Tree Angle Free Card Tutorial

In just two short weeks, Stampin’ Up!’s August-December Mini Catalog (formerly the Holiday Catalog) goes live. Beginning August 4, look for a brand-new catalog filled with a host of products for Halloween, fall, Thanksgiving, Christmas, winter and more.

(I’m working to get these catalogs distributed. Contact me if you don’t currently have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator. I’ll get a catalog to you.)

It’s Thursday and time for my Christmas in July feature. See the directions below for making this holiday card. I use a brand-new stamp set called Tree Angle in conjunction with the Stitched Triangles Dies and the Brightly Gleaming Designer Series Paper (a returning favorite).
