Stampin' Up! Whimsical Trees

Hello my crafty friends and welcome to my blog.

And welcome back to another Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. I hope you enjoy my project with this month's theme - Pick a Season.

Hmmmm, can you guess my season! 😆 Actually, here in Australia, Christmas is in the Summer time! So this is my green Christmas Tree forest. It reminds me of the Christmas tree farms that sell the trees. As we are coming into summer, I thought it appropriate. Plus, I had Christmas on my mind as I participated in the Whimsy & Wonder stamp camp last weekend with a great bunch of ladies and this tree stamp from the Suite, would not get out of my head - so here it is! This card is inspired by Sara Sayers - UK Demo. I have stamped off (or 2nd generation stamping) to make the lighter shade. Added some of the Specialty DSP (also from the Suite), tied a double bow using the Simply Elegant Trim in silver and the sentiment I cut out the 'Christmas Cheer' from the Whimsical Trees stamp set. The actual sentiment is 4 lines. I also added the white scallop from Scalloped Contours Dies.

I couldn't resist and added some wink of stella to the darker stamped tree with the rhinestone (not that you can see it). To adhere the silver trim, I used a mini glue dot. I added the shaded spruce strip to neaten things up and raised the sentiment by cutting a small sliver of the edge of a dimensional sheet. That basic white sentiment piece is just under 0.5cm. Everything except the sentiment is adhere directly to the card base.
