Trimming the Tree Happy Holidays Card

 As promised, today's card is the second instalment in a series highlighting the Trimming the Tree stamp set. If you missed yesterday's easy-peasy card, click here. This lovely set (qui est également disponible en françaismay have been overlooked a little, due to being in the Annual Catalogue rather than the holiday mini. However, it's a real gem with lots of possibilities! I actually CASE'd (Copy And Share Everything) this design from page 43 of the Annual Catalogue, then changed the colours to suit my own tastes:



Today's card might look elaborate, but here's all you need: stamps, inks, and paper, plus a little bit of ribbon and a few embellishments. I started by stamping the sentiment onto a scrap of Basic White Cardstock. Everything else is stamped on a 3 1/4" x 4 1/2" Basic White panel. I began by stamping the bucket holding the tree at the very bottom of the panel, using Shaded Spruce ink. Then I stamped the tree in Granny Apple Green, following up with the tree highlights stamp in Shaded Spruce. To create a tree trunk, I used a black marker. The final stamping touches were the garland at the top of the panel, in Real Red and Shaded Spruce.

To assemble the card, I adhered the stamped panel to a 3 3/4" x 5" Granny Apple Green panel to create a card mat. Then I used dimensionals to attach the card mat to a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Shaded Spruce card base. To finish the card, I layered on a small piece of Real Red 3/8" Mini Ruffled Ribbon and then used dimensionals to add the sentiment. Then I placed Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels on the tree like ornaments, and the card was done!

I've got one more Trimming the Tree card up my sleeve, so come back tomorrow for my 3rd and final project in the series! 😊
