Oh Christmas Trees, Oh Festival of Trees!

Well a great time was had by all at my Christmas Catalogue Launch Parties on Saturday. There was so much to see and talk about and the excitement was Manic! All good though!

The 'Festival of Trees' Bundle, Stamp Set and matching 'Tree Punch', were the heroes of the day and 'Bright and Beautiful' Stamp Set with matching 'Star Dies' came in a close second!
I love the ease of creating with these products because all hand cutting is eliminated! The Tree Punch and Star Dies were 'must have' items for me and they will get a good workout making all my Gifts Tags too!

MY STYLE TIPS:
I've used the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder for 'Snow' which matches prettily with the Icicles just peeking out on the 'Trim the Tree' DSP underneath.
  • I punched two Trees with the Tree Punch, one from Champagne Glimmer Paper and one I stamped with Brown Sugar Ink on white, and trimmed the Brown Sugar Tree down and adhered over the Glimmer Paper one.
  • The Star was Die Cut from the Star Dies and popped up with a Stampin' Dimensional (foam dot).
  • I wrapped Gold Metallic Bakers Twine three times around the main card piece, adhered it on the back, then sat that piece up with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • The Greeting was stamped in Real Red Ink and punched out with the Modern Label Punch, which I also punched one out in Real Red Card Stock, cut it in half horizontally, and glued to the back of the Greeting to give a border, then sat up with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I hope you've enjoyed today's Card.
