Galerie Vernissage Christmas Tree

I fell in love with this stamp 8 years ago.  Then I:


Image:
  1. Stamped it using Brilliance Galaxy Gold and painted with Twinks.
  2. Highlighted the pine cones with Stickles Cinnamon glitter glue
  3. Used Marvy Liquid Applique with heat gun for the snow and laid it aside until last week.
  4. Then I trimmed around the tree.
  5. Used a Sakura Glue pen and added Deco Art Glamour Dust to the snow.
Background:
  1. Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock through the Cuttlebug using Spellbinders Fancy Ribbon Threader largest and next to largest dies.  
  2. Used Cuttlebug embossed Snowflakes background I had been hoarding and with Spellbinders largest die as a stencil, embossed from the back, and cut out.
  3. Mounted it on the center of the largest white die cut as shown.
  4. Mounted white pearl stickers as shown around the edge with Glossy Accents.
  5. Added Deco Art Glamour Dust to the snowflakes here and there using the Sakura Glue pen.
  6. Threaded the ribbon and mounted the bow done with the Bow-Easy.
Sentiment:
  1.  Did the same thing with smaller die cut that I did with the top for pearl stickers and ribbon.
  2. Stamped the sentiment with Memento Rose Bud.
  3. Stamped the corners and the sentiment area using one of the Rubber Stamp Tapestry Pine Branch Border Set stamps with Memento Bamboo Leaves.  Highlighted with Sakura Glue pen and glitter.
Assembly:
  1. Mounted the image on the die cut with 3-D pop-dots.
  2. Mounted that on Bazzill Dotted Swiss Clover cardstock.
  3. Cut a piece of white cardstock to 4.25"X9.75" and made a "Twisted Easel Card" following the instruction found HERE.
  4. Mounted the cardfront to the folded card.
  5. The bottom portion is Bazzill Dotted Swiss Clover and Neenah Solar White cardstock.
  6. The sentiment was mounted at the top with 3D pop-dots.
  7. Envelope was done with stamps from Rubber Stamp Tapestry Pine Branch Border Set.
  8. The stick pin is a 1" boutonniere pin with a Czech pearl heart bead.
I didn't list where you can get the supplies I used because the main image is retired.  If you want to know where I purchased any of the products I used, email me and I will be glad to help on where you can get them the cheapest, free shipping, etc.

Oh my, Shirley! Love the detail in the pinecones - an elegant card for sure. It must look amazing IRL with the twinks and gold ink. Love the use of your ribbon in the cover image as well as the verse "stop". You always have that special touch of feminine elegance to your cards. Beautiful!
