Merriest Trees plus A Walk in The Forest Designer Series Paper creates fun Christmas Cards for your seasonal needs


  • Stampin' Up! Merriest Trees and A Walk in The Forest Designer Series Paper
  • Last day to Join Stampin' Up! for $64.35 and get $125 in products 
  • Two Live Upcoming Card Classes 3 & 4 November 2023

I'll bet you missed the A Walk In The Forest 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper on page 6 of the September - December 2023 Mini Catalog.  I missed it in my initial mini catalog order, and I'm so happy it was still available when I finally discovered it.  It is such a joyful set of holiday designs with one side suitable for use beyond the holidays.  I used the Merriest Trees Dies and the Stylish Shapes Dies to add images that compliment this paper.  The sentiment is also from the Merriest Trees Stamp Set.  My color theme for this card uses Balmy Blue and Pretty Peacock with Basic White.  The ribbon is also White, with an iridescent sheen that can look blue but shimmers to pink in some lights, making it a versatile ribbon with many colors.  I used three of the Lost Lagoon Faceted Gems from the Faceted Gems Trio Pack, which complimented the Pretty Peacock elements nicely.  There's still time to order this Paper and create your handmade Christmas Cards that reflect your style during this holiday season.

    The basecard for this card is Balmy Blue Cardstock.  Then I added a layer of Pretty Peacock Cardstock, and, next, a layer of one of the prints from A Walk In The Forest Designer Series Paper.

    Next, I used one of the circle from the Stylish Shapes Dies to die cut a Pretty Peacock Circle.  I used dies from the Merriest Trees to die cut a Basic White Tree and stamped a tree trunk in Pecan Pie and used the Merriest Trees Dies to die cut it.  I added the tree to the Pretty Peacock Circle.

    To finish my card, I used the Stylish Shape Dies to die cut a Balmy Blue sentiment label and stamped a sentiment from the Merriest Trees Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I finished the card by adding an 1/2" Iridescent Ribbon under the image layer, and added a little bling with Lost Lagoon Faceted Gems from the Faceted Gems Trio Pack. This is another easy layout, perfect for creating bulk Christmas Cards which we are likely to need during the Holiday season.
