Festival of Trees

BlogHopHolidayWelcomeWOOO HOOOO!!!!  It’s the end of Week 2 at Create with Connie and Mary Holiday Collection 2014 and it’s time for for another design team blog hop.  On Sunday through Friday only our subscribers can see the AMAZING projects for Christmas/Winter but on Saturdays our design team members join up to do a fun blog hop!  We feature the set we used for out project that week!  If you are going forward through the hop you arrived here from Amy White’s blog.  What a GREAT card!

Wk2SatHopFor my project this week (remember you have to be a subscriber to see it!) I used Festival of Trees.  I LOVE this little set!  A week or so ago I did a silver tinsel tree because it reminded me of a tree my grandma always put up at Christmas.  Well…I thought it would be fun to do another one of these.

I love doing this particular tree in silver since it does bring back that wonderful memory but it is just a fun image to use.  And I’ve sort of been into ‘tag’s lately so I put the tree together with a tag and here it is!

Here’s the details –

  • Brushed Silver – 3 1/2 x 11 folded
  • White/silver print (All is Calm dsp) – 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 and add to card front
  • Cherry Cobbler dsp print (Trim the Tree dsp paper stack) – 3 1/2 x 1 1/2 and add to card front
  • Silver Glimmer – 3/8 x 4 1/4 – cut ends on a diagonal and add to card front
  • Cherry Cobbler  – 2 x 4, punch top using Scallop Tag Topper, emboss greeting using White embossing powder
  • Silver Glimmer – 3/8 x 1 7/8, cut on a diagonal and add to card tag
  • Add White Organza ribbon to top and tie with Silver 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon.  Add tag to card front using dimensionals
  • Emboss tree using Silver embossing powder on Whisper White, punch out with Tree Punch
  • Stamp star, base an bird using Cherry Cobbler, cut/punch out and add to tree. (I added bird using dimensional.)  Add tree to tag using dimensionals
  • Add snowflakes and small silver sequins to finish off.

  1. I just LOVE this card, Mary! The Cherry Cobbler and Silver look amazing together! And by the way, I think my Grandma put up that same silver tinsel tree! XX
