Hello Stampers! I'm back today with the Can You Case It Design team and we have a fun sketch for you this week!
There are so many possibilities! My design is one that popped into my head a few days ago while running errands... I always have stamping on my mind!
The lovely embossing folder I used for the background is called On Point. It isn't actually trees, but the shape matched the new Tree Punch perfectly! So it works at Christmas and then throughout the year as well!
I embossed the folder and then trimmed it into four sections. I played with different patterns of the Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper Stack until I found a few patterns that worked well together. Along the way, my card turned a bit country with the patterns so I kept that theme up with all of my other decisions.
I stamped my tree in Garden Green...aren't all the details lovely? So easy to stamp and punch! I stamped the base in Early Expresso and the star in Cherry Cobbler and then fussy cut both out. I popped all of three pieces up with Stampin' Dimensionals and then decided to add the little Cardinal. He's also been fussy cut and popped up. I have used this set before but I only ever noticed the tree stamps, I didn't even see all of these fun little accent stamps!! LOVE them!!!
And isn't the sentiment so cute? There's a matching stamp for the inside of the card as well...
So darling!! I felt that the card needed just a bit "more" so I reached for Candy Dots in Early Expresso, Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green. They add the perfect finishing touch!
I hope you have time to pop on over to the Can You Case It challenge blog to see what the other designers have created with this fun sketch! I can't wait to see what you create!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
