Festival of Trees

     Each week we are getting closer to that magical time of year. Christmas!  So as we make our list and check it twice, we need to get our Christmas cards done.  For me sending out cards puts the sparkle in the holidays.  I like doing cards that I think that person would especially like.  So we did the wreath in the last blog, now it is time for the trees.  Stampin' Up! came out with a marvelous stamp and punch this year called the Festival of Trees.

     I have been busy creating different cards  with the Festival of Trees.  Here is what I came up with on designs.

I decided to do a window card for the Festival of Trees.  Using a circle framelit, I cut a circle out.  This gives you a window into the sentiment which came from Endless Wishes.  I chose Merry Christmas.  I love this stamp because it gives you choices of words and how to stamp.  For example, I could use strictly the word merry.  This stamp has the snowflakes on it. So I used Smoky Gray for the cardstock as my base and cut the circle out.  Make sure your circle is high enough to place the trees.  I stamped the trees from Festival of Trees (you pick which trees you want to use).  Then I punched them out with the tree punch.  The colors I chose were Basic Gray and Lost Lagoon.  I glued them right below the circle.  Next I stamped them using the different snowflakes off Endless Wishes. For one card I used Lost Lagoon for the color and the other card I stamped and embossed with my white embossing powder.  The sentiment was from Endless Wishes and stamped inside the circle. I hope you enjoy these cards.
