Stampin Up Lovely As a Tree Christmas Greeting Card Number Two

Good Morning!  Today I'm sharing with you a card that I demonstrated for my stamp club Ladies Play with Paper!  We met on Thursday this week and I showed a lot of different samples of cards that can be made with one of my favorite stamp sets, Lovely as  a Tree.  The set is soooooooooo versatile, you can  make any occasion with this set and it's perfect for masculine cards too.  The card we made in club is a Christmas card using a technique called 3-D stamping. 
I used the following product in this card:
Stamps:  Lovely as a Tree, Petite Pairs
Punch: Oval
Heat gun
1/4 " Old Olive Grosgrain ribbon
White Craft Ink
Baked Brown Sugar Ink
Embossing Powder or choice or Heat and Stick and Glitter of choice
Base:  5 1/2 x 81/2 Baja Breeze (retired)
Whisper White background- 5 1/4 x 4
DSP- 5 x 1 (retired holiday DSP used in sample)
Crumb Cake (Kraft)- 5 x 2 1/2
Whisper White 5 x 1 1/2
Here is a close up of the 3-D look that the trees have.  I loved this look of "snow" and thought it would make a wonderful Christmas/Holiday card and the ladies in club seemed to really like the card. 
I tore the smaller white piece of paper to look like snow under the trees.  You could also add glitter if you wanted for more shimmery snow on the ground.
This look is made by stamping the trees with the white craft ink and then in the Baked Brown Sugar.  Then you add the embossing powder and set with the heat gun.

 The Merry Christmas greeting and the inside sentiment, "and a Happy Joyful, BRIGHT New Year" are from the stamp set Petite Pairs.

Here is a final look at the card.

Thanks for stopping by!
