Glitter Trees

Sometimes simple is better and now that I'm a Mom I'm finding this to be more true everyday! With this latest release from DRS Designs, many of the cards I made were of the Clean and Simple (CAS) type rather than the layered look that I love. It's been difficult to find adequate time for stamping, working full time at my real job, and being Mommy all at the same time. Therefore, I seem to be exploring the CAS aspect of card making more often these days!

Today's card is definitely CAS! The glittered trees stamp I've used as the focal point is DRS Designs new Vertical Triple Tree stamp (876H). I stamped it in blue ink and masked off the edges with Post-It Notes before sponging blue ink around the image. Once I took the Post-It Notes off I had an elegant white frame all the way around my image. I then stamped Warm Wishes (611D) in the empty space at the bottom. I matted this stamped piece with blue cardstock and added a blue brad in each of the upper corners. I think this piece really took on a lot of elegance once I added Stickles to the trees to create a Winter scene. 

For the card front, I used white cardstock and stamped it with the 4 In 1 Snowflakes (096D) using the stamp-off technique. Unfortunately, these snowflakes are hard to see in the pictures. I then used a decorative border punch to the right side and adhered it to a piece of light blue cardstock.  I tied blue ribbon in a knot to fill in the white space next to the decorative border and attached the entire card front to a dark blue cardstock base.  Overall this was a pretty quick and easy card to make.  I love all the blues together and the glitter is just the icing on the cake!

Thanks for stopping by!

I love the blue and white color combo and the gold edge on the ribbon is so pertty! Great sentiment too!
