Lovely as a tree

This is one of those stamp sets, that work through out the year. You can make the trees green, yellow or orange or just bare. And it makes great - and super easy - masculine cards too!

This is cased from a fellow demonstrator, who's name I forgot to write down and guess how many cards there are when you search "lovely as a tree". So, the idea is not mine, but it was such a great idea, that I wanted to replicate it for my Father's Day card. 

I know, Father's Day isn't until June! but guess what .... In Finland we celebrate Father's Day mid November, so I'm making my Father's Day card right after Halloween and before Christmas (gives a nice break from those 'theme' cards) :-)

And the greeting is not Stampin'Up! since they don't make any in Finnish ;-)
Although I have been thinking of ordering some custome stamps (the ones you can use for return address), but have not yet come up with any great sayings.

Now I know I said this was easy. Well I thought it was until I started making those white pieces. See I stamped the image first and then started punching them out. Had to make sure I punch them all at the same hight and same distance apart. Afterwards I though I should have punched them out blank and then lined them in a row and stamp the image using stamp-a-majic. Well... too late :-)
But I managed to make it work (lost only couple of tree tops in the process).

And hey, don't forget the 25% off of 25 stamp sets!!! The sale ends Monday!!!
