I've set a goal for myself of having a new holiday-themed project to share with you every Monday until just before New Year's, for a total of 20 projects. Here's this week's:
Even though this card uses 3 stamp sets, it's really simple to make! I've CASE'd it from Paula Dobson. Yes, it's got the evergreen tree from Thoughtful Branches...which is still available to order. I continue to use it more than any other set I own.
The fun and vibrant red stripe border is from a great little "sleeper" set in the Annual Catalog, Playful Backgrounds. The rest of the card is so neat and clean, it's fun to have the slightly messy stripes as an accent.
The sentiment is from the returning Wondrous Wreath set. It's so easy to get caught up in the great new items in the Holiday Catalog and to forget the items in the Annual Catalog...I'm glad Paula added it here.
For embellishment, a piece of ⅜" Stitched Satin Ribbon was wrapped around the Whisper White Panel, and another piece tied into a bow and added with Glue Dots. An Enamel Shapes Regals (Crushed Curry) star was added to the top of the tree.
This card is so quick, easy and mailable it wouldn't surprise me if it makes the cut for my Christmas Stamp-A-Stack later this fall!
I've been paper-crafting since 2006, and an Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator since 2010. I love sharing my craft with others, either through classes or by creating special cards and gifts that meet their needs. Join me in creating fun!
