Jen Brum has a CAS sketch/image challenge this week
at Freshly Made Sketches #209:
I was immediately taken by the TREE and used it as my focal point.
I used the awesome SU Wonderland Stamp set- yes, I indeed needed it even though I have the SU Lovely as a Tree. The trees are just majestic.
I had used up my snowflake patterned paper from my Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum Pack and had a lot of candy cane striped paper to use.
I came across a lovely card done by Raquelle Clifton that truly inspired my card as you can see here because I could use the striped pattern!
I used Real Red cardstock to match up with the Fancy Foil candy cane stripe. I love Garden Green on Christmas cards, and it seemed appropriate with the pine tree. To keep my vellum in place without having adhesive show through I only put adhesive under the part covered by the tree panel and then used some silver brads in the corners. Adding a third brad to the sentiment I used from the SU Happy Scenes stamp set fulfilled my “rule of threes.”
And the sentiment fit inside the Itty Bitty Banners framelits!
To finish it off, I added the Smoky Slate snowflakes to the inside.
Here is a look at the SU Wonderland Stamp set:
