Hi Everyone! It's Holly here with a couple cards showing another way to use the beautiful tree stamp from the FLOURISH NOEL set.

On this card, the tree stamp provides a pretty shadow for the Create-A-Flake Four die cuts.
To keep the 'spokes' aligned, I placed a snowflake in the center of a large piece of scrap paper, then drew lines from the center of the snowflake, through the ends of the spokes, to the edge of the paper. I removed the snowflake, laid down the card and stamped the tree, lining up the top and trunk along the drawn lines.
The stars were simpler to do since I just stamped on the star die-cuts themselves. They were cut using
The edge of the card base was stamped with the tree as well and when matted, created a nice patterned border. The next layer was embossed using HOLIDAY MAGIC M-Bossibilities. Once stamped, and with the edges sponged using DISTRESS INKS, the stars were stacked and attached to the card front. Christmas Wonder from CHRISTMAS CUDDLERS  was stamped onto white card stock and trimmed down. The edges were sponged, a silver cord from my stash was tied to the end and it was attached to the card.

I hope you are inspired to try different ways of using stamps and see the versatility of this tree.
Thank you for stopping by!

Wow! Holly! These are gorgeous! What a great idea to use the tree as parts of a star! It's pretty cute with the little stars at the tips of the big one. Very, very nice cards. Love the colours!
