Stampin' Up! Lovely As a Tree Shadow Background Holiday Card
November 28, 2011
You can't go wrong with a Holiday Card using Stampin' Up!'s Lovely as a Tree stamp set. Plus, create a quick shadow background using Stampin' Up!'s Clear Block H and you'll be cranking out these cards in no time at all.
This card is a case of Amanda Mertz's card. The layout is the same, but I used different colors. I loved the way she used a Clear Block Shadow Background she to create a "frame" for the trees. I stamped the shadow block with Pool Party Classic Ink and the trees image is stamped with Island Indigo Classic Ink.
Dawn's Snowflake Die Cutting Tip:
I was having a little trouble die cutting the Silver Glimmer Paper Snowflake. It wasn't cutting all the way through very nicely. So I peeled off a layer of paper from the backside of the Silver Glimmer Paper, then die cut it. It worked like a charm!
Here's the exact same card using the exact same supplies with the exception of the card base. I couldn't decide which one I like the best. Which one do you like the best...Pool Party or Sahara Sand?
