Welcome to week 9 of Christmas inspiration from the Art with Heart Stampin' Up! team. I have a used an oldie, but goodie on my card this week. The 'Lovely as a Tree' stamp set is not a Christmas stamp set per se, but the lovely pine tree image is perfect as a Christmas tree.
The base card is Garden Green and I have layered the Cherry Cobbler designer paper from the 'Be Merry' pack onto Gold Foil. I have used the largest of the 'Lots of Labels' die cuts as the basis for my stamping and I did make it slightly narrower so it was more in proportion to the tree. I inked up the tree in Garden Green and then used the Early Espresso marker to change the colour of the stem.
To decorate the tree, I used the 1/8" circle punch to cut baubles from Red Glimmer paper and die cut the star from Gold Glimmer paper and popped it up. I stamped the greeting from the 'Santa's Sleigh' stamp set onto Crumb Cake card stock and cut it out with the Lots of Labels die and adhered it to the bottom of the art piece. I added a narrow strip of Cherry Cobbler above the Crumb Cake and finished it with a small gold bow.
For the inside, I have stamped the cute baubles from the new 'Carols of Christmas' stamp set using markers directly to the rubber. At the bottom I have a strip of the Cherry Cobbler designer paper and the cute spotted Garden Green washi to top it off.
Finally, here is a view from the top.
