I'm thrilled that Stampin' Up! has included the Festival of Trees stamp set in our new catalogue! I stamped the flourishy tree in (now retired) Silver Encore ink, on Shimmery White card. I then heat-embossed it with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. The little bird perched on the tree was stamped in Versamark, then straight into Lost Lagoon ink, and on Shimmery white. It was then embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. My 14-yr-old son had one criticism of this card - he said I should have left the bird off! Here's a close-up of the sparkly, shimmery goodness:
.... and the card in its entirety:
The word "Christmas" is from one of the stamps in the Bright & Beautiful stamp set (sadly, no longer current). I stamped it in Lost Lagoon ink, directly onto the Soft Sky panel.
All of the current SU! products to make this card are shown below, and may be purchased from my online store by clicking on any of the thumbnail images.
I've really enjoyed playing along at Merry Monday these past two weeks, and am going to try to get back into participating regularly.
