Cute Christmas Trees for our Christmas Card Club challenge

Whimsical Christmas Trees card making dies stamps with stampin up demo zoe tant

 It's my turn to choose our Christmas Card Club challenge today and the theme is Non-traditional Christmas colours.  I've used white, Early Espresso, Soft Suede and Kraft to create my CAS card for you today.  

I die cut an aperture from a piece of white and added the die cut trees using Christmas Tree dies part of the Whimsical Tree bundle in the Stampin' Up! winter catalogue.  I also die cut a frame for the circle aperture and the trees are carefully stuck to the back of the aperture and are adhered to the embossed background layer using stampin dimensionals to give the impression of depth.  I've then matted it all onto a piece of Early Espresso card before adding to a white base card.

I just love these trees with their long trunks and narrow stitched tops.  They look great in any colour, but I liked the neutral look on the white embossed background.  I'm going to do more with other colours as this was a relatively quick card to put together.

I needed it to be easy as we took our son to University for his first term yesterday. I miss him already and can't wait to see how he gets on.  He's in a flat of 6 with 2 lads and 4 girls.  It will be interesting to see how life pans out for him.  I'm so excited for him and the adventures that await him.  Can't believe my baby boy is so grown up!

Have a lovely Sunday all and enjoy checking out more inspiration with my fellow club crafters by visiting them via the CC Club list above. 

keep safe and keep stamping

This is a lovely card Zoe, quite CAS, and fits your theme perfectly. I'm sorry that my card won't be up until tomorrow - I thought it was Saturday today so I obviously lost a day this week... lol! Christine xx
