The card I am sharing today is one of the projects we made at the Christmas Cards class I've been teaching. The design was inspired by a bag from the Simons store I got last year. There were letters in lieu of falling snow and then a triangular Christmas tree made out of Christmas wishes. I thought it was a spectacular idea and I had done a version last year using the Calendar Alphabet set, but then when I opened the catalogue this year and saw that we had a letter cluster in the Confetti set, I immediately knew I had to make a new version of this idea. The confetti stamp makes it so much simpler to recreate the card!
As you can see, I used other pieces of the Confetti set to stamp the card base and Tempting Turquoise panel, then I tied some Artichoke seam binding in a bow. Even though there's no Artichoke anywhere else on the card, the color still ties in very nicely with the Pear Pizzazz green.
I used our fabulous shimmer brads at the top of the tree, and some of the bitty buttons with the matching punches at the top of the card. Remember that this is a very option to create buttons in any color that you may need for your projects. Simply punch some cardstock or paper and layer underneath the clear buttons. The white scallop border was created with the Chain (name?) punch, which I glued underneath the Tempting Turquoise cardstock so that only the very edge would show. It is definitely smaller than the Scallop Edge punch, so it gives you a nice alternative if you love scallops as much as I do.
Speaking of which, to create the scallops at the right of the main image, I punched a few circles with one of the Bitty punches and lined them up under the Whisper White cardstock to create scallops.
