Under the Tree

This card uses the Under the Tree designer paper and the Festival of Trees stamp set.
The base of the card is Garden Green card stock. The tree was stamped with Garden Green and the ornaments on the tree were stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink.
I punched a 2 1/2" circle in the Cherry Cobbler Under the Tree designer paper.
I added a pointed banner to the top and a linen thread bow was added to the banner.
I stamped "a Merry little wish…." and added that to the front of the card. I added a piece of white cardstock to the inside of the card and stamped another tree and greeting for the inside.

Christmas Stars

This is another card we made at this month's Christmas Stamp-a-Stack. We used the Under the Tree designer paper — I cut out stars using the Stars Collection Thinlits and popped them up on dimensionals. The card base is Cherry Cobbler with a layer of Garden Green. The Be Merry is from the Holiday Invitation stamp set.

Nutcracker Merry Christmas

Have you seen the Santa Stache stamp set in the Holiday Catalog.  The first time I saw this set it kind of "creeped" me out.  I'm not fond of nutcrackers — I have a nephew who collects them — but I find them a little scary.  I didn't order this stamp set right away but I kept looking at it.  I saw a few samples and the Santa is kind of cute so I ordered it.  I started using the nutcracker image and am finding I like it.  I love cutting out the mustache with the mustache framelit and popping it up on dimensionals for a 3-D look.

NutcrackerThis card was made at this month's Christmas Stamp-a-Stack class.  The class featured the Under the Tree designer paper.  This piece gave me my base color– Early Espresso.  I colored the nutcracker with Cherry Cobbler and Daffodil Delight Blendabilities so I added small layers of each cardstock to blend it all together.  I am very happy with the way this card turned out.  I hope you enjoy it too.
