Trim a Tree to Get Ready for the Holidays!

I hope you all had an enjoyable thanksgiving with friends and family have started the official kickoff to the holiday season (was anyone else shopping at 4:00 AM on Friday????) We got back into town on Saturday and I made this card while watching the Redskins/Eagles game today (Go Eagles!!!!). This weeks Stamping 411 challenge card would is very simple but has a WOW factor that would be great for making multiples.

The card base uses Garden Green cardstock with a piece of Merry Moments DSP. I wrapped a piece of Chocolate Chip 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon around the the DSP and tied a note before attaching it to the card base. The main stamped image uses the largest ornament from the Tree Triming Stamp Set and Real Red ink on Very Vanilla cardstock (the ornament string was stamped in Chocolate Chip ink and I used the stamp-a-maj to make sure everything lined up). I used my stamping sponge to distress the edge of the paper with Garden Green ink before matting it on a piece of Chocolate Chip Textured Cardstock.

The greating uses the Warm Wishes stamp set with Real Red ink and cut out with the Modern Label Punch. Once again I distressed the paper with the stamping sponge and Chocolate Chip ink. I used the Stampin' Write Marker in Chocolate Chip to add faux brads to the punch before adhering it to the card.

For the top accent I punched out a Real Red snowflake with the new Snowflake punch and used a large green Ice Circle Rhinestone brad to attach the snowflake to the card.

I hope you enjoy this weeks enjoy and let's welcome December with a cheer!
