Holiday “Smiles & Love” Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Did you ever have one of those days when you knew excactly how you wanted to make your card … Blackberry Bliss and Silver embossed with the Stylish Scrool embossing folder! Is that what came out of my stamping studio??? NOPE!! lol

But what I did create … I fell in love with! Still using the Perfectly Plaid bundle, I kept the Blackberry Bliss as my base, I added a Whisper White front that I embossed with the Subtle embossing folder, I like that “subtle” touch of texture it adds to the card.

Next I punched out two trees out of the Blackberry Bliss cardstock and tucked them into the lower right-hand corner of my card.  I wanted a different layout for this card (I usually tuck my greetings in the center or the bottom right-hand corner) but I wanted more than just stamping … So, I stamped my “Smiles & Love” greeting from the Greatest Part Of Christmas Host Cling Stamp and cut it our from the Stitched Rectangle dies and added a Blackberry Bliss mat also cut from the Stitched Rectangle dies.

I popped that up with the Stampin’ Dimensionals and new it was time for my “tree” … I stamped the plaid tree and punched it out. This would be the focal point of my trio of trees, and I popped it up with dimensionals as well to bring it up to the greeting.  To top it off and add a little bling, I added the Holiday Rhinestones Basic Jewels on the top of the tree and on each side of my greeting!

The tree stamp is one of the “distinktive” stamps so you have to be sure that your ink pad is not too juicy!  You just need a think layer of ink to really turn it into the perfect tree.

Thank you so very much for stopping by today … tomorrow I will be sharing “Attendee Swap” cards.

Stay warm and have a wonderful day … It’s only 18° here now with a high of 25°!
