Rustic Winter Festival of Trees card

 Hello, the Christmas card is up here! I know you are distracted by the two handsome guys in the other picture, so I'll just wait for you to look at them. That is my son and his son. Yep Pride and Joy, known as Steve and Eric.

OK, ready for the card? Sure, sure, it is cute too. This is the Festival of Trees and Tree Punch bundle that is featured in the Holiday Catalog for just $28, shown in Early Espresso ink and embossing powder. I also used the wonderful burlap ribbon--which I cut in half, the long way, and pulled lots of threads out of it to give it loads of texture.

I added dots of Dazzling Details in gold to the front tree and popped it up on dimensionals. This is the card I swapped at Unite&Excite event Stampin' Up! sponsored in Chicago area on September 6th. So I can attest that it is a good one for making multiples, and there aren't any bumpy buttons that will add to the postage expense.

 I can't find my pictures from the event, maybe I loaded them onto my Ipad? I'll keep looking! It was great fun, networking with other area demonstrators. I got to talk about Stamp Clubs and made the group laugh, and I was limited to 7 minutes, so I don't think I put anyone to sleep. I'm counting it as a success. I left the event and went straight to the airport to meet my darling grandson, so definitely an exciting day!

More photos to come--Happy Stamping!
