Stepped up tree

With some of the pieces leftover from our cardmaking evening, I made this. It’s similar to the original (which you can see here) but I changed the stamp, plus a few other details and stepped it up a little with some more patterned paper.

I sent this card to a lady (hope she likes it!) but think it would be equally suitable for a man.

Cardstock: Old Olive, More Mustard, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Paper: Brocade Background Designer Series Paper (p72)
Ink: Old Olive
Accessories: ¼” Grosgrain Ribbon – More Mustard (p86)

  2. oh, I love this card. I like the soft look of it. Thanks for sharing...

  3. Oooh very nice. I like how you stamped the tree in the green but didn't color it in. This card is great for both a male or female. I'm sure your friend will apppreciate it.

  5. Such pretty colors and a fun layout to boot!

  6. The brocade paper is perfect with this card!

  7. Don't you just adore the "Lovely As A Tree" set?!!! I looked through your catty. Less selection that we have in the USA. You have hostess sets that are our regular sets (Heartfelt Thanks) and regular sets that used to be our hostess sets (Perfect Presentation)!!! I like your blog!
