If you need a simple and quick Christmas card, then grab one of my favorite all-time stamp sets, Lovely as a Tree. These timeless tree images will fill any landscape and keep you in tune with Mother Nature. Besides, the beautiful fir tree image is a classic, that will never go out of style!
This stamp set is probably the oldest and dearest stamp set running in the current Stampin’ Up! Catalog. It debuted in 2001 and was the very first stamp set that I purchased. Lovely As A Tree is the equivalent of the little black dress in your wardrobe. It is perfect for every occasion and you receive compliments every time you wear it.
This card, created for my last Christmas card class, is no different. Everyone loved it – so simple, so elegant. Nothing says Christmas like a fir tree that is silver embossed on Whisper White cardstock. While this card can be re-created in any color and for any occasion, I chose to sponge a halo around the tree in Tempting Turquoise ink, and mat the image in silver foil paper and Dapper Denim cardstock. The 1/2″ wide banner is also silver embossed using “Merry Christmas” sentiment from retired Come to Bethlehem stamp set and popped up with mini dimensionals.
Do you have this stamp set already? Is it on your Wish List? If not, here are some cards to encourage you to purchase this stamp set.
Until next time, sending you crafting hugs and inspiration wishes!
