Shaker Shapes: Trees

Click here for Maile's card

I loved how Maille Belles used the Shaker Shapes: Tree die and Sparkle and Shine Additions stamps to create a flat card (non-shaker) so I made a set of 4 for my holiday mailing list. Her card is shown.

After making four cards, I used the 'leftover' trees to make 4 tags.

 I CASED Maille's  design, but added a few stamped stars to the trees.

Card Supplies   - PTI, unless noted
Stamps - Sparkle and Shine Additions, Holiday Wishes
Inks - Pinefeather; Raspberry Fizz; Aqua Mist; Summer Sunrise; Limeade Ice
Papers - Rustic White, Dark Chocolate; Bo Bunny: Mistletoe Collection
Dies - Shaker Shapes: Tree (tree and light strings)

I cut the tree a little across the bottom to allow it to fit onto the rectangle (Stitched Rectangle die)with enough room for the corner sentiment. The small circle was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with gold EP before punching a hole to insert Pure Poppy Baker's Twine.
The little string of lights is adorable, so I added them onto the trees using Pure Poppy, Summer Sunrise, Spring Rain and New Leaf inks.
