Tree Trimmings….

… in non-traditional colours.

Today’s card is one we created a couple of weeks ago in my Volunteer “Crafty Creations” class at the Caloundra Community Centre.

Measurements –
Base Card – Summer Starfruit – 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ or 21cm x 15cm
Layer 1 – Sliver Glitter Paper – 5 3/4″ x 4″ or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 – Concord Crush – 5 1/4″ x 3 5/8″ or 13.5cm x 9cm
Layer 3 – Whisper White – 5 1/8″ x 3 1/2″ or 13cm x 8.5cm

Supplies –
Stamp Set – Tree Trimmings, Short & Sweet (Both Retired)
Ink – Concord Crush (Retired), Summer Starfruit, Real Red
Cardstock – Whisper White, Summer Starfruit, Concord Crush, Silver Glitter Paper
Ribbon – 1/8″ Taffeta – Real Red
Accessories – Rhinestones, Snail Adhesive, Sticky Strip, Stampin’ Marker – Concord Crush (Retired),
Non- SU! – Silver Cord

The images were stamped onto the large piece of Whisper White Cardstock, ensuring that I staggered them when stamping.  I used Concord Crush, Real Red & Summer Starfruit Inks.  I also stamped the same images onto a scrap piece of Whisper White Cardstock, cut out & set aside.

A piece of Real Red Ribbon & the Silver Cord was tied along the bottom prior to adhering this piece to the piece of Concord Crush Cardstock with Snail Adhesive.

The whole piece was then adhered to the piece of Silver Glimmer Paper with Sticky Strip.  I find this holds it a little better, priro to adhering to the Base Card – Summer Starfruit.

Lastly, I drew lines using Concord Crush Marker so that the images looked like they were hanging down.  The cut out images that had been set aside were adhered to the top of the matching images with a little of Snail Adhesive down the middle, the sides turned up a little & Rhinestones added randomly to the images, as well as 3 along the bottom of the card.

I stamped the sentiment direct onto the Whisper White Cardstock with Summer Starfruit Ink.

Would love to know what you think of this one?

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
