Trendy Tree Tag

  Today I've got the last project we did at my Christmas class last week.  This is a fun little tag using the Festival of Trees stamp set and matching punch.  This one uses the colors that are found in the All is Calm DSP.

  The tag base is Lost Lagoon punched with the scalloped tag topper punch.  Then a layer of Whisper White with some strips of All is Calm washi tape.  It's so easy to mix and match looks with these colors and the washi tape.

  The large tree is stamped in Pear Pizzazz with silver for the ornaments.  The photopolymer stamps makes it really easy to line up.  Next the tree is punched and adhered to the tag just slightly hanging off the edge.

  The really neat thing about this tag is the mini trees.  You make them using the same punch as for the large tree!  Just punch out whatever color tree you want, in this case I have one in Brushed Silver and one in Lost Lagoon.  Then using a Post It note hold your punched tree and slide it into the tree punch lining it up so that you have a small version of the tree and punch.  Do it again with the other color of cardstock.  Now you have mini trees!  So cool right?  The only thing that I did was trim the trunk of the mini trees down a bit so the scale would look better.

  The mini trees are layered with dimensionals; the Brushed Silver one has a single dimensional and the Lost Lagoon one has 2 stacked to make it higher.

  The final stamping is a star in silver and the greeting from And Many More in Lost Lagoon.  Add a Smokly Slate taffeta ribbon for the tie and you're finished!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
