Cherry Crumb Chevron Tree

Posted on

Good morning! How is your weekend going so far? Mine seems to by moving along at light speed like it usually does. On a very happy note I did place my Spring Catalog pre-order this morning so I will have some neat sneak peeks to share with you in the coming weeks. Can you believe that the Spring Catalog is almost here?! This year has really gone fast for me, how about you guys?

For today’s post I have a card for you that I made the day after Thanksgiving, or Chevron Friday as I refer to it! The base of the card is Crumb Cake Card Stock. I stamped some snowflakes from the Snowflake Soiree Stamp Set in Early Espresso randomly on the base. The chevrons are created with a piece from the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack and the First Edition Specialty Designer Series Paper. I alternated them on either side and a thin piece of Early Espresso is adhered along the middle. I cut out a piece of Cherry Cobbler with the Delicate Doilies Large Sizzlit and adhered that on the left. The greeting is from the Greetings of the Season Stamp Set and is stamped in Early Espresso and I flagged the one end. It’s adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I really like the abstract tree look and I love the colors together. I hope that you are inspired by today’s card to make some unusual holiday cards of you own. Thank you for checking in with me and I hope that you have a nice Sunday!
