VC Rocks Blog Hop FMS166 Festival of Trees

Hello, Friends!
Merry Christmas!  Welcome to the first Holiday VC Rocks Blog Hop!  You may remember that I participate in VC Rocks, a fun group of wonderful ladies that meets during the summer and uses Stampin' Up products to make cards, scrapbook pages, and other crafts.  I always try and join their blog hops during the summer because the ladies make such wonderful goodies!  This year they are having a Holiday Blog Hop in December.  Even though I've had an awful week with my back, I wanted to get to join.  You can see everyone's Holiday projects by going to
When you go, you'll see the participants in the blog hop.  Click on a design to go to the blog featuring that card for a special treat.   Then, come back to the main VC Rocks page to go to the next card. 
My card features the Stampin' Up stamp set, "Festival of Trees," and the matching "Tree Punch" in the Holiday Catalog.  I had the idea for the three Christmas trees for awhile.  I just hadn't been able to make it into a card.  When I saw this week's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, I knew it would be perfect for my Christmas tree idea.  I'm really happy with the sweet, country Christmas look of this card.
 Although my ribbons on my card are retired from Stampin' Up, it would be easy to create this card using current products like Bakers Twine for the ribbon on the side and the current Venetian Crochet Trim.

Because of the pearl bling on my card, it fits the challenge "Bling It On" on Simon Says Stamp, as well. 
Now, be sure to go to to see the other Holiday cards and projects!
Happy Stamping! 
I used the following products from Stampin' Up to make this card:
Festival of Trees Stamp Set
Garden Green Classic Ink
Versamark Ink
Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede Card Stock
Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
Tree Punch
Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Emboss Powder
Victoria 5/8" Crochet Trim
3/8" Taffeta Soft Suede Ribbon
Basic Pearls
Stampin' Dimensionals

Well, Angela, I have resisted buying the FOT stamp set and punch, but I fear with this card you have made resistance futile! I love how the lace ribbon and pearls make it even more elegant. TFS! Elizabeth K
