Christmas 2009

PTI - Tree Trimming Trio, Signature Christmas

A good friend and I decided that this year we would make our Christmas cards.  The hardest part was deciding on a design.  I wanted one that could be mass produced rather quickly (I needed 100) and one that my husband would like too.  If you follow my blog, you have already seen some of the contenders, one of which won Honorable Mention at Papertrey, but in the end, this is the 2009 Glazer Christmas card.

I knew as soon as I saw the Tree Trimming Trio stamp set from PTI that I wanted to use this image for a Christmas card.  This particular tree is my favorite in the set but it is a large image, so I only stamped a portion of the tree in Ripe Avocado ink.  I then stamped the ornaments in Pure Poppy ink and added stickles for a little sparkle.

Yes, that is indeed a Martha Stewart pine branch border punch you see.  I also punched the star from some gold handmade paper I bought at the LSS.  The outside sentiment is from PTI's Signature Christmas stamp set.  I also stamped a sentiment on the inside which is from the Peaceful Poinsettia stamp set.

I stamped the envelope as well with a little Christmas flourish from an Inkadinkado stamp set I found in the clearance section at the LSS.

I have to say, I am pleased with the way these turned out and hope the recipients are just as happy. 


  1. What a beautiful card, can see why you love this one.

  2. Just beautiful Cibele!!! Not another border punch I need???
    I finally got Kara's pkg in the mail yesterday. The USP office was NUTS...Amy and I stood in line for EVER.

  3. What a fantastic Christmas Card I think that tree is amazing!!! Beth
