Trimming the Tree card Step-by-Step

Happy Holidays Card (4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″) Shop for supplies: here

Sleigh bells ring—are you listening? Okay, maybe it’s a little early for Christmas carols, but now is still a perfect time to begin thinking about crafting festive cards for your holiday celebrations. We’ve made it easy with our wintry and wonderful Trimming the Tree Stamp Set to inspire you.

To create the beginner version of our Happy Holidays card, start by folding Soft Succulent Cardstock in half; stamp the Christmas tree and ornament images in Soft Succulent ink. Tie the Basic White Cardstock layer with Baker’s Twine, then adhere it to the card front. Add a simple sentiment and a few sparkling Champagne Rhinestones to complete this simple yet elegant card.

We stepped up our second card by leveraging the two-step stamping option and adding depth and dimension with contrasting pine boughs stamped in Evening Evergreen ink. We included a shabby chic element by cutting the Basic White Cardstock layer with one of the Deckled Rectangles Dies.

To create our most stepped-up card, we added a few extra layers, copper embossing, a fancy tag made using Basic White Cardstock and the Meadow Dies, and a bit of White 3/4″ (1.9 cm) Frayed Ribbon. Notice how the use of Stampin’ Dimensionals really makes the Christmas tree pop out!

The Trimming the Tree Stamp Set is one you’ll use year after year, so be sure to add this timeless set to your holiday stamp stash soon!
