{Avocado Arts} Very Merry



Today, the Avocado Arts Pit Crew is sharing projects using the November release, Very Merry Season. I started making this card by trimming the mat layers from patterned paper and stamping first and second generation sentiments across the bottom of the red mat. Then I stitched the two mats together and adhered them to the card base.


I stamped the present on several papers and trimmed them out by hand. I used the Cameo to cut out the base of the tree (or fireplace logs). To create the tree shape, I stacked the presents from the bottom up in different directions to make it interesting. They are adhered with foam tape for dimension and I topped the tree with a wood veneer star.


If you'd like to purchase Very Merry Season, just click on the graphics above. Avocado Arts would love to see you using their stamps! Remember, there's a publication incentive, too. ;) Don't forget to check out the following posts for more inspiration:


Thank you for stopping by today!
