Lovely As a Tree

This is one of my favorite all time stamp sets. So very versatile and I really love it done as a Christmas Card. I had to use the Big Shot Top Note Bigz Die and Saraha Sand cardstock for the main image. The tree itself is stamped in Always Artichoke then it is mounted on Always Artichoke cardstock that had the small pine bough stamped on it. I have a lot of layers on this one because that it then mounted on Chocolate Chip.
The base card is done as a Gate Fold, my new favorite type now that I have that marvelous Scor-Pal. I also used the new Chocolate Chip Designer Paper on each piece of the gate. Punches used were the Designer Label where the season's greetings from To You & Yours Stampin' Up! set is stamped, then sponed then mounted on a piece of Chocolate Chip punched with the new Wide Oval Punch. The new Alpine Ribbon from the Holiday Mini was placed on the side after punching with the Horizontal slot punch. I can see that I will be needing more of this ribbon. I also used Class A'Peel Stickers from Stampendous on the tree. I hope you like it.
