Snowy Trees


First of all, Happy World Card Making Day! I hope you’ll all take some time to sit down and make a card today. I have  large class this afternoon so I’ll be overseeing the making of almost 100 so if I don’t get time to sit down on my own, forgive me!

The card I bring to you today is another from my Vintage Christmas class. Yes, it is not the “typical” muted vintage colours but I really like the elements of this card that bring it somewhat into the realm of vintage. Let’s get started!

The base for this card is Old Olive and then I’ve layered it with Cherry Cobbler. I added a piece of Jolly Holiday designer paper which I’d run through the Big Shot with the Snowflakes embossing folder. I sanded it quite a bit to get a distressed look.

In the top left corner I added a large Old Olive bow with a snowflake and basic rhinestone in the centre. Big, I know but I liked it.

For the focal imaging, I used the tree from Paisley Prints. I stamped it three times in various greens (Old Olive, Certainly Celery and Always Artichoke). I cut them out and adhered them on top of each other in a random pattern and then onto a piece of Naturals Ivory cardstock. I added a ruffle of Cherry Cobbler cardstock to the right side of this layer.

For the sentiment, I used my markers and the words from Bright Christmas. I punched them out with the Wide Oval punch and mounted them on a Cherry Cobbler tag cut from the Lots of Tags Sizzlets.

To finish it all off, I took the clear glitter from the Basics Chunky Glitter and used my Tombow multi adhesive to adhere it. I think it looks like a little snowy layer on the trees. I was quite happy with this look. Yeah, not typically vintage but certainly has some vintage elements.

Thank you so much for stopping by and happy card making!
