Christmas Tree Card Video

After all the finalists were notified about the Artisan Award, we decided to have a card swap at convention.  If you've participated in a swap before, you know there is always a certain amount of anxiety involved.  Is my card good enough?  Will people like it?  Well, imagine having to swap with Artisan finalists! 

I decided to re-create my tree card with current Stampin' Up product for the swap.  So, I made 25 of these babies!  (19 for the finalists and a few for Shelli and the team from SU)  I actually liked the way this one turned out better than the one I submitted for the contest.

And here is some exciting news…..I created a video to show you how I made it!  I am hoping that I'll be able to do more videos now that the kids are in school.   I'll be giving away the card that I created in the video to one lucky viewer.  Simply leave a comment here, on YouTube, or on my Facebook page.  One person will be selected at random on August 31st to receive the card.

    Melissa-
    Thanks so much for sharing how to make this card! I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
    I re-created it but am not sure how to send you a picture.
    I didn’t have the Peppermint Candy stamp so I substituted one of the new Brushed Bronze buttons and a bow made from Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine. I then made some Champagne Shimmer mist and sprayed the front of the card so it was sparkly. Even though mine is different- it’s still cute!
    I’m a SU Demo as well (I found your video on Stampin’ Connection). Thanks for sharing!
