WPlus9 | Stamped Tree Shape Card with Holiday Trimmings Stamp

Hello, friends! I hope you are having a great stamping week! Today I have a simple to make Christmas card that features images from the new Holiday Trimmings stamp set by WPlus9. This set was also a STAMPtember exclusive last year, so you might already have it in your stash!

CARD DETAILS

This is a great set if you like to mix and match and customize images to your liking. I used just the ornaments and compiled them into a Christmas Tree shape. I wanted to stick to traditional Holiday colors so I went with red and green. I used Last Leaf and Appletini as well as Gala Red and Cranberry Crush inks.

I started working on this card by stamping the sentiment, Merry Christmas, in black ink. This one comes from the Hand Lettered Holiday set. Next, I stamped bottom row of ornaments forming the base of my Christmas trees. You can make your tree smaller and have more white space on the card by skipping one line and having the shape consist of 3 rows only.

I did stamp one of the ornaments upside down, but I kind of liked it and keeped that ornament as is (after I added the ornament topper you can’t even tell it was stamped incorrectly).

I tried to alternate shape and color to make this card look more interesting. Once my tree shape was done I used filler elements and stamped them in same colors as well as black making my ornaments multicolor.

I trimmed my panel to 4 x 5 ¼” and foam mounted onto an A2 side folding card base. I thought about adding gems and at one point added a strip of patterned paper, but later decided to go without any additional embellishments and keep this card as simple as it was. What do you think?

    1. Yana, yes I love this. I always love everything you create. It is funny thou, it took me quite a while to find the one that was upside down, it blends right in, if you didn’t tell us, I wouldn’t of noticed it, lol. I am a glitter, glam girl personally so I would of added a few gems, that is just my style, but I think it is just BEAUTIFUL, thanks for sharing, it gave me an idea to do for the last few cards I have to do so thanks for that.

    1. What a cute card and a great idea! You’re right … I can’t tell which ornament you stamped upside down! Glad you kept it in!!!! I have a die that’s a small wreath … might try this idea with a wreath instead of ornaments!
