Yesterday I posted this card on my blog to draw attention to my 12 Weeks of Christmas holiday emails beginning, but today I thought I would tell you about the card Santa’s Sleigh Modern Christmas Tree Card itself. The reason I bought this stamp set, Santa’s Sleigh, was for the sleigh and the reindeer and the beautiful framed art in the Holiday Catalog on page 24. But I haven’t gotten around to playing with those yet! However, I have seen a lot of pretty cards made with this modern looking Christmas tree. Of course it wouldn’t have to be a Christmas tree, it could be any tree!
The card base is Crumb Cake, but Early Espresso is also a coordinating color with the designer paper, Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack. I love this paper stack and you certainly will be able to use it during the winter past Christmas! If you have any left by then! The designer paper is layered on a piece of Garden Green. I was trying to keep this card super simple since I was in a rush, but after I stamped the tree and the packages, I thought it would be fun to color in a little bit and cut out the bows for the packages and pop up the little teddy bear. I also used the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush on the tree branches, although it doesn’t show up in the photograph. I used the Gold Wink of Stella Glitter Brush on the star at the top of the tree. The greeting is in the stamp set and I just cut a very narrow piece of paper after it was stamped so it would fit on the front of the card! Just stamping this card gave me ideas for other cards.
