Christmas Card Club - Lovely as a Tree from Stampin' Up!



Our Christmas card club challenge was set by Margaret all the way down under in Sydney for this fortnight. She asked us to use the theme of Christmas trees.  Often being Mrs last minute.com I didn't read this challenge before I read the last so you can see Christmas trees also on my last club challenge using Festival of Trees , but this time I've used an old Stampin' Up! favourite Lovely as a Tree which has been in the Stampin' Up! catalogue for over a decade.

I embossed the lone fir tree top in silver and punched it out with the 2"circle punch and then 'smudged' the edge gently with smoky slate ink.  I matted it onto a scallop circle of silver foil card which I texture embossed with the decorative dots folder.  Everyday Chic washi tape made a simple background and I also added some of my lifetime supply (I ordered 5 rolls thinking it only had 4.5m per roll which in fact it has 45m per roll!) of silver thread on which I threaded sequins from the metallic assortment.

You can create all sorts of sentiments with the Alphabet rotary stamp just by rolling the letter bands to create the words you require.

A great new addition to the Stampin' Up! card stock range is the new Whisper White Thick A4 card stock in 270gsm so you can now make white card bases that stand up!

Do please pop by the other ladies in our challenge group and see their challenge offerings for this week.  You can find them all in my sidebar.

Enjoy what's left of the weekend.

  1. Hello Zoe and what an elegant card, the black, silver and white is so stylish too, love it.
    Zoe, I've trying to get a particular stamp from SP, but I can't make head nor tail of the catalogues, it's a rose stamp which you don't need to colour. Perhaps if you know which one I mean you could tell me how to purchse it. My email address is on my blog, hugs Kate x

  4. I'm with the other commenters on the elegance of this pretty black & white long shaped card. Love this particular SU tree image, and you've used it wonderfully well in the circle mats. The washi tape added such drama to an already pretty design, and was really bold graphics with the softness of the tree image. So very lovely. TFS & Hugs
