Trendy Trees Birthday


Do you like the Sweet Pea tree pattern paper with the Trendy Trees stamps?  I'm not sure about this card.  It may just be too many trees or too busy.  Actually, I'm loving the "B" sides of these Sweet Pea designer papers the best - lots of little patterns in popular SU! colors.  This pack is from the winter mini catalog from Stampin' Up! available through April.

Project Notes:
  • I used the Stamp-a-mah-jig to line up the trees and trunks.  I always shy away from this tool but it is really easy and goes fairly fast.  Since it is essential for this set, I went ahead and stamped a template in Staz-on ink on acetate then it will be even faster next time it is used.
  • To save ribbon, the ends are trimmed with pinking shears rather than being wrapped around the card.
  • We-R-Memory Keepers Corner Chomper does a great job rounding edges on the white paper and through all the layers on the bottom of the card - just one punch on each corner.
