Stampin’ Up! Trimming the Tree in Layers

Good Friday morning! What’s on your calendar today? Or for the weekend? After several days of heavy rain, we are in the sunshine again – and fall is in the air. Which means Christmas is not far away. So what do I have for you today? That’s right, a Christmas card. Card class was yesterday and we had a good time. I’ve taken a layout that I’ve seen online and changed the colors, but definitely the layout is pretty much the same.

Stampin' Up! Trimming the Tree w/ layers.1

This DSP comes from Painted Christmas and I chose Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent as my colors of choice. You can see a bit of silver heat embossing for garland. The stamp set is called Trimming the Tree. I’ve also used the Very Best Trio Punch to full advantage (wait til you see the inside :O).

The card base is Basic White Thick card stock. I’ve adhered together three layers: Evening Evergreen, Painted Christmas DSP and a smaller Basic White panel. These were wrapped with Open Weave Ribbon in Evening Evergreen and attached in back with Stampin’ Seal. These three layers were added to the card front.I then took another Basic White piece and with the Very Best Trio Punch – made the fancy edges. The sentiment is stamped in Evening Evergreen ink and comes from Trimming the Tree stamp set. The tree is stamped first in Soft Succulent ink, then the detail of the tree was stamped in Evening Evergreen ink. I rubbed the surface with the Embossing Buddy – so glad we have that item again! – used the garland stamp in Trimming the Tree and VersaMark ink to stamp the garland. This was sprinkled with Silver Embossing powder and heat set with the Heat Tool. I added five Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels for extra charm. The top is a star die cut from Silver foil with the coordinating dies available during Sale-a-bration. With this panel complete, I adhered it to a larger piece of Evening Evergreen, put dimensionals on the back and attached it over the ribbon. To create the bow, I took a length of the Open Weave Ribbon in Evening Evergreen (about 10″) and cut it down the middle, slipped it under the wrapped ribbon and tied a bow. Love.

For the inside – similar layers… but let’s begin with the sentiment panel. This Basic White piece was stamped in VersaMark and sprinkled with Silver Embossing Powder,(yep – the sentiment is from Trimming the Tree!) then die cut with this very fun die. This was adhered to an Evening Evergreen piece to set it off. I again used the Very Best Trio Punch to create the fun edges on the Basic White panel, adhered that to Evening Evergreen and attached it to the inside of the card. Done… :O) Fun card, right? And, you could use different DSP panels and change the color of the tree: Garden Green, Shaded Spruce, your choice – to create several of these. What do you think?
