Ornamental Tree Card

Getting ready for the holidays!  I have a Christmas Stamp-A-Stack coming up and I have to come up with designs for it.  I did the following design for this month's swap group.  The theme was "Punch Art" where you take punched images and turn them into a design.  This was difficult for me.  Some people can take punched images and manipulate them into amazing works of art.  I decided to keep it simple.  I liked the idea of using punched out ornaments to make a Christmas Tree.


Please excuse the quality of the picture as I was rushing to get these out in the mail in time and almost forgot to take a picture.  I used Silver Glimmer paper for the ornaments and Champagne Glimmer for the star punched using the Merry Mini punches.  I used the tree stand from Embellished Events set stamped in Early Espresso ink.  The Merry Christmas sentiment from Pennant Parade set is stamped in Elegant Eggplant.  The base card is Elegant Eggplant and I embossed the Vintage Violet panel using the Framed Tulips TIEF.
