Day 11: Trio of trees

We're in the home stretch of the 12 Days of Christmas Cards blog series, and for this penultimate post I have a clean and simple card that features a trio of trees.

Supplies (all Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Christmas Sampler (Paper Smooches)
Paper: Mossy Meadow, Chocolate Chip card stock; Holiday Thyme Designer Series paper (DSP); Whisper White note cards and envelopes
Ink: Old Olive
Accessories: Pennant punch, Frosted Sequins, Ice White Pearl Pen (Viva Decor), Dimensionals, Glue Dots

I used the Pennant punch to make the triangle tree shapes and then cut and glued on strips of Chocolate Chip card stock for the trunks. I wanted the middle tree to stand out, so I used DSP instead of card stock, added a few Pearl Pen dots and adhered a silver sequin behind the top of the tree. The middle tree is also adhered to the card with Dimensionals.

I wanted to do something different with the sentiment on this card, so the front says "Fa la la la la," and the phrase continues inside the card with "la la la la." I just hope no one who receives this card complains that they got this song stuck in their head.

Check back tomorrow for the last installment of my blog series. And remember, for links to all of the cards posted as part of the series, check out the main 12 Days of Christmas Cards post. Thanks for stopping by!
