This incredibly wonderful stamp set is so traditional, I love it! This card makes a wow statement and comes together quickly. Using the Trimming the Tree stamp set from Stampin’ Up! with traditional colors makes me feel a bit nostalgic, like going home!

I chose not to die cut the tree, instead; I simply stamped it onto the Basic White card stock and then die cut with the Scalloped Contours Dies. I popped the Basic White panel up using Dimensionals over the top of the die cut Evening Evergreen Panel. Follow along as I walk you through making this card with ease.
