O' Christmas Tree PPA12

Pals Paper Arts has a Simple Sketch Challenge this week. Don't you just love a good sketch? I've got Christmas on the brain... I'm so anxious to put up the Christmas tree and deck out our little house in holiday happiness.

I tweaked the sketch a bit and made a 5.5" square card on a Chocolate Chip base. Do you just love this color combination? Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Cameo Coral, and Old Olive. Sassy!! The details on this card are what make my heart happy:
  • Flocked paper from Christmas Cocoa
  • Texture galore courtesy of Petals-a-Plenty Embossing Folder
  • Divine Patterned Pines complete with a 'sugar' coating of Dazzling Diamonds
  • Double Stitched Ribbon for a home-spun feel
One quick TIP: To glitter my trees I first inked my stamp in VersaMark ink and then inked it AGAIN in my color of choice, stamped onto Very Vanilla card stock, sprinkled with Heat and Stick Powder, warmed with my Heat Tool and finally glittered with Dazzling Diamonds.

Do you love all things PINK?? Pals Paper Arts will be hosting a VERY special challenge on October 29th with an awesome PINK Prize Package - stay tuned!

I hope you'll join in the fun at Pals Paper Arts this week!

Ooh, Carrie, I love this card--absolutely beautiful! And thank you for explaining the Dazzling Diamonds technique. I've been struggling with it since I got it. But now I understand what to use it with to make it work. This card goes in my Idea File!

I love the Cameo Coral popped in this! What a great idea! I also love your signature extras - the ribbon is sooo cool - and the button is perfectly placed!

Sassy for sure!

Gorgeous! I'm not a big fan of the pink Christmas trend, but your mix of colors made Cameo Coral a wonderful accent. Love how you stacked the buttons and that tag is darling as well!
