O' Christmas tree!

   Morning! :o)  Middle of the week has me running to get things done!!  We are traveling for the holidays and so my To Do list is sincerely longer than I am tall! Yikes! Lots and lots and lots to do!  I do have a fun card to share with you today though! It uses the Pennant Punch and Pennant Parade stamp set from Stampin Up!  Each tree takes three stamped and punched trees to create.  They look so cute popping up off the page!

How cute are they?! :o)  You stamp, punch and score each down the center.  Then you glue the edges together and then the final outside edges get glued down flat against your card.  I stamped the little tree holders first and then used a blender pen and some Going Gray ink to create shadows. Although this would probably do fine in an envelope I may save this card for an envelope-less gift and save smooshing my trees flat!

Side view.

Each tree has a Rhinestone topper.  I debated whether or not to color the rhinestones but decided to just leave them as is.  *Note!  If you decide to color your rhinestones for a project do it on the rhinestone paper rather than your project!  Better safe than sorry!

Stamps: Pennant Parade and Contemporary Christmas
Paper: Always Artichoke, Lucky Limeade, Old Olive and Very Vanilla
Ink: Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip and Cherry Cobbler
Extras: Rhinestones

How are your Christmas preparations coming along?!  I am feeling waaaaaay behind, but that wouldn't be much different from any other year! LOL Have a wonderful Wednesday!  I will be back soonest with more to share!
