Lovely as a Tree

Oh first…before I forget…tomorrow is TOUR DE FREAKS!  Join us as the Freaks celebrate CHRISTMAS!!!

Okay…got that done!  I honestly can say I do not remember the last time I used this set.  I like this set…FABULOUS images!  I’m truly glad SU hasn’t retired it because the trees are just wonderful!  I just haven’t used it in FOREVER!!!  But when I saw the colors for the color challenge on SCS today (Night of Navy, Perfect Plum, and White) I, for some reason, immediately thought of this tree.  Instead of Whisper White, I used shimmery white on my card…oh this is one of the those cards where the picture just does NOT do the card justice!

Quick notes…the base of the card is Shimmery White.  I took another piece of the Shimmery White, ran it through the Chevron folder and added the to the card base.  Took another piece of Shimmery White, ran it through the Apothecary Accents Framelits, embossed the tree in white and sponged around it using Perfect Plum and Night of Navy.  I cut some piece of the Shimmery White with the Apothecary Accents Framelit, ripped the edges, and added to the base using dimensionals.  I added a Silver Glimmer Star (Merry Mini’s punch pack) and 1/4″ circles to the tree to decorate it.  Then added some Silver Dazzling Details to accent the ‘snow’.  Finally for the greeting, stamped using Night of Navy and Perfect Plum, punched with the large oval punch, sponged lightly with Perfect Plum, layered onto a 1 1/4″ Silver Glimmer Scallop Circle then added a Night of Navy Modern Label (that I cut so I could make it longer) and added that using dimensionals.

Oh…I am just sooo happy with this!  But you really do need to see it in real life!

  1. I can only imagine how much lovelier the Shimmery white cardstock made Lovely as a Tree! The picture is great but I’m sure it is even better in person, thanks for sharing with us!
