O Christmas Tree - Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek

Here's another look at the Santa's Sleigh Framelits Dies....this time it's the evergreen tree. I had leftovers from this card laying on my desk (yes, it is a VERY messy desk, most of the time!), and had cut the tree for another card, which I ended up not using. When I flipped the Warmth & Cheer DSP over, I saw the reverse was really a cute knit print, and it looked great with the leftover Cable Knit embossed piece. Since I sometimes like to use non-traditional colors for Christmas, I figured the Rich Razzleberry grosgrain ribbon from the 3/8" Ribbon Trio might look nice.....and, wonder of wonders, it did!

To keep it fairly clean and simple, I stamped O Christmas Tree using the Labeler Alphabet stamp set. I love that there are actually two whole alphabets (with some duplicate letters) in there - one with a solid background, and one without. I can make any greeting I want!

Here's the "How To"
 Tree: Garden Green 2-3/8" x 4"
 Greeting: Whisper White 5/16" x 3-1/16"
 Cable Knit embossed: Whisper White Thick 1-3/4" x 5-3/16"
 DSP: Warmth & Cheer 2-1/2" x 5-3/16"
 Mat: Whisper White 4-1/8" x 5-3/8"
 Card base: Rich Razzleberry 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", scored and folded at 4-1/4"
  1. Emboss Whisper White Thick cardstock with Cable Knit folder (check the helpful hints in the instructions that came with it).
  2. Adhere DSP to back of embossed piece, overlapping a scant 1/2". Wrap ribbon around, just covering seam and fasten ends to back.
  3. Adhere to Whisper White mat, and then to card base.
  4. Stamp tree from Santa's Sleigh stamp set using Garden Green ink on the Garden Green cardstock. Die cut then attach to left side of card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  5. Stamp greeting and attach to lower right using Dimensionals.
  6. Tie a bow and attach with Glue Dots.
