Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree

Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree, How lovely are your branches! For some reason after making this card, that song just keeps playing through my head! What a fun and easy card to do. You'll be able to whip out a batch of these for your holiday card giving in no time at all! This was another idea shared by my "design team" (a fellow demonstrator) on our Stampin' Up! web site! I just love our team!
Ingredients: Stamp sets: Pennant Parade, Tiny Tags, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Old Olive, Whisper White, Early Espresso, Regals Patterns DSP stack
Ink: Old Olive, Early Espresso, More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Mat Pack, Paper Piercing tool, Cherry Cobbler Marker, Organza Ribbon, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Snail Adhesive, Linen Thread, Large Tag Punch, Extra Large Tag Punch, Dimensionals, Petite Pennants Builder Punch, Simply Scored Scoring Tool, Snow Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Dazzling Details

Just look at all the dimension on those branches!
The tree was stamped with the Pennant Parade stamp, then punched with the Petite Pennants Builder punch. I then scored down the middle with the new Simply Scored Scoring Tool, then glued three of them together with the Multipurpose Liquid Glue to give them a good hold. The branches can be laid flat to mail. I love how the Snow Burst textured folder shows the white of the paper core underneath to give it a white snow look and the little tag adds that special greeting to friends and family. And of course, you can't forget the inside!
It's hard to see in the photos, but I added a touch of Dazzling Details, the new iridescent glitter glue from the Holiday Mini catalog that adds that little touch of dazzle to the top of the star. Just a little sparkle without the mess of glitter everywhere. I love, love, love it!! It feels so good to be making a pile of Christmas cards and it's only October! This must be a new record for me! Hope you are all getting in some stamping time and enjoying the beautiful Fall!
Happy Stampin'!
