Twinkle Trees

Hello Stampers - I love Twinkle Trees at Christmas time!  Do you?

Well Jess did okay yesterday.  She slept a lot which I expected.  Today will be the big day as I am sure it will be rough.  I am hoping she sleeps a lot again today and if she does I will spend some time in my craft room.

Today I got the idea for my card from my Take Ten magazine.  I plan on using that magazine a lot over the next few days as I have to work ahead for the next 2 months since I have a lot going on.  I love that magazine to get layouts and ideas.

My card today began with the tag.  The original card had a tag on it so I used the idea and my Twinkle Tree stamp set to create my card.  I stamped the tree using Garden Green.  I then used Cherry Cobbler to stamp the swirls.  I mounted this panel onto my Cherry Cobbler tag.  I used some of the 1/4" natural trim with gold for the ribbon on the tag.  I tied a piece of 1/8" gold ribbon around the natural trim and tied a bow.  Now that my tag it made I needed to address the card base.  I used a piece of Very Vanilla to make the card base.  I attached a piece of This Christmas Specialty designer series paper as a layer.  I attached my completed tag to the right hand side using dimensionals.  I then used the Merriest Wishes stamp set for my sentiment.  I punched it out using the retired Duo Ticket punch.  To create my layer I used a piece of Cherry Cobbler and cut it a little bigger than the sentiment layer.  I used a retired corner punch to mimic the corners of the sentiment layer but you can do the same using a circle punch.  It was also attached to my card base using dimensionals.  Here is my completed creation.

Thanks for visiting me today.  The weather is going to change for us this weekend and will be more Fall like.  I am looking forward to the cooler weather, how about your?  Have a Super Saturday and I hope you enjoyed my Twinkle Trees card today!
