The Stamp Review Crew - Festival of Trees Edition

Hello and a big welcome to you, to our very last Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop for the year. We are finishing with a fabulous Christmas stamp set that has been around for a little bit, Festival of Trees. 

This is such an awesome set and there are so many fabulous ideas out there! I love the all the different tree images that give you a different look and feel to your creation with each one.

Seeing as there are now only 4 more sleeps till the big day I wanted to create something that you could easily make for that last minute card. I know we all have one of those that we need to whip up in a hurry and I',m sure this one would take you no time at all to quickly do.

I used the tree punch to punch out a heap of trees out of Kraft Cardstock to create my own background. If you wanted to make it a bit more fancy you could stamp one of the tree images first and then punch them out for a different background again. I wanted to keep the background looking clean and neutral.

I embossed the tree image on vellum with White Stampin' Emboss Powder and then embellished the card with some ribbons and glimmer paper. How pretty is that new Pool Party Glitter Ribbon coming out in the new Occasion Catalogue starting 5th Jan 2016. It works really well with Christmas creations too.
 The 'merry' is from the Christmas Greeting Thinlits and the 'Christmas' is actually from one of the sentiments from the Festival of Trees Set, I just trimmed it down so I could only have the word 'Christmas' and not the rest of the sentiment.

I really hope you've enjoyed my creation today. For more fabulous Festival of Trees creations click on the 'Next Blog' button below to hop on to Linda Callahan
