I have been doing all of these fall cards and can you believe that I haven't pulled out Lovely as a Tree ONCE?! I have been having so much fun with all of my new stuff that I have neglected my poor, classic stamp sets! This set is so great because you can use it for any time of the year and it is great for masculine cards as well.
For the trees, I adhered a strip of Crumb Cake that is 2 1/4" x 5 1/2" with a temporary adhesive onto the Crumb Cake card base. Then I colored the trees with my markers and stamped them several times. When I pulled up the smaller piece of cardstock there was a space where the ink didn't hit the card base, but it is okay because it is completely covered by the strip of Early Espresso Core'dinations Cardstock! I had a lot of fun coloring the leaves and cutting them out. They are stamped with Early Espresso ink on Watercolor Paper and colored in with More Mustard and Cajun Craze using my blender pen. I then curled them a little bit before I adhered them to the 1" squares (which are popped up on Dimensionals). Little things like that add so much to a card!
