I used the versatile Life is Beautiful stamp set to make this classic fall tree.
I took a 3 3/4 x 5 piece of Vanilla, rounded the corners with the Trio punch. I stamped the tree in Crumb Cake and then used 3 colors for the leaves: Merlot, Pumpkin Pie and Bumblebee.
A few tips: make sure there is space above the tree, it somehow looks better! When adding the leaves, stamp off the ink on a scrap piece of paper (sometimes call second generation stamping) so the color goes on lighter. You can easily add color by stamping more.
Don't forget your leaves on the ground!
I love the new embroidered ribbon (under the hello), about 7" and the ever versatile gold glitter dots add a little something.
When it was all finished I added the tree to the gold cards - di you see these on page 51 of the catalog (the Holiday catalog) I think they are a "hidden gem". Love the matching gold envelopes.
I used this set a lot and I'll be posting more options with it this week and next! Don't forget our designer paper sale, I love our products and love them even more with a discount!
Happy crafting MaryKate
