Christmas Card: TREE TRIMMINGS

Time to trim the tree! Do you like decorations - of course you do! Care to make some......sure, the easy way!

Well one of the more 'fun' things to do in rubberstamping is when you work with a stamp set that allows you to a) stamp 2 parts to make a 'whole'  and  b) to interchange the design!

TREE TRIMMINGS is one of those stamp sets!  You'll see it on page 44 of our main Canadian catalogue, IDEA BOOK & CATALOGUE in the 'Holidays' section.

I like stamping the ribbon stamp and then stamp any of the 3 decorations I choose to use beneath it - it's fun!!

We made these cards at one of our demonstrator get-togethers and used the colours which match the holiday paper " A Cute Christmas" featured in our Holiday Mini Catalogue - see that striped cardstock - it goes with soooooo much!!!
 Pretty in Pink was always one of my fav combos with Real Red!  Adding Baja Breeze (a muted blue) is then triple-delish! Besides against Whisper White - it all pops beautifully. The stripes in the designer cardtock is excellent at adding just the right amount of co-ordination as it ties everything together - in patterns and colours! Then punch a trim using one of Stampin' Up!'s border punches - shown here is our EYELET BORDER punch which also matches nicely with the decoration's patterns.  So with a few steps you could have a multitude of Christmas cards on there way - all handmade - by you!
