Merry Trees


Hello!  I'm back today with another Christmas card.  Usually by the time Christmas comes and goes I want a long break from holiday cards but for now the ideas are flowing so I'm going with it.

I started this card by using the layout from Freshly Made Sketches.  I then took inspiration from the colours and the trees over at The Heart Desires challenge.  I paired up Reverse Confetti tree and sentiment dies with these fun Fancy Pants papers that I've been hoarding for far too long.  I framed the trees with a cool dotted square die from Lil' Inker Designs.  The middle tree is popped up on foam tape and the Merry is covered with a nice thick coat of Glossy Accents.  Love it!





Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Patterned Papers:  (Happy Holiday 8x8) Fancy Pants
Stamps:  (Christmas from Winter Words Coordinates) Reverse Confetti
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Trees, Merry) Reverse Confetti, (Dotted Square) Lil' Inker Designs
Gems:  Recollections
Other:  (Glossy Accents) Ranger

Good on you, I wish I could make Chrissy cards all year round, but I usually struggle with it too. Great use of design paper too!
