Layered tree Merry Christmas Card

Hello Everyone, Its Trish from Techniques by Trish.  Its been quite some time since I've had a chance to craft but thankfully I've been able to create a few christmas cards this season.

I decided that it was time to dive into the pile of crafty supplies that have been sitting at the corner my desk that hadn't been used yet, now was a great time to break right into them.

So this is the card that I created for today


To start out, I used Lawn Fawn Lobster Ink on the MFT Diagonal Stripe background stamp for a tone on tone effect for the background of the card.  Lawn Fawn Stitched Stackable Circle Dies was next on the list,  I decided my rectangle ones needed a little break and I really love the circle ones.  

Onto the main event; the Hero Arts Color Layering Christmas Tree Stamp Set.  I used a bunch of different green inks that I had in my collection to create the layered tree effect, which I must say was incredibly easy to do with this stamp set.  But I felt like it was missing a little UMPH.  Onto using another new product that hadn't been touched, White Liquid Appliqué and this stuff is so cool to use and its final effect is just awesome.




To add one last little bit to the tree, I added a few dots of Christmas Red Stickles and it was finished.  Now for the gold on this card, embossing was totally the way it was going to go.  Ranger Super Fine Gold was my choice after using the EK Success Anti Static powder tool and some Versamark ink.  The last touch was a strip of Gold Glitter paper to tie it all together and this card is complete.


And that's it for me!  I hope you all enjoyed this card and that it provided you with a little christmas card inspiration :)

Hope that you all have a fantastic holiday season, I know ours will be busy but incredible!

  1. What size circle die did you use? I only have one of the sets but I think the one I have may be a bit too large. Thanks!
