O Christmas Tree

Melissa's new Merry and Bright stamp set is so much fun! I love being able to customize the trees with different sizes and patterns. I stamped the trees on spring moss cardstock with spring moss ink and then cut them out. I also stamped the stars on lemon tart cardstock and tree trunks on dark chocolate cardstock and cut out the pieces. I tied some pure poppy satin ribbon around my sweet blush card stock, adhered the trees using dimensional adhesive with one tree being directly on the card. Then, I stamped my sentiment directly on my card. After everything was assembled, I added the red stickles to my trees for some sparkle. Very easy card to make and I like how the layers look with the trees overlapping.

Just a quick post tonight because I gotta get the kiddos ready for bed. Hope you're having a great week!

I've seen several cards using the Merry and Bright stamp set; yours has definitely moved me to purchase it. Your card is elegant, yet easy enough to mass produce without feeling the stress of leaving someone out because there wasn't enough time to make more. Thanks so much for the idea!

Very Pretty card. I would never had thought to put a Christmas design on the blush, but I really like it. It's soft but Festive...Thanks for sharing your ideas and talent.
