Tradtional Green for Jingle Belles

It's the second week of the challenge over at Jingle Belles and since I went with red last week, this week I am going with green! Green is my favorite color(I just adore Forest Green) and I am really liking SU's new In Color Gumball Green. It was the perfect color to use with a new Christmas set coming out in the holiday catalog(which goes live Aug.1). I love trees, I love the Christmas carol 'Silent Night' and I love the color green, so this card came together pretty quickly for me! It's hard to tell in the picture but I used Vanilla paper for the background pieces with accents of Early Espresso.

Make sure you head over to the Jingle Belles blog and check out all the great cards made for this challenge!
Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Evergreen
Paper: Gumball Green, Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Be of Good Cheer DSP
Ink: Gumball Green
Accessories: Big Shot, Snow Burst EF, Nestabilities Scalloped Ovals Small, Early Espresso Ribbon, dimensionals


  1. I love the lyrical holiday tree ... appeals to the text-o-phile in me ... always thrilled to see you at jingle belles.

  2. well, i'd've said you'd have to go SOME WAY in order to make a card i loved more than last week's, but this one is pretty darned ♥STUNNING♥ too!!! i love that each layer is very clean and minimal, and each one enhances and adds to the last: the polka dots echo the embossed stars, both of those play up the oval sentiment panel, the scallops and ribbon accent the layers... yet again you've made a card that is so much MORE than the sum of its perfectly considered parts! awesome! ♥

    ps: vanilla, espresso, and gumball??!?! you are SOOOOO makin' me hungry over here!!! :) :) :)

  3. This is my favorite stamp in the new catalog! I love your layout on this card! A CASE of this might just find itself in my Christmas Stamp Stack. Thanks for the inspiration, as always, Lisa!

  4. This is a beauty! Silent Night is one of my favorite carols and to have the lyrics of it in the shape of an evergreen tree is just beautiful. Love the green and brown color combo too.

  5. Lisa, thanks for coming back and linking up again! Fabulous embossing and polka makes me drool :)
