Christmas Tree with Stamping 411

I saw this weeks sketch over at Stamping 411 and was intrigued but I have to admit, when I sat down to actually work with it I had some trouble! I think it was the circle in the bottom left that kept throwing me off, I couldnt find anything I liked to go there. I finally went with some Old Olive embossed with the Snow Burst folder and I think going simple was the right balance against the tree!

I love this tree from the Christmas Lodge set. It makes me want to put up my Christmas tree right this second but we get a real Christmas tree, so it will be a while yet before I can get mine up. I'll just enjoy this stamp until then :)

I used Dazzling Details on the tree for a snow in the sun look, and the 2nd photo of the card I tried to get a good shot of the sparkle. This time of year though in my neck of the woods I dont get a whole lot of bright sunlight but I think I got enough of an angle and sun to show the pretty sparkle of the card!

Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Christmas Lodge, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Early Espresso, Marina Mist, Old Olive, Naturals White, Letters to Santa DSP
Ink: Early Espresso, Always Artichoke
Accessories: 1 3/4" circle punch, Scallop Edge Border Punch, Modern Label Punch, Paper Piercer, Dazzling Details, Snowburst Embossing Folder, sponge, dimensionals



  1. Oh geez--gotta get this tree now!! This is absolutely gorgeous!! I love the sparkle, and I agree--the simple green circle is perfect!!

  2. Love, love, love this tree!!!! Wowza!

  3. This is great, Lisa. I love the little bit of sparkle on the tree - it really adds dimension! I also like that little circle of "snowflakes" - I wouldn't have thought of using that folder with a simple circle! Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. I think your card turned out awesome!! Thanks for playing along with us over at Stamping 411!!
