Stampin’ Up! Perched In A Tree Holiday Card

The Perched In A Tree Stamp Set and the Aspen Tree Dies were used to create today’s card along with a watercolor panel as the backdrop. I love this pretty little bird and the die cut aspen leaves are amazing cut from Distressed Gold 12″ x 12″ Specialty Paper!

I started by creating the watercolor panel using Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper. A wet-in-wet watercolor technique was used to create the background in Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody and Balmy Blue inks. Because this is a background panel, I simply dropped in the inks on the wet watercolor surface.

The large oval tree die was die cut and I lightly blended some Smoky Slate along the edges of the tree trunks to add some interest to the trunks. This die cut panel was then adhered to the watercolor background.

Several leaves were cut using the dies from the Aspen Tree Dies set in Distressed Gold 12″ x 12″ Specialty Paper and the bird was stamped onto Basic White cardstock in Smoky Slate ink then colored in using Stampin’ Blends in Crumb Cake, Smoky Slate and Petal Pink. A Stampin’ Write black marker was used to color in the bird’s eye and beak. I also stamped and die cut a tree trunk. The pieces were arranged and adhered to the card front along with a sentiment label.

An additional sentiment was added to the inside panel then this panel was adhered to a mat in Old Olive and this unit was adhered to the inside of the card. The envelope was decorated using the “watercolor” and “dotted” stamps from the Perched In A Tree Stamp Set. The card was finished off with a few blue Glossy Dots.

I had so much fun playing with this stamp and die set and I think it makes for a very pretty card. Although I’m calling this a “holiday” card, it could easily serve as a friendship or thinking of you card also. You can find the Perched In A Tree Bundle on Page 46 of the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. This is definitely a bundle that you’ll want to add to your stash!
