Try Stampin' On Tuesday ~ Challenge #634

With Christmas getting closer, I hope that you're still finding time to craft. I find that playing with paper and glue calms me down and it's a little escape from the hectic pace of life today. If you're looking for some inspiration, we have a new challenge at Try Stampin' On Tuesday.

Optional theme: trees

Here's my card

On my card, I made the lone tree the focal point. I used Stampin' Up's Festival of Trees stamp set with Concord & 9th's Evergreen ink, stamped onto some natural cardstock. I used gold embossing powder for the pot at the base of the tree. It doesn't photograph well. I searched through my patterned paper for two pieces of traditional red and green paper. I die cut the circles using a Sizzix circle die. For the sentiment, I used Clearly Besotted's Sentimental Type which I heat embossed with gold embossing powder on red cardstock. I die cut the sentiment with a My Favorite Things' Skinny Strips die-namics die. I found some tone-on-tone patterned paper for the background panel. I glued all the pieces in place and then adhered the panel to a white A2 card base to complete my card.

We'd love to see how you're inspired by our sketch this fortnight. Please add your cards to our gallery.
