Perfectly Plaid Bundle of Christmas Trees

Perfectly Plaid Bundle of Christmas Trees

This card was one of the easiest ones that we made during our recent Stamp-A-Stack of Christmas Cards.  The Pine Tree Punch helped us cut Perfectly Plaid Christmas Trees from the Wrapped In Plaid Designer Series Paper!!  I love how the Stamparatus allowed all the ladies to get the Merry Christmas greeting and the inside verse perfectly aligned without any stress!

Instructions for making the card:

  2. Cut 2 pieces of Whisper White Cardstock at 5-1/4″ x 4″.  Use Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink and the Stamparatus for exact placement of the greeting from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set on the front layer and the greeting on the inside layer.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach both layers to the card base.
  3. Use the Pine Tree punch to punch out 3 trees from the Wrapped In Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach as desired to the front of the card.

And here’s a look with the coordinating envelope:

That’s not a faulty stamp on the envelope – it’s made to have the centre squares appear lighter in colour – like a window!
