Peace & Joy

September 8, 2022

Today’s card uses the Trimming The Tree Bundle which I shared during my Facebook Live this week. For this card I decided to create a landscape faux centre step card using the instructions I found on Frenchie Stamps. I cut my card bases from Soft Succulent card and added pieces of the Metallic & Shimmer 6″ x 6″ Specialty Paper which is in the July to December Mini Catalogue. I added layers of Evening Evergreen and Basic White card to the centre step panel before attaching the two card bases together. I stamped the more solid tree image from the Trimming The Tree stamp set onto Basic White card using Soft Succulent ink. I stamped the detailed tree image over the top using Evening Evergreen ink.

I stamped the three bauble images from the Trimming The Tree stamp set onto Basic White card using Cherry Cobbler ink. I cut out the tree and the baubles using the co-ordinating Tree Trimming Dies. These dies are only available for purchase during the month of September. They do not appear in any of the current catalogues, so if you want this stamp set with the co-ordinating dies you need to place your order ASAP. I used the Tree Timming Dies to cut the tree base from Soft Suede card and the bows from Cherry Cobbler card. I attached the tree base to the bottom of the Basic White panel. The tree is attached using dimensionals so that it sits over the top of the tree base. I attached the stamped baubles and die cut bows to the tree image. I cut Gold Foil card using a star die from the Tree Trimming Dies and attached it to the top of the tree.

I stamped the greeting from the Trimming The Tree stamp set onto Basic White card using Evening Evergreen ink and cut it out using the label die from the Tree Trimming Dies. I attached the greeting to the card front using dimensionals. To decorate the inside panel of the card I stamped another greeting from the Trimming The Tree stamp set using Evening Evergreen ink. I also added a panel of the Metallic & Shimmer 6″ x 6″ Specialty Paper to the back of the card to cover the attached image panel. These type of cards usually have the centre step in the middle but I wanted it off-set so that I could attached the greeting. I think this card is very pretty with all the gold and shimmer, don’t you?

Bye for now,

Kris
