I use the left over pieces to decorate the inside of the card and my envelope. I love it when everything coordinates … one of the things that drew me to Stampin’ Up!
The sweet “Merry Christmas” greeting is from the “Good Greeting” Hostess stamp set … which you can get for FREE when you host a $300 stampin’ party. That is in addition to the Hostess benefits you already get.
