Recipe for sneak peek 4 Tree Trimmings


I think (and hope) that this card looks rather elegant. It could be done in any colour scheme that you choose, I went with purples (already admitted as one of my favourite colour sets for christmas) but traditional reds or greens would look equally good. Even better, why not make a set as a gift, in different colours?


This card uses the full set of 4 stamps from the Tree Trimmings stamp set.


Recipe
Stamp Sets: Tree Trimmings, Occasional Greetings
Cardstock: Elegant Eggplant, Lovely Lilac, Whisper White
Ink: Versamark, Elegant Eggplant
Narrow Grosgrain Ribbon: Elegant Eggplant
Other: White EP


I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to place the the smaller baubles in the background. The largest bauble is stamped with Versamark onto dark cardstock, heat embossed with white powder, cut out with a narrow border and raised on dimensionals.

Off again to do a quick bit of revision and then out for a curry with my classmates. Last day tomorrow and then back home - phew, thank goodness.
