Merry Christmas Tree

I'm back with the final card from the August Make and Take. This one is a quick and pretty Christmas card that combines Blackberry Bliss with Old Olive instead of the traditional red and green.

  • Crumb Cake card stock 4-1/4" x 11", scored at 5-1/2"
  • Very Vanilla card stock 3-3/4" x 5-1/2"
  • Sweet Taffy DSP 3-5/8" x 5-1/2"
  • Mellow Moss card stock 2-3/8" x 4-3/8"
  • Very Vanilla card stock 2-1/4" x 4-1/4"
  • Blackberry Bliss Ribbon 18"
  • Stamps: Evergreen, Really Good Greetings
  • Ink: Blackberry Bliss, Baked Brown Sugar, Versamark
  • Accessories: Gold embossing powder, Embossing Buddy, Heat Tool, Champagne Glimmer Paper, Star punch, Stampin' Dimensionals

For this lovely Christmas card start off by folding the Crumb Cake card stock on the score line. Use Glue stick to adhere the Sweet Taffy DSP onto the large piece of Very Vanilla card stock. Then glue this onto the card front with more glue stick.

Now take the small piece of Very Vanilla card stock and stamp the filled in tree image from Evergreen onto the top portion of the card stock in Baked Brown Sugar ink. Rub the Embossing Buddy all over the card stock then stamp the line image of the tree in Versamark ink right on top of  the Baked Brown Sugar tree. Cover the stamped image with Gold embossing powder, tap off the excess and heat it with your Heat Tool.

Next stamp the greeting from Really Good Greetings onto the bottom of the tree panel in Blackberry Bliss ink. Use glue stick to adhere this layer onto the Mellow Moss card stock. Wrap the Blackberry Bliss ribbon around the panel and tie it into a knot. Then Stick this down onto the card front with a few Stampin' Dimensionals. Use the star punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack on a piece of Champagne Glimmer Paper. Glue the star onto the top of the tree and your card front is finished.

To dress up the inside stamp just the line image of the tree in Baked Brown Sugar ink and punch out another glimmery star to glue onto the top. 

Now you have a quick and easy Christmas card all done and ready for next Christmas!
