Three Ways to Make Christmas Tree Cards {+ a GIANT Black Friday Sale!}

 Thanksgiving is just about here, but I have so much festive Christmas fun to share that I'm just going for it - are you okay with that? Today I have THREE brand new cards to share and they all feature the  Sparkle Trim Stamp Set from FSJ. (Spoiler alert - along with pretty much ALL my favorite products at FSJ, this stamp set is on sale during the Black Friday Blowout Bash - right NOW!)

For the first card, i embossed the largest tree on gold cardstock - I wasn't sure whether gold on gold would work, but I absolutely love it. Then I embossed the smaller tree in gold onto a white die-cut circle. A simple die-cut sentiment on a strip of vellum finished this card off, along with a few embellishments. (Gold, of course!) 

I liked the embossing so much that I tried it again - but this time I overlapped the stamped image. I love the way it looks like a variety of trees in a forest, but really this was all one stamp. Stamping off the edge of the cardstock gave it such a different look. 
For the third card I got INKY. I inked up the large tree with Lemongrass ink, and then tapped the stamp into Kiwi Splash ink (the darker green) before stamping it onto white cardstock. Next, I inked up the edges of the panel and blended the color in, fading it towards the center.
This stamp set has so many fun possibilities for handmade Christmas cards, and winter crafts. Remember, you can grab it on SALE right now along with a lot of my FAVORITE things that are at an amazing price right now. Can I share a few of my favorites with you? These are supplies that I turn to AGAIN and AGAIN on my projects, and you'll probably recognize some of them that I use A LOT.
