Yesterday I shared a card that I created using up some of my larger pieces of scraps from the Holiday Retreat cutting … now I have a leftover gold Christmas tree! So what else would I do but use it on my next card!! Today I have that card for you …
Besides my Christmas tree, I had the squares left over as well which I layered onto a gold background to pull the gold out of the Wrapped in Plaid Designer paper. Since I wanted the tree to be my focal point of my card, I added a piece of Vellum Cardstock cut from the Stitched Framelits Dies. I then embossed my Christmas tree with the Country Floral embossing folder.
The base of my card is Shaded Spruce which coordinates with the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Paper, to create a dramatic contrast I added a piece of Cherry Cobbler behind the gold. I embossed the ends of the Cherry Cobbler with the Country Floral embossing folder as well to add some texture and to coordinate with my tree.
The greeting comes from the beautiful Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set from the Brightly Gleaming Suite in the Holiday Catalog.
A simple card really … just some layers to create an elegant look and feel. I love the way it turned out. Hmmm … who would know this card was created from scraps!! The secrets our stamp rooms keep. lol
Thank you for joining me today!
I hope you take a moment to enjoy this beautiful fall day.

Today I have a cute little card that I created out of some of the scraps I have left over from cutting my retreat cards / projects. One of the suites we will be using at the Holiday Stamping Retreat is the Wrapped in Plaid product suite, so on today’s card I grabbed the Tree punch and that awesome Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series paper.
I needed a base for my card so what is quicker than the using the Gold Edged-Foil and Envelopes … and the gold trim is already on there to enhance the gold strips in the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series paper so it’s the perfect choice. Once the Wrapped in Plaid Designer paper was attached, I die cut a circle and punched the tree into it.
Can I give you a tip? … Punch the tree first and then die cut the circle around the tree … MUCH easier (just saying). lol
I wanted to carry out the gold into the greeting so I found a scrap piece of gold foil, then stamped on a piece of Vellum Cardstock. I used Shady Spruce ink and the beautiful “Hostess” stamp set … Greatest Part of Christmas. I really love this beautiful set of words and verses. It is a Hostess set so you will need to make a purchase to qualify for rewards or host a stampin’ show. We could do one, in home, my home, on-line or a book party.
This quick -n- cute card will share your feelings of “thinking of them” at Christmas time. Hope you enjoyed the card.
Thank you and have a wonderful day ~
TODAY’S STAMPING SUPPLY LIST … I have shared the link that includes the entire product suite and each item individually. Thank you!
The perfect way to make your Christmas season merry and bright is by adding a little bit of plaid and a whole lot of cheer! You can do both with the Wrapped in Plaid Suite, and you’ll love the amount of charm it can add to your projects.
But you get a lot more than plaid in this suite, and all of our samples above feature what comes with it. Whether it’s the cute bell embellishments, or the Gold Mini Pizza Boxes, or even the pages and pages of our specialty designer series paper (which features more patterns than plaid!), you will love everything that makes this suite ready to help you bring in Christmas. And the Pine Tree Punch is perfect for any season, so it’s a must-have for any collection.
