Peaceful Pines Christmas card

Hello and welcome to today's post. Today I have created a Christmas card that is clean and simple and yet easy to mass-produce. This card was used in a challenge for a Stampin' Up group I am in. I have used some card stock, Washi tape, ribbon to make a bow and even did a little sponging. The Trees are stamped in Old Olive and the middle tree is popped up for added dimension. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.



1. Create a card base from Tip Top Taupe card stock that is 5 ½” x 8 ½” and score at 4 ¼”. I made mine a top folding card.

2. Cut 2 strips of Washi tape and adhere ¼” from the top and ¼” from the bottom.

3. Trim a piece of Whisper white card stock to fit between the Washi strips. Stamp the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink in the upper left corner and then stamp the tree 3 times in the bottom right corner using Old Olive ink. Stamp the star atop each tree in Crushed Curry ink. Sponge the edges with Tip Top Taupe ink.

4. On a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock, stamp another tree and die cut with the matching framelits. Place dimensional on the back of the die-cut and adhere over top of the middle tree on the focal panel. Pop the focal panel up on dimensionals and adhere to the card front.

5. Create a bow with the white Organza ribbon and adhere it under the sentiment using mini glue dots.

For the inside of the card:


1. Cut a piece of Whipser White card stock 4” x 5 ¼”.

2. Cover bottom of the panel with a strip of the same Washi tape from the front of the card.

3. Stamp the same tree inside with a different sentiment.

4. Adhere the panel to the inside of the card.

I hope you have enjoyed today's project and will check back often for more inspiration. Thank you for visiting.

Happy Mother's Day
