A tree for all seasons

Start of the card parade:

Here is a cute set of cards using the Sunshine Designs cube All Seasons Tree RS006 CU (lg) from The Stamp Barn. I used the exact same layout for each card and changed up the Cuttlebug embossing folder for the background on each, the sheer ribbon colour and the colour of glitter frame.




And here is the colour chart for all 4 trees if you want it. Simply Right Clink on the image and save it to your computer. When you want to use it - print it the full size of a letter piece of paper and you are good to go.

To make the glitter frames, you use 1/4" wide Terrifically Tacky Tape and run around all edges of the stamped image paper piece. Peel off the red protective tape and then sprinkle the glitter that you want over all of the tape. Simply tap off the excess and you are done!
A great way to store the glitter that you use frequently is to put it in Rubbermaid container with an airtight lid and use a plastic spoon to scoop the glitter over it. When you tap off the excess - it goes right back into the container, throw the spoon in and seal it up for another day. Nice and Easy! For these, I used the Martha Stewart fine glitter - it comes in a great range of colours and is very nice to use.
Until next time - have a great day!
