Preview Week Day 6: Crumb Tree

Hello everyone! I was up early this morning to get Nick to the bus where he is going to the east slope to play two high school soccer games! A little too early for me but I don't think I will be going back to bed or taking a nap today. I'm hoping to get a lot out of my last day of Fall Break. Back to work on Monday! I am feeling much better but still get those annoying coughing fits. I hate those!! Nick will be back tomorrow afternoon so we will enjoy our quiet home this weekend - lol!

It's day 6 of Preview Week at Create with Connie and Mary! Two more designers have been announced and are sharing their creations along with blog candy! So make sure you visit their blogs to find out how to enter to win! Since the Holiday Edition is getting ready to launch, I decided to make another Christmas card. The Festival of Trees stamp set is just so easy to use! Love the photopolymer and the matching punch! I didn't use the punch this time.

  • Card base is Crumb Cake
  • Adhere a piece of Trim the Tree designer paper to a piece of Garden Green card stock and then adhere to card base with dimensionals
  • Ink up the tree from Festival of Trees using Garden Green ink and then use an old blender pen to lift the ink off the stem of the tree and color the stem with an Early Espresso marker then stamp onto a strip of Whisper White
  • Flag the bottom of the Whisper White strip
  • Stamp the pot image onto Whisper White using Early Espresso and cut out then adhere to bottom of stamped tree
  • Stamp the greeting onto the strip using Cherry Cobbler ink then adhere banner to card with dimensionals
  • Add a rhinestone to top of tree
  • Tie a piece of linen thread through a basic metal button and adhere to card
Super simple! Don't forget to visit the Create with Connie and Mary site to sign up for the Holiday Edition! Early bird pricing ends soon! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
