Merry Little Christmas for a Holiday Stamp-a-Stack

Coming up on Thursday I have a Holiday Card stamp-a-stack planned where everyone is going to make up to 4 different designs of cards including this one: 

I was going for something that was easy to make a lot of without taking a ton of time or wearing out your arm, and this is one of the designs that came about.

I loved the snowy/foggy forest look I got by stamping with Basic Grey ink and then re-stamping the tree (of course, from the amazing Lovely as a Tree), before I inked again.  And by having the trees stamped on a separate piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, I didn’t have to worry about what happened to the bottoms of the trees!

Add some stitched grosgrain ribbon around the Very Vanilla layer for a pop of color and color in the sentiment with markers and you get just the right balance of color and snowy day. Smile 

Stampin’ Up! Supplies Used
Stamps – Lovely as a Tree, Merry Little Christmas
Ink – Basic Grey, Basic Black marker, Real Red marker, Gumball Green marker
Paper – Very Vanilla, Basic Black
Accessories – Real Red stitched grosgrain ribbon

Want to make some Christmas cards?

Join me on Thursday (10/24/2013) for a night of stamping in Redmond, WA.  We’ll be making these cards plus one more super cute snowflake sparkle card!
