Simple & Elegant with Designer Series Paper

Before I get in to the details of the card below, this is a reminder that this is the last day to save up to 25% off on select items in celebration of World Card Making Day. More info below.

I have to admit that at times I buy pretty paper, then don't use it because I hate to cut it up. Silly, right? I am going to make an extra effort to use up all the pretty paper I have purchased so far this year. It certainly helps out when you need cards in a flash. All products Stampin' Up!

When I saw the Moroccan Designer Series Paper in the 2016-2017 annual catalog, it made me swoon. So many of the colors the paper coordinates with are colors I use regularly, so I had to have it! I think the piece I used on this card is quite striking with Real Red accompanying it. It is included in the buy 3, get 1 free DSP sale this month.  

I cut one tree from the Santa's Sleigh dies out of Emerald Envy cardstock, then another tree from Very Vanilla cardstock. I layered the 2 pieces so it almost looks like snow on the branches of the Emerald Envy tree. I embossed the top tree with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I layered the tree and sentiment on top of a piece of the DSP. The base layer of the card is Very Vanilla. I cut 2 of the word "peace" from Real Red cardstock and layered one on top of the other to create more dimension. 

Supply list:
