I made my first holiday card! I had fun making this!
The tree was stamped with Shaded Spruce and die cut. Merriest Trees Bundle. Page 12.
The sentiment is from the Merriest Trees stamp set; I die cut with the Stylish Shapes dies.
The tree lights and the star were all die cut from the Merriest Trees dies using Gold and Silver Foil DSP.
The tree stand is from the Merriest Trees dies. I used the Joy of Christmas DSP- it looks like wood! Page 29.
The presents are from the Rocking Horse stamp set and dies. I stamped with Memento and colored with Shaded Spruce, Soft Sea Foam, Bronze and Real Red Blends. Page 18.
I wanted the background to look like a home. The green paper is from the Joy of Christmas DSP. I cut it 4″ x 5-1/4″.
I added a 2-1/2″ x 4″ piece of Basic White that I had scored every 1/4″.
I die cut the scallops with the Scalloped Contours dies with Basic White. I then embossed it with the Basic 3D Embossing Folders.
I added the edges on the top with three pieces of Basic White- all 1/4″ wide. One is 4″, the other two are 2-3/4″. I cut the three corners on one side of each piece so they look mitered.
