The things that help me make a decision on what I buy for crafting supplies are (1) if it catches my eye immediately, (2) I can come up with at least 5 ways to use it, and (3) I can mix and match it with other products. The Whimsical Trees Bundle had all three of these requirements. It immediately caught my eye as something I did not have before. It can be used for Christmas as well as other occasions. Trees can be used for year round. It has a lot of Christmas images but one of the trees looks like it has lights on it or it could be snow. I love the sentiments in this set because they are different. The bad thing about this bundle is it is going to retire on January 3rd.
I decided to pair the Whimsical Trees bundle with the Stitched Greenery die for this card. I love a little sparkle so I die cut a piece of the Silver Foil Specialty Pack for the background using that die. I love how that die cuts little lines in the card stock but doesn’t cut anything out. I also cut out the stars to go on top of the trees in the Silver Foil.
Then I stamped out the trees in Shaded Spruce ink and cut them out using the coordinating Christmas Trees Dies. I layered them on top of a piece of Peaceful Place Designer Series Paper using Seal and Dimensionals. This DSP has silver throughout many of the sheets. I stamped the sentiment in Versamark Ink, sprinkled Silver Embossing Powder on it and heat set it with my Heat Tool.
I think this is such a sweet Christmas card with a lot of sparkle and shine. What could be better?
Remember that the Whimsical Tree stamp set, the coordinating Christmas Trees Dies and the Peaceful Place Designer Series Paper are all retiring on January 3rd. They are available while supplies last.
