One of my favorite sets that has a tree theme is called Evergreen and today I decided to use it to create a Holiday card – Everygreen is from last year’s Holiday Catalog and whilst not featured in a current Catalog, it is STILL available for purchase online…click HERE to find it!
And my Blog Candy winners from last week are announced below!
Today I used Evergreen to make a card that is a little bit different, featuring Burlap Ribbon tucked beneath a layer shaped using the Chevron Punch which creates a fabulous feature full of texture…
The card base…is Old Olive onto which I added a very cool layer that I shaped using one very cool punch!
The layer…is Early Espresso and I used the Chevron Border Punch that you can find on pg 23 of the Holiday Catalog to make that cool shaped border – click HERE to find that punch…
And then I wanted to add some texture and so adhered a piece of 1 1/4″ Burlap Ribbon (pg 18 Holiday Catalog) underneath it before adding it to my card base…take a look at that beautful texture…
Next my white layers…I added a strip of Whisper White cardstock onto which I stamped a sentiment using a stamp from More Merry Messages – this was another set that was featured in the Holiday Catalog last year but is STILL available in the online store – click HERE to find it!
The tree…uses two stamps from the set Evergreen – the first image is the actual tree stamped in Old Olive ink – and then I used another stamp that has that tree definition, and stamped it using Early Espresso ink onto the green tree – this is called two-step stamping.
I trimmed my image to size and added it to my card base using Dimensionals…
I just love how natural and earthy this card turned out and that texture is a real wow factor!

One thought on “Evergreen Chevrons…”
Sarah, I’m digging the burlap behind the chevron punch! That is a great look and very inspirational! The burlap looks so pretty and natural with the evergreen. Awesome card!
