KS Monday–Trees for Holiday



Hello and happy Monday everyone~

I think it’s about time for us to finish all holiday cards and send them to people we care…but I just had to make a couple more for Kitchen Sink Monday!!


I used Multi Step Pine Trees for both cards.

The big pine trees are stamped as following these steps:  4th – SU early espresso,  3rd – always artichoke, 2nd – always artichoke (1 x stamp off), 1st – SU pear pizzazz.

The smaller trees on the scenery card were used the same recipe with the big tree but I also stamped off each step.



This card was designed with the sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping (FTL169). The greeting is from 3 Step Poinsettia.

I added the liquid pearls on the tree.











For this card, I used masked with the torn sticky sheets to create the snow bunks. The bunks and sky were sponged with ink. Then I stamped the trees on the back first and big tree on the front. I stamped the greeting from Ready 4 Any Holiday set. To finish off, I simply paper pierced the both side of the greeting horizontally.
