Celebrate


Here is my card for the CAS Design Team Winter 2011 Final Challenge (Round #3).  Round #3 Challenge is a photo inspiration.  I loved the green & white and the red & white striped candy in the photo and used that for my card below.  I stamped a tree image onto green cardstock and then pierced holes along both sides of the tree.  I zigzag stitched green & white twine down the tree, using every other hole.  I repeated by zigzag stitching red & white twine down the tree, using the alternate pierced holes.  I love how it turned out ... hope you like it too!

I stamped the tree in Garden Green ink onto Garden Green cardstock (subtle).  Using a paper-piercing tool, I pierced holes along both sides of the tree, 1/8" apart.

I threaded a length of the Peapod Twine onto the embroidery needle and stitched in a zigzag down the tree, using every other hole.  I threaded a length of Maraschino Twine onto the embroidery needle and stitched in a zigzag down the tree, using the holes that were left earlier.

I ran the cardstock through my Big Shot with the matching die-cut tree from Sizzix (Holiday Cheer).
I dry-fit the tree on my front card panel of Whisper White to determine where the sentiment should go.  I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement and inked the stamp with Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green Stampin' Write markers.

I rounded the top right-hand corner of the card front and adhered it to a card base of Cherry Cobbler (also top right-hand corner rounded).

I mounted the stitched tree to the front of the card, popping it up with dimensionals.  I threaded a piece of Maraschino twine through the mini jingle bell and tied a bow.  I mounted it to the top of the tree using a rolled glue dot.
