Lacy Tree Christmas

At SweetStamps blog today our theme is Christmas.  Please join us for a chance to win $20.00 in FREE stamps by entering your Christmas creation in our challenge.  If you enter using a SweetStamps stamp you will be entered twice in the drawing.



For this card I started with a step card using the CS25 Center Step Die.  All the stamps I used are from SweetStamps.com and the ink I used is Satin Rose Shades Dye ink.  I stamped the background design using one of the stamps from the S601 Decorative Elements set, this set of stamps has 7 beautiful design elements that are awesome for creating backgrounds, borders or just stamping alone.  I used a course pouncer on the sides of the card then stamped 9074 Vertical Joy.  I used the Satin Rose ink direct to paper and also sponged the ink on a piece of white card stock.  I stamped the 8006 Lace Tree using Distress Embossing ink and heat embossed it with Fine Detail White EP, then hand cut the tree and used foam dots to attach it to the front of the card.  I used the same piece of colored paper to cut out the B148 Holly Lace Flourish die from Cheery Lynn Designs and used Krylon Adhesive Spray to layer it on the card.



For the inside of the card I used more of the colored paper I made than layered on a piece of white card stock that I sponged and pounced with ink.  I stamped it with the 957 May the Peace and used the corner of the element stamp in the corners of the paper.  To finish it I added more of the Holly Lace Flourish. 


I hope you enjoyed this weeks blog challenge at SweetStamps.com, please join us next week when our challenge will be Silver or Gold
