Lovely As A Tree!!!

This card has been the favorite in all of my Christmas Card Classes this year! The funny this is……it is not even a Christmas Stamp Set – it’s Lovely As A Tree!!! While I am not a fan of the color brown, I do really like this card and that POP of color with the Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding!

For the card base, I used a piece of Soft Suede measuring 4-1/4″ x 11 and I ran that through the Big Shot with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder. TIP: You will want to fold your cardstock in half first so that you know where your crease is and won’t put the card in too deep on the folder! If so, you will end up with a few dots on the back of your card. Then you will take a piece of 2-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ Very Vanilla cardstock and stamp the tree towards the top and the greeting towards the bottom; leaving space in between for your ribbon. The tree is from the Lovely As A Tree Stamp Set and the greeting is from the October Promotional Set – Good Greetings. You can always use the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set or any other favorite greeting of yours. Now you will adhere this to a piece of Crumb Cake measuring 2-3/4″ x 5-1/2″. Once those two pieces are together, you will tie your Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding around them both. I just did a knot but you could always do a bow if you wish. Now you will place this piece onto your card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals! DONE! This is a fairly simple card so you can crank out many of them in a little amount of time!

I hope you enjoyed this sample! Let me know your favorite Holiday Card that uses a non-holiday Stamp Set in the comments below!

Happy Stampin’
