One lone pine tree....





Hello Cherry here with another simple country Christmas style card. I fell in love with this Pine Tree stamp from The Rubber Cafe. I knew it would work perfectly with Melissa's technique that I shared awhile back using the Scrappy Happy glue on the back of your chosen stamp. It worked perfectly and really brought the detail out on the tree. I used the Hunter green you re so fine glitter which is a gorgeous color! It pairs so well with a Christmas red. I really kept my card simple because I wanted my image to stand out. I used one lone button and a bit of ribbon with bells. Other than that a few layers of papers and that was it. I can't wait to use this stamp to make a few wintery tags...maybe with the tree flocked. So many fun ideas floating in my head! Hope you enjoy! Thanks for letting me share. hugs, cherry

Wow! SO stunning, Cherry! I absolutely adore the glittery tree image. Looks amazing with the button in the center, and I adore the homey papers and doily in the background. FAB!

Oh, Cherry! Your creations are just so beautiful! I've just spent the last 10 minutes perusing. LOVE! And I love that you're getting all geared up for Christmas with this beauty! Jingle bells just say Christmas all over them, too. I, too, just used them on a soon-to-come, Wplus9 Release creation ;). Thank you for being a constant source of inspiration! Hugs!
