Totally Trees for Create with Connie & Mary

Totally Trees for Create with Connie & Mary


I seriously don’t know where this week has gone! I thought once the boys were back at school I would be straight back into a routine, but it’s not working out that way! It feels like I’m just chasing my tail! Lol! I did manage to make my card using Totally Trees for Create with Connie & Mary in plenty of time though.

Totally Trees for Create with Connie & Mary Tracy May Stampin' Up!

I did think I would have problems with this challenge due to Delightful Dijon. I don’t find it terribly delightful to be honest! But, as soon as I sat down to make the card, an idea popped into my head and I went with it.

I started by stamping the trees from the totally awesome Totally Trees stamp set in Emerald Envy. Then I topped them with a star (also from the set) stamped in Delightful Dijon. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments, which I totally recommend if you don’t already have it!


I used Delightful Dijon again for the sentiment. Above the sentiment I added a strip of Soft Suede card stock and some Gold Glimmer paper for a bit of bling. Then I layered the card front onto a piece of Soft Suede stripy DSP from the Neutrals DSP stack.

I’m really pleased with the way the card turned out! What do you think?



  1. What a perfect trio of trees! The bit of sparkle in the horizontal strip is perfect and the stripped background piece adds such nice interest!

  2. Simple. Clean. Perfect!

  3. Love your trio of trees! Clean and simple perfection!

  4. Same stamp set, same colours – totally different card! I love it Tracy – a great CAS Christmas card that would work really well for mass production! Love the horizontal strip and the touch of glimmer – they ground your trees beautifully.

  5. I really didn’t think I wanted this set, but you are quickly changing my mind! Three great cards this week using it! LOVE the touch of glimmer and Teeny Tiny Wishes greeting is PERFECT for it! Great job with the color challenge this week!

  6. Love this Tracy! I would love to share this on my blog for ‘My Crafty Friends Monday’ ! Please let me know if you would prefer that I didn’t share it (of course I give you credit and link back to your blog!).
