Even Trendier Trees!
Update! After posting one of my favorite cards, with all retired colors and papers, I decided it was time for trendy trees to move forward and embrace Stampin' Up!'s new color palate. So here is an all-current version of last Wednesday's card.
The cardstock are all new in-color shades: Concord Crush, Poppy Parade, Peach Parfait, and Pear Pizzazz. I broke out an all-new level 3 hostess set, Playful Pieces, to create the pattern on the layer of Peach Parfait. TIP: If you haven't had time or money to buy the fabulous new designer series paper, this is an excellent way to create your own!
My trusty Stamp-a-majig came to my aid, lining up the leaves with tree trunks. Vintage Vogue contributed the perfect sentiment. Two final touches came from the Ticket Corner Punch and two lines of paper piercing, perfectly aligned thanks to the Mat Pack and Paper Piercing tool.
