Festival of Trees

The other day my friend and side line with Stampin’ Up! posted a picture of a card that she liked on FB.  I saw it and fell IN LOVE!   And immediately I said to myself “Cathy, you could make that into a great Christmas card” .  I slept on it and bubbled up into my little brain was this card.  Here is the card that she shared.


As you can see there isn’t a hint on the picture as to who made the card, which is sad because I’d love to thank them for this great lay out.


The stamp set I used as the main focus was Festival of Trees with the matching Tree Punch.   The other stamps are from Sheltering Tree and that old standby Gorgeous Grunge.  The colors are Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush, Garden Green and Tip Top Taupe.  The embellishments are sequins from our Gold Sequin Trim and a gold button that used to be on one of my mother’s coats.  LOL.  She had a cool coat years ago that had this fantastic gold buttons when she got rid of the coat she cut the buttons off and saved them.  I found them in her things when she passed away and kept them because I knew they were special to her.  The funny thing is that these are just plastic gold colored buttons.


So what do you think?  Is this a great layout for a card or what?  Let me know what you’d do different, or if you love it just as it is.  I hope I did it justice.  If you need supplies for your own Christmas cards, you can purchase them at my online store HERE.  Supplies for this particular card are listed below with links.

Now, go and create something sweet for somebody!
