Countdown to Christmas #4

For Countdown to Christmas #4 I’ve created a project with a vintage feel.

Countdown to Christmas #4. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

Using Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla creates something a bit different to the normal greens and reds.

A tree from the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set is stamped tone-on-tone onto the background.

If you’re making a batch of these, my top tip would be to stamp a whole sheet with trees and then cut it to the size you need.

Three trees are stamped onto a separate piece and then cut out using the matching Pine Tree Punch.

Lengths of Early Espresso Ribbon and Scalloped Lace Trim lay wrap around the stamped layer.

These co-ordinate with the circles that sit on top of them.Countdown to Christmas #4. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

Finally, the three trees are stuck onto the circles and the whole piece is raised using Dimensionals.

This is a great project for creating in bulk. You could also add embellishments or sparkle too.
