A festive trio of trees Christmas card using Festival of Trees from Stampin' Up!

Good morning crafters. As I didn't have a chance to share something crafty yesterday I am posting again today with this party make I shared with a lovely group of ladies last week. I demonstrated for a fantastically creative and clever group whose craftiness was incredibly inspiring. And I loved sharing stamping with them as it was something new to all of the ladies.

We used the Festival of Trees stamp set and coordinating punch to create a trio card. The card above is the slightly blinged up version I shared with the ladies to show how a little ribbon and Designer Series Paper can take a card up a level. The simpler version we all all made together is at the bottom of this post.

We used a simple trio of colours to create the three trees (a great starter combo for making your own Christmas cards)- Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler and Gold Encore ink. And don't forget that until October 6th all of our SU coloured ink pads are reduced in price to celebrate World Cardmaking Day. Get your hands on our ink pads for just £4.21 each.

We added stars punched with the Itty Bitty Accents punch set. These were punched from Gold Glimmer Paper. The sentiment is from the Good Greetings stamp set which is exclusively available to Hostesses who host a party before October 31st. Click here to find out more. The lovely Chrissy received this set for free for a lovely crafty evening with friends last week. 

The blinged up version was embellished with a length of Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper and wrapped with Blackberry Bliss Stitched Ribbon. The sentiment was then embellished with Basic Rhinestones.

Our simpler version we simply stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler and punched with the Word Window Punch. The sentiment was then layered on to a punched Oval of Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper.
