In the midst of Christmas Crafting and I feel like my reds and greens could use a break. So I decided to bust out a pretty Blue, Brown and Cream color combo. More Stampin' Up! specific, Pool Party, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla. Here is a quick and easy card:
Okay, maybe it isn't quick and easy, given that there is stamping, framlits, ribbon and a button. But it did come together super quick. This was inspired by several samples I saw floating around Pintrest. I love the tree framelits cutting out the corrugated paper and the music note paper. I used some DSP from the Home For Christmas Suite. After placing the trees, I knew I needed some ribbon up at the top. I decided to go with layering the burlap along with the natural chevron ribbon. I added a Classy Button with a Linen Thread bow to finish it all off. Here is a peek inside:
The sentiment is stamped in Soft Suede and I also added a tree stamped off the edge in Pool Party. Here is how I decorated the envelope:
I heard someone say that they never allow naked envelopes, and I think with all the fabulous stamps and washi tape, I also need to adopt this idea. I just stamped that tree in Pool Party on the side.
I love how fast this card came together. I also love that the Perfect Pines bundle will be around after the Holiday Catalog retires. It might be a great bundle to get AND earn Sale-A-Bration rewards come January! And then you can start making Christmas card for next year!
