My son is an avid Snoopy fan so when I saw the November Stamp of the Month from Close To My Heart–Seasonal Trees–I knew I had to try making a Charlie Brown tree with the one tree image.
I didn’t really have a plan for the rest of the card other than I knew I wanted to keep it simple as the focus should be on the tree.
I did a strip of Glacier Cardstock to represent Linus’s blue blanket that they had wrapped around the tree and then I used the *NEW* Christmas Bingo Stamp Set to create the sentiment. This set has a lot of potential with all the wonderful words it contains. Plus, I really like the font! It’s a nice, easy to read cursive font.
The card still needed something. I found this Zip Strip (the 1/2″ border strips found on all of Close To My Heart’s papers–one side tells you the colors used in the papers and the other side lets you use it on your projects. Clever, right?!) from our now retired Beary Christmas Paper Collection. I liked that it offered a more uniform appearance to counter the whimsical tree. And it had Glacier lights in the string to tie in nicely with the Glacier I used at the base of the card!
Tomorrow is the last day to grab the November Seasonal Trees Stamp Set. Can you believe it’s already the end of November!? Wow! As always, you can purchase this set for it’s retail cost of $18.95 OR you can get it for only $5 when you purchase $50 or more. A pretty great deal!
