Here’s a quick and easy Festival of Trees card to use for your Christmas Cards this year!  It uses the Trim the Tree Designer Paper Stack.  Many of the patterns in that stack could be used for this card and you can cut two layers per sheet!  Nice and flat for mailing, too!

Festival of Trees

Here are the details:

  • The base is 4 1/4 x 11 Garden Green, folded in half.
  • Next layer is 4 x 5 1/4 Cherry Cobbler.
  • On top of that is 3  x 4 1/4 of the Trim the Tree Designer Paper Stack.
  • Next are a couple strips of coordinating patterns of DSP (1/2 x 4 and 1/4 x 4) to add across the front.
  • The trees were stamped with Garden Green, then the trunk colored with the Chocolate Chip marker.  They were added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Two stars were punched from Gold Glimmer Paper and placed on top of the trees.
  • Finally, Merry & Bright from Christmas Bliss stamp set was stamped with Cherry Cobbler Ink on Whisper White and cut with a flag end.
