2 more cased cards

After I posted yesterday I headed to my craft room as I had 2 more cards I wanted to case.  Both of these cards use the Lovely As A Tree set.  I am so glad they did not retire this set as I love using this set in the fall and winter.  You can create some beautiful cards with this set. 

The first card I cased was created by Jenn D.  I loved how she highlighted her masked area with piercing.  I created a circle template just like I did yesterday to stamp my trees.  After stamping my trees I stamped the single large pine tree.  Then I used a plastic circle canvas that I bought at JoAnn's to pierce around the stamped trees making sure I began and stopped piercing at the pine tree.  I did place my saying too high and should have it down more towards the corner.  Like the looks of this tree for a different look.  Here is my creation.

Stamps: Lovely As A Tree, All Holidays Paper: Handsome Hunter, white Ink: Handsome Hunter, Real Red Accessories: plastic circle canvas (JoAnn's), paper piercer, red grosgrain ribbon, sticky tape, crystal effects

My second card is actually a case of a case.  I saw this card posted by Stampin' Mo and knew I wanted to give it a try.  I liked the simplicity but elegant look of the card.  Here is my creation.

Stamps: Lovely As A Tree, All Holidays Paper: Always Artichoke, Mello Moss, white Ink: Handsome Hunter Accessories: white Gelly Roll pen, paper piercer and piercing template, ribbon (JoAnn's), sticky tape, crystal effects, dimensionals
Well I am headed back to my craft room to work on some deadlines I have.  I am thinking I will only do a few more Christmas cards and then move on to some winter cards.  Thanks for looking and have a great Sunday.

Hi Robbie!
You visited my Blog today and asked for a snowflake tutorial. The way you do it is by using VELLUM instead of the Red paper!

I really like these two cards Robbie. I have this set too and it's so versatile.

I especially like the first card with the pierced circle around the trees - great idea!
