Christmas Tree

It's hard to believe summer is at an end. We've already been enjoying the cooler evenings, but not really liking the earlier sunsets! The end of summer means we better get moving on creating our holiday cards because they'll be here before we know it. 

This week the Stampendous Design Team is sharing some the beautiful tree images from Stampendous.  This simple, yet elegant, Christmas card will take you hardly anytime and will impress everyone!


GL220U Crystal Glitter
MPW811 Mixed Media White Paper

DWLG651 Christmas Tree
DWDSP Silver Embossing Paste
DWDPK Dreamweaver Palette Knife
DWLM2010 Paste Spreader

My Color Cardstock - Cloak Gray, Deep Indigo
Removable Tape
Creative Impressions 3/4" White Crepe Ribbon 70132
Craft Glue Dots

Step 1:  Fold a 6" x 9 1/2" piece of Cloak Gray cardstock in half to form an A6 card
Step 2: Cut a 4" x 5" piece of Deep Indigo paper, adhere it to a 4 1/8" x 5 1/8" piece of white, then to the card front
Step 3:  Tape the Christmas Tree stencil to a 3 1/2" x 4 1/2" piece of white paper with removable tape
Step 4:  Use a palette knife and paste spreader to apply Silver Embossing Paste over the design, remove stencil and place in water for cleaning later, sprinkle the wet paste with Crystal Glitter, tap off extra, let paste dry
Step 5: When the paste is dry, adhere the tree to the card front on the blue mat
Step 6: Tie a small white bow, adhere near the bottom of the tree with a Craft Glue Dot

Happy Creating,
