Happy Thursday! It’s almost the weekend – woohoo, right? How IS everyone… with this Covid variant flare-up, it’s got be nerve-wracking. Thinking about all of you out there – take care of one another.

I played with another new set that’s in the Jul-Dec 2021 Mini catalogthe Christmas Tree Dies, part of the Whimsical Trees Bundle (page 25). And when I saw ‘played’ – just barely… this set is a gem and really, I’ve hardly touched it.

C’mas Tree Dies w/ Peaceful Prints.1

That tree is just a perfect match for this paper – Peaceful Prints 12 x 12 DSP – which is a FREE item in the Sale-a-bration catalog (with a purchase of $50). The two prints that I used on this card come from this pack of papers. So let’s talk about how I did this…

  • I did all the card cuts… Peaceful Prints DSP layered with Sahara Sand card stock.
  • I ran the Real Red card stock through the Bark 3D embossing folder – you know, tree, bark, they go together, right?
  • I cut the tree from Garden Green card stock using the C’mas Tree Dies
  • I stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink on a Basic White panel using the Evergreen Elegance stamp set, then die cut using the Ornate Layers Dies

Once all the layers were die cut and stamped, I put it together:

  • the plaid panel was adhered directly to the Thick Basic White card base with Stampin’ Seal.
  • the Real Red embossed panel was added with dimensionals
  • the deer panel was adhered directly to the Real Red piece with Stampin’ Seal
  • the tree was added with dimensionals
  • the sentiment panel got double dimensionals (one on top of the other) under the two ends
  • as a final touch I added several Gilded Gems to the tree – and the card front was done…

For the inside…

  • stamp the sentiment in Sahara Sand ink using the Evergreen Elegance stamp set on a Basic White panel
  • stamp the tree, off-set, in Garden Green ink(stamping off once) using the Evergreen Elegance stamp set
  • layer this panel to a Sahara Sand card stock, then add it to the inside of the card – voila!

For the envelope…

C’mas Tree Dies w/ Peaceful Prints.3

On a Basic White envelope, stamp the trees with the Evergreen Elegance stamp set with Garden Green ink – stamping off once first, then not re-inking.

C’mas Tree Dies w/ Peaceful Prints.4

Cover the envelope with Peaceful Prints DSP, trim to fit and done, done, done.

I love the layers and how so many stamp and die sets coordinate. And that’s Stampin’ Up! for you – the coordination is what makes it so easy to mix & match. And no company does it better.
