Be Merry card by designer Patty Folchert

The tree stamp in this set reminds me of the Peanuts Christmas Tree, so I love it. I used the new clear stamp set from Hampton Art and Art Impressions paired up with some brand new Jillibean Soup Alphabet Soup II papers.

Be Merry card by Patty Folchert

I chose four coordinating papers from the Alphabet Soup collection first for the card base layers. Two border strips on top and bottom in yellow stars and typography and two border strips on the sides in turquoise. Then I stamped the tree and sentiment image in black ink onto watercolor paper and set aside to dry. Then I chose 2 more papers to make the banners and added a sticker from the Holly Berry Borscht collection.

Then I watercolor painted the tree and sentiment as shown and let dry. Once dry I fussy cut the tree and added a vellum border mat and attached to the card base with 3D foam dots.

Then I punched the Be Merry sentiment out with a scalloped circle punch and attached it with 3D foam dots also.

Pretty simple card, now I just want to find a blanket and wrap it around the base of the tree.

Be Merry,
Patty Folchert
