PPA112 Pennant Parade 3-D Tree

Stampin up rubber stamp pennant punch parade holiday mini catalog
How about a Clean and Simple PPA Challenge this week?  This week's Pals Paper Arts Challenge (PPA112) suggests only one detail . . . lace.  Add a pretty lace ribbon or use a punch to create a decorative "lace-like" border."  I opted for the Stampin' Up! Lace Ribbon Border Punch (122362).  Use your imagination as you play along this week . . . use any brand of products you want!

STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:

  • Stampin up rubber stamp pennant parade punch christmas card idea catalog This tree offers so much WOW in so little time!  I stamped the tree from the Pennant Parade stamp set three times and cropped using the Petite Pennants Builder Punch.  The tree flattens so that it fits in an envelope.
  • Score each tree down the middle, bend and adhere.  The Stampin' Up! Simply Scored Scoring Tool made getting the tree scored in the perfect spot a breeze.
  • For a reliable hold when adhering the tree, I like Multipurpose Liquid Glue (110755). 
  • Love the look of the tiny red rhinestone?  That's a Stampin' Up! Jewels Basic Rhinestone colored with a Sharpie.  For a visual reference, watch my video tutorial.
  • Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Terry Wise introduced me to the adorable 3-D tree during the Founder's Circle Swap.  Her card and my inspiration are below.  Thanks, Terry!

  5. Love this card but am having difficulty figuring out how to do the tree. Would you be willing to do one of your one minute to wow video’s on this?

  6. Love this! What a great idea!

  7. Hi, I like the card and know I’m thinking of buy the punch and stamp set to do thanks a lot:)

  8. How clever and cute! I just love it! I need to get this set!

  9. Adorable, Mary! I can’t wait to try this!

  10. This is delightful, reminds me of an accordion tree we learned at Regionals a couple of years ago (sample at http://www.idyllwildestudios.blogspot.com December 10, 2009). The striped paper gives it some real pop!

  11. LOVE LOVE LOVE this card Mary – the 3-D look gives this card that WOW factor for which sooooo many of your cards come from. Thanks for sharing and would love to see this one in person (wink-wink!-Maybe like next Wednesday…..).

  12. Grace Lange-Way

    Mary – you are unbelievably creative. This is just the perfect card for Christmas. The 3D effect is fantastic and it will be easy to mail. The recipients can just “fluff” up the tree once the envelope is opened.

  13. I LOVE the 3D tree! I was trying to figure out how to do it and couldn’t figure it out. But I hadn’t used the frilly pennant – it just didn’t look good with the straight edged one. Thanks so much for sharing – I will be changing my class card and CASEing this 😀

  14. Great idea – can’t wait to try it!

  15. Very nice, Mary!

  16. Very clever!

  17. wannabcre8tive

  18. Hi Terri: Just finished a new WOW video. Your wish is granted! I’ll post it on my blog tomorrow (and Twitter and Facebook shortly).

    Hugs, M
