Woodland Trees Christmas Card

Here's a fun Christmas card, this time using stamps from several sets. I realize this should have been posted sooner as this embossing folder has been retired and is now out of stock but some family health issues have taken precedence lately!  I'm sad this folder has been retired for it was a great one and so popular!   *See update below!!

  • First I stamped the evergreen tree from Lovely as a Tree onto the inked folder.  This makes the evergreen appear behind the tree trunks.  I used my Mossy Meadow Marker to mark all the lines on the tree.
  • Stamp the snowflakes with White Craft Ink, sprinkle with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder and heat with Heat Tool.  This gives them some lovely sparkle!
  • Wrap Cherry Cobbler Twine around the card front layer twice and fasten to the back.  Stamp "Merry Christmas" on White Cardstock and cut out.
  • Stamp cardinal from Festival of Trees in Real Red on White cardstock and cut out.  Adhere to background.
  • Adhere embossed layer to a Mossy Meadow card with Dimensionals.

If you look closely, you can see some of the sparkle on the snowflakes in the trees....

Stamps:  Merry Everything, Lovely As A Tree, Festival of Trees (cardinal)
Inks:  Mossy Meadow, Cherry Cobbler, Real Red,  Craft White Ink ink pads; Mossy Meadow Marker
Paper:  Whisper White, Mossy Meadow, Soft Sky cardstocks

Christmas Dove of Peace

This Dove of Peace stamp is another one of the stamps that caught my eye when i first saw this year's Holiday Catalog.  I think it is so pretty, graceful and lends itself to being coloring or left uncolored. 

The black and white striped vellum makes a bold statement behind the Rose Red background behind the dove.

Two strips of the White 3/8" Stitched Ribbon were added to the card then one strip of the 1/8" Silver Ribbon was adhered over the seam to cover it and add sparkle and to the card before I attached the Rose Red background  Two Rhinestones were added to the Rose Red layer which add even more sparkle to this simple design.

On the inside I used the verse from the set and added a strip of Rose Red cardstock for contrast (no picture).

I have another card I made with this set where I colored in parts of the dove HERE:.

Stamps:  Dove of Peace set
Inks:  Basic Black Archival
Paper:  Smoky Slate, Rose Red, Whisper White cardstocks, Winter Wonderland Designer Paper Stack (striped vellum)
Accessories:  Lots of Labels Framelits, Rhinestones, Silver 1/8" Ribbon, White 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon.

Thanks for visiting!  Have a lovely weekend.

Oh, for the Dove of Peace to cover this world with His wings this Christmas.
