Lovely As a Tree Classic Layered Card

Today I wanted to get back into a classic set from the Annual Catalog. Lovely As a Tree is one of Stampin’ Up!’s longest running and best selling stamp sets. This beautiful set features a variety of trees and small accent stamps, and can be used for just about any occasion!

I fussy cut the small pine cone and pine branch stamps to accent my layered sentiment, and used a glue dot to hold it together. Then tied some linen thread around the layered pieces for added interest.

To make the scene cohesive and look like one long stamp, I used my Stampin’ Write marker in Basic Gray to mimic the lines of the stamps and connect the hills under the trees. You can’t even tell it isn’t a connecting image!

For the little bird and the sentiment, I used the Sitting Here stamp set. I love using layers on my cards, and think that this double layer with the sentiment raised is a nice touch to add dimension to the card.

Measurements:

Old Olive Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 4-1/4″

Simple yet versatile 

So I was playing in the craft room the other day and saw a card that inspired me to make this simple yet versatile design. It’s great for any occasion! Guys or girls, birthday to sympathy, just add a saying off to the right and you’re good to go!

  
Used a dark green card base, Crumb Cake for a second layer, Whisper White, then used three shades of green for the “brushed” background and stamped the pine from Lovely As A Tree. Added some twine and voila! Quick and easy card ready in minutes!

Order a set by contacting me! I can customize any order with quantity, sayings, or other cards or gift wrapping. Order a stationary set that includes a decorative box to house the cards and envelopes to give to a special friend.
