As Lovely as a Trendy Tree!!!

I actually made a card using the Stampin' Up! "Trendy Trees" set!! Shocker I know. And I didn't even copy it from any one's blog or from SplitCoastStampers!!! Shocker again!!! I was getting to the point to where I was going to have to do a bit of shameless copying!!! But this idea came to me and I ran with it right away!!!

I ran a piece of card stock through the Cuttlebug folder. I sponged the edges with Garden Green. Then I cut a layer of Garden Green card stock for behind that textured piece and I layered that on top of a folded half sheet of white card stock.

I stamped the trees on white card stock. I did have to use the Stamp-a-ma-jig to get the tree trunks lined up just right. A little white was showing on mine and I left it. I may go back with the Chocolate Chip marker and fill it in but I just might leave it as it is. After all, it IS a handmade card!!!

I cut the trees out by hand and glued them in place on the card. The words "thanks so much" came with that set. I stamped them on a scrap piece of white card stock and used the Word Window punch and punched them out. I sponged the edges and glued it in place on the card.

I actually like the way this card turned out!! It's about time, huh??? But there is still a card using this set on someones blog that I just LOVE and I may just have to copy it. Every time I think about the "Trendy Trees" set I think of that card. It's stunning and of course now after telling you all that I WILL have to make it!!! I haven't copied any one's work in a LONG time so I'm about due!!! LOL

So here you have it, a "Trendy Tree" card I actually like!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting,
