12 Weeks of Christmas - Week 4

This week I thought I would share one of the cards we will be making for my Stamp A Stack this weekend. For as long as I have been a demonstrator the Lovely As A Tree stamp set has always been in the catalog (5 years).  I think this is a favorite for everyone! I have to apologize as the "be merry" stamp is retired, however it just completed the card perfectly and I didn't have anything else that look quite as good. To create the backdrop image I created a square template and sponged with white craft ink inside. I also stamped the row of trees in white craft ink before moving the template so that it would appear only in the same square. Once this was dry I stamped the tall pine tree using the Garden Green & Chocolate Chip Markers. I stamped the sentiment (you could stamp any occasion), punched the circle and attached to top. I added the the jumbo eyelet using the Crop-A-Dile and tied a piece of the Cherry Cobbler 1/2" Seam Binding through the eyelet. Then I assembled the rest of the layers to the card. Simple yet beautiful and completely transformable for any occasion!
