A simple Christmas Tree

Playing along with this week’s The Paper Players sketch challenge PP555! It is a simple layout that can offer a lot of bang!

I created a simple card for this challenge and adore how it turned out. I am always looking for a way to create a mix of traditional and non-traditional cards.

My focal image is from the Whimsical Trees Stamp set, I heat embossed one of the larger trees on a piece of Basic Black card stock. My Merry sentiment came from the Christmas to Remember stamps set. I white heat embossed it on a piece of Garden Green cardstock.

For my card base and layers I used Basic Black card stock, Vellum and the Sale-a-bration DSP Peaceful Prints, I love this paper so much I ordered 2 pack of it and guess what, they were both free with purchase! Check out some of the great designs in the paper. And to a bit of fun and finish I added a pop of Rea Read Double Stitched Satin Ribbon.

I hope you enjoyed these cards. Be sure to leave a comment and tell me if you like the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack. And if you don’t already have a demonstrator, I would love to fill the position, just click here to get in touch with me.

Update: 08/29/2021 This card was chosen as Headliner of the Week! It was a great sketch and I was happy to play along.

  1. A very striking card, Megan! The white embossed tree just jumps right off the black card stock. I LOVE the “pop” of red. Thank you for sharing at The Paper Players this week!

  2. Love the clean lines of this design! The embossing for the tree and the pop of red with the ribbon tab are perfect details for the Christmas season! Thanks for sharing at The Paper Players!
