Merry Little Trees - Stampin' Up! Christmas Trees Dies

   The Paper Players Challenge is back with a new challenge today! Ann has given us a fun Tic-Tac-Toe board for our inspiration.  Pick a row or column down, across or diagonal and use those 3 elements to create your card.

  I chose the middle row down; Circles, Patterned Paper & Embossing to make my card.  I need to get going on Christmas cards so that was my focus for this card.  

  Apologies for the poor photo!  I was losing my natural light to photograph so I promise this card looks better in person!

  I used circles for the trees, the embossed patterned and the little gems at the tops of the trees.  Embossing is the embossed polka dots as well as the silver embossed sentiment.  And of course the patterned paper for the trees which I layered behind the circles with the trees cut out of them.  The Christmas Tree dies and Whimsy & Wonder DSP are definitely the stars of this card.

  Check out the rest of the Design Team and then share your creation in the gallery so we can oooh and aaah over it!

  2. Amanda, I adore this card. I love all the white, the embossed polka dots and sentiment and the color of those trees. This card is so happy! Happy Halloween!

  3. Which die and paper did you use on those trees? I want to CAS this card. I am so far behind on cards this year!

  4. Amanda, I love cute and CAS and this card is just perfect in every way! The dotted EF and ribbon finish off these trees perfectly! Awesome Holiday card!

  5. Amanda, I love your little trees with the DSP behind them. Of course, I love the polka dots, too. I also love the pastel colors - such a wonderful change from my normal Christmas palette of green and red!

  6. I love this! What a clever idea to layer the DSP behind the cutouts....and I LOVE that embossing too! I need to use that more often!

  7. LOVE your trio of trees and the fun colors!!

  8. Gorgeous! I love those trees and they look great inset into the circles. The dotty embossing also adds great co-ordinating detail and finished with the sweetest of bows too!

  9. Amanda, the soft simplicity of this card is beautiful! The circle pattern is subtly done to perfection. I love this.

  10. This is fun, fun, FUN, Amanda! I love the pop of color with those tiny trees and the polka dot background layer is a fun and playful touch. Love it!
