Stampin' Up! Whimsical Trees Christmas Card

The Whimsical Trees Bundle from the Mini Catalog is beautiful, especially when used with Be Dazzling Specialty Paper (from Sale-a-bration)!!  Stampin' Up! almost always (maybe always?) has great tree themed stamp sets, but this one is definitely my favorite.  Especially since the coordinating Christmas Trees Dies are equally wonderful!

Just Jade Card Base ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/4", score at 4-1/4"
Basic White Cardstock ~ 5-1/4" x 4" (*2) and 1 scrap at least 1" x 4-1/2"
Cinnamon Cider Cardstock ~ 2-1/4" x 4-1/4"
Misty Moonlight Cardstock ~ 2-1/4" x 5-1/4"
Be Dazzling Specialty Paper ~ 3/4" x 4-1/4" and 2-1/4" x 5-1/4"

  1. Use a Blending Brush to blend Just Jade ink onto one of the 4" pieces of Basic White CS.  Make the ink layer darker at the top and lighter at the bottom, for an 'ombre' look. 
  2. Use the Just Jade ink to stamp the tree on Just Jade CS.  Then, stamp 'happiest holidays' on the strip of Basic White CS.
  3. Stamp the 'snow' tree, using Versamark, on the Just Jade tree.  Sprinkle with White Embossing Powder, and tap off the excess powder.  Use the Heat Tool to set (melt) the embossing powder. 
  4. Place the Basic White CS from Step 1 in the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder and run through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine
  5. Cut a Misty Moonlight tree with the tall skinny tree die from Christmas Trees Dies.  
  6. Then, use the 'garland' die to cut a garland from the  Be Dazzling Specialty Paper.  
  7. Glue the garland to the the front of the Misty Moonlight tree. 
  8. Use the coordinating tree die to cut the stamped and embossed Just Jade tree. 
  9. With the Detailed Trio punch, punch the corners of the Cinnamon Cider CS to create curved corners. 
  10. Fussy cut around 'happiest holidays' with Paper Snips (or other sharp pointy scissors)
  11. Time to attach the layers!  First, adhere the 'ombre' layer to the front of the card. 
  12. Attach the Misty Moonlight tree (with garland) to the Cinnamon Cider piece.  Then, use Stampin' Dimensionals to attach the smaller Just Jade tree.  (as shown in the pictures)
  13. Adhere the Cinnamon Cider piece (with trees) to the front of the card.  Be sure to leave enough room on the right for a Stampin' Dimensional. 
  14. Glue 'happiest holidays' to the strip of Be Dazzling Paper.  Use two Stampin' Dimensionals on the left of the Be Dazzling strip and one on the right to attach it to the front of the card, as shown. 

For the inside of the card, stamp the sentiment from Whimsical Trees in the top center of the Basic White CS.  Then, add a small tree to the lower right corner.  Adhere this piece to the inside of the card.
