Stampin'up-Festival of Trees

Hi Everyone
Today we have the first of this year's Christmas cards. Time is passing so quickly.
For these cards I have used Stampin'up new Festival of Trees stamp set and matching tree punch


The first card is gatefold style and uses cherry cobbler and white card. The two front and the inside centre panel are covered in coordinating papers. Ovals have been die cut from cherry cobbler and white card and a second smaller oval from white card. The smaller oval has been stamped with a sentiment from Endless wishes and embossed in cherry powder, then matted on to the cherry cobbler oval and attached centrally to the card front. The larger white oval has been stamped with the trees and the sentiment from festival of trees, using olive ink, and attached to the inside panel. Two trees have been stamped on white card with olive ink, embossed with dots, one in silver and one in cherry, punched out, and attached to the card front, one taped flat and the other with dimensionals. Three rhinestones have been added to each corner, a star to the top of one tree, and the ovals outlined with dazzling details. The raised tree has then been coated with crystal effects.

The second card is in Mossy meadow. First stamp three trees on mossy meadow card using versamark ink and emboss with gumball powder. Punch out and set aside. Using the punched negative as a stencil, and meadow ink, sponge several tree shapes on to moonlight paper. Emboss in dots folder. Mat this on to slightly larger brushed gold card. Die cut the edge of gold foiled vellum using finishing touches edgelits and tape to card front. Add the tree panel with dimensionals.    Stamp and gold emboss the sentiment and punch out with word window. Attach with dimensionals. Tie twine through a snowflake embellishment which has been coloured with alcohol marker and add to top left corner. Attach two of the punched trees flat, and raise the third one above. Coat the upper tree with crystal effects, and add rhinestones in a random pattern. A stamped insert has been added.
A couple of ideas to get you started.
Till next time - keep happy crafting
