Sweet Tree




I created this card for the Paper Players Challenge, Christmas in July. I love how it ended up!

I started with a base of Old Olive. I used a piece of DSP, retired (of course). The top is Very Vanilla, and there is a ribbon of Cherry Cobbler seam binding. I have a giant scallop of cherry and then a 1 3/4" vanilla circle. I used the tree from Holiday Hoopla, which I bought before IT retired! I stamped the tree in Early Espresso, the center of the tree in Old Olive, the skirt of the tree, stamped separately on vanilla in cherry and cut out. I also stamped an olive gift and a More Mustard star, both on vanilla, and cut those out and popped them up using stamping dimensionals. Finally, I added "merry" in cherry on vanilla using my jewelry tag punch and Tiny Tags set. I also added an olive and cherry tag. I
L-O-V-E this look. I fixed them into place with another dimensional.


On the inside, I used the "Merry Christmas" sentiment from Four the Holidays (I have no idea if that is retired, but it's a perfect set!) It is in cherry, too.



Thanks for looking...
