O Christmas Tree

Good morning! Today is the big day! Sale-a-Stamp is going on all day and that means you have the opportunity to save of almost all of our stamps. Today is the only day that you can receive 15% off your stamp order so please let me know if you have an order to place. Now onto today's card. We made this one last week at the Christmas card class and it is inspired by the bag on page 7 of the Holiday Mini. The colors we used are Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Lucky Limeade and Very Vanilla. We used three punches on the card. The new 1 1/4" Scallop Circle Punch, new Star from the Merry Minis Punch Pack  and the 3/4" Circle Punch. To add some texture we used the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Folder on the tree trunk and then the Petals-a-Plenty Folder on the Crumb Cake Card Base. There are two stamp sets with the first being a wonderful sentiment set Petite Pairs and the Jolly Bingo Bits Stamp Set which is a 24 piece Christmas set, both are on sale today. For accessories we used Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine, an Early Espresso Button, a scallop punch from the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack and Champagne Glimmer Paper which is so pretty. This card goes together pretty quickly it just has quite a bit of punching but you could make multiples pretty easily if you are still looking for a Christmas Card idea.
Thanks for stopping by today. I have my to do list ready for today. Lots of last minute Halloween items to check off the list and of course I hope to do some stamping. Have a great day, Tonya
