Winter Woods Trimming the Tree

 

If you have the stamp set, we’d love for you place your creation in our gallery. Clicking on this picture takes you to the site where you’ll learn how to play along.

 

I began my card by stamping the row of trees in Soft Suede ink on Whisper White cardstock. Then, I ran this stamped, cardstock through the Big Shot, using the Softly Falling embossing folder to make snow. And, lickety-split, I glued my embossed cardstock to the Thick Whisper White card base, 

 

Shaded Spruce and Old Olive are the ink colors I used for stamping the Christmas tree on Thick Whisper White cardstock. After stamping, I used the tree’s die from the In the Woods die set for cutting. Before attaching the tree to the card front on dimensionals, I dabbed the tree with a Baby Wipe to give it the effect you see.

 

I always imagine that little birds are decorating the trees in the woods. Luckily, I found two birds, just the right size, in the Botanical Tags die set. It was very easy to snip the birds from their  frame, after die cutting the tag from Cherry Cobbler cardstock.

The banner the birds are hanging on the Christmas tree is made with Vellum cardstock, cut with the Duet Banner Punch. I stamped “Merry Christmas” from Santa’s Sleigh stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink. The words are photopolymer, which enabled me to bend the words in the shape of the banner.

 

 I have a feeling this will be a Christmas card I’ll be making in quantity this year.

Now let’s see what you can come up with using the fabulous, Winter Woods stamp set. And, and don’t be shy about posting it at What Will You Stamp. We’re looking forward to having you join us!
