Lovely as a Tree – FMS209

By | October 24, 2015

Happy Saturday and welcome to the weekend. I’m sitting out on the closed in sun porch and it’s not so sunny, the rain has started and I can feel a cool breeze. The breeze is ok because I can also smell the big pot of homemade spaghetti sauce simmering on the stove. With rain in the forecast thought it would be a great day for homemade spaghetti, salad and garlic bread, might even open a bottle of wine to enjoy. Now on to some card making.

Today’s card is for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge, check you their blog here. I love the clean simple design of this card, so many options to pick from, what should I choose?

FMS Final 209-001

For my card I decided to break out one of the most famous Stampin Up stamp sets – Lovely as a Tree, a most have in every craft room. The evergreen tree from the set is Silver heat embossed on Whisper White and the word Christmas is from the Holly Jolly Greeting stamp set. The Whisper White piece has a mat of Basic Black for a classic, elegant design, dimensionals back this piece before attaching to the card base. The base of my card is a piece of Whisper White paper cut at 4.25″ x 11″ and folded at 5.5″ for a top folding card.  I decided on Real Red to die cut the word Merry from the Christmas Greetings Thinlits and adhere with some liquid glue. The Holly Jolly Greeting stamp set and Christmas Greeting Thinlits can be purchased together as a bundle for 15% off.  To finish off the card, I added some rhinestones randomly for the holiday glitz on the card.
