Lovely as a Tree Continues to be a Classic

Did you know that the stamp set “Lovely as a Tree” has been in the catalog longer than any other?   This stamp set has stood the test of time and continues to be popular.

I think it has staying power because the images are strong and realistic.  Trees and leaves are versatile to papercrafters and can be used to create Christmas cards,  as well as Sympathy, Birthday, Thank You, Thinking of You and more.

Add new trendy colors and the trees take on a new life. The images look great embossed, colored in, or stamped in a variety of colors.  Trees make a great Clean and Simple card for beginning stampers and can be stepped up to satisfy the most experienced stamper.


Stampin Up Lovely as a Tree Masculine Card Idea - Debra Simonis StampinUp

Cardstock – Island Indigo, Whisper White
Ink – Crumb Cake, Island Indigo, Old Olive
Accessories – 2-1/4″ and 2-1/2″ Circle Punches, Brights Enamel Shapes, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Snail Adhesive

This is a Clean and Simple (CAS) card which makes a great masculine card for many different occasions.  Just change the sentiment.

We have a Card Ministry at our church and a group of us ladies get together several times a year to make handcrafted cards that are sent out to members of the congregation.  We needed some masculine cards and I needed an easy design because some of the ladies are novice stampers.

I used this same layout on another card which I’ll show later this week.  If you need papercrafting supplies, receive a FREE gift from me when you shop online and use August Host Code VGTTXCBQ at checkout.
