Rocket Christmas

Just had to get one more in before bed. I'm off in a minute to make a mug of Ovaltine, snuggle into my bed with my book 'The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo', it's brilliant.

Anyway.... here is my rocket tree card. The Rocket Christmas set of clear stamps. Take a selection of textured card and stamp the different shapes on the stamp set on the reverse of the card. Cut out with scissors - no need to keep it neat. I cut mine out slightly larger than the stamped image. Now turn the pieces over, edge them with contrasting coloured ink pads and arrange them on a prepared base card.

Once you are happy with your design start sticking them down. I have stuck two or three down with 3D foam pads to give it some depth.
Add some gems, stamp and cut out the base as before and stick in position. Make a shrink plastic tag and stamp the greeting, shrink and attach to one of the raised sections with some pretty ribbon.

It's easy to do and you can make your tree really tall and slender or cute and fat by adding or taking away some of the shapes. Just another way of using the stamp set (this is my favourite!). I love these colours too, I even wear them!

I saw this card in the glitter pot last week and loved it, it's really nice and so was the other similar one! Hope you had a lovely xmas.
