Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for “My Favorite Season”  – showcasing our favorite stamps and supplies for our holiday project.  You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

It’s easy to see, I chose Christmas for “my favorite season,” but this card has special dimension. Follow along to see how I made it.

Framed Christmas tree

 

I began by building a frame with Toile Tidings Designer Paper. First, I used the largest Rectangle Stitched Die to cut the green, leafy print. Second, I cut an identical piece of Thick Very Vanilla Cardstock. Third, I glued the two together, and used a Beautiful Boughs Die to cut a hole, making a frame. Fourth, I attached Adhesive Foam Strips to the frame’s back, so it could be lifted on the Thick Very Vanilla card base. 

 

Next, I found a beautiful tree in my stash of unused pieces for my focal point. The tree is from the Winter Woods Stamp Set, and cut with a die from In the Woods. I remember using several shades of green; probably Shaded Spruce, Garden Green and Mint Macaron. I used regular Dimensionals to lift the tree from the card front.

TIP: The tree is lower than the frame, because Foam Adhesive Strips are double the thickness of regular Dimensionals.

 

“Merry” is from the Merry Christmas Die Set, which I cut from Real Red Cardstock, and layered for thickness. “Christmas” is from the Merry Christmas To All Stamp Set, stamped in Real Red Ink on Thick Very Vanilla Cardstock, and cut with a Merry Christmas Die.

The Beautiful Boughs Die Set provided the pinecones. I cut two solid shapes from Crumb Cake Cardstock, and two open shapes from Soft Suede Cardstock, and glued the two together. A bow of Linen Thread was glued to the top of the pinecones, and my card was complete.
