I created my card using these stamps
They are by Judith and when I saw them I thought they were a brilliant idea. You start by stamping the bare tree, then choose the leaves you want, or any of the peg stamps with which to dress the branches. I selected the pine needles, candy cane, candle, bow and light bulb stamps, although I do have quite a few others.
After stamping the bare tree using Memento Rich Cocoa ink, I used the pine needles stamp and Cottage Ivy ink to add foliage to the branches. I then stamped a number of candy canes, candles, bows and light bulbs on white card, coloured with Promarkers and cut them all out before attaching randomly over the tree. The bowl the tree stands in was stamped with Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with Promarkers.
The sentiment stamp was from a £1 box at the Sincerely Yours Craft Show in Taunton last sunday. I stamped and embossed in white on to the red layer and cut a silver star for the top of the tree using a nestie die. Finally I added Glossy Accents on the lightbulbs, candles and candy canes.
It was quite time-consuming, but I am pleased with the final result.
