Lovely As A Tree Matted Card

Last year's Stamp-A-Stack included this fabulous card, too!  I love the matted snowflakes behind the tree!  So, pretty!  O.K., so I got the idea for this card off Beate John's blog last year.  She credits her inspiration from Julie Buhler's card.  Both ladies have fabulous blogs and ideas!

Comments: Fold Whisper White CS in half. Adhere Handsome Hunter CS to the card front. Lay the ¾” Border Template that I made over the Kraft CS and wheel with the Snowflakes. Then, sponge with White Craft ink in the center and remove template when done. Ink the tree with Handsome Hunter Classic ink and use a Blender Pen and Chocolate Chip Ink Pad to color over the stem. Stamp it on the right hand side of the rectangle. Stamp “Merry Christmas” in Chocolate Chip by using the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to help you line it up. Using the Paper Piercing Tool, Guide and Mat from the Crafter’s Tool Kit, pierce a border around the white rectangle. Layer onto Chocolate Chip CS. From provided scrap CS, punch 1” Chocolate Chip circle and SNAIL to the upper left hand side. Using the Cropodile punch 3/16” hole and set a Jumbo Eyelet. Tie your White Taffeta Ribbon through the hole and adhere layer to card with SNAIL.
