Using card stock in two shades of yellow for the card base and backing mat, the sentiment (cut twice and glued together) is glued onto the washi tape background while the background and bright yellow mat are adhered with thin foam squares.
A hint of what is to be found inside the envelope – “Find beauty in the small things” from the Alte New Whimsical Flowers & Quotes set – is stamped on the back flap in brown ink.

I love the sentiment “The holidays are a time to open our hearts” that is at the center of this card. The card was stamped with the Alte New stamp set Festive Foliage which allows you to stamp a fir tree with two to four colors.
I stamped this card from a piece of heavy white cardstock 5 ½ inches x 11 inches using a stamping platform so that I could position the stamps easily. I used a different green ink for the tree and the heart foliage stamps. The tree is Tranquil Tide, and the heart is Pear Pizzazz. The sentiments were stamped with VersaMark-Watermark ink and heat embossed with a gold embossing powder. The red heart is stamped using Real Red ink.
To create the tri-fold base I scored and fold the longest edge at 4 ¼ inches and 2 ½ inches. Once the tree was stamped on the front, I opened the card out flat and using a craft knife cut the heart out of the card front. Next, I refold the card and placed the cutout heat back in place and stamped the heart foliage. I also opened the card front, slipped a scrap piece of paper in and stamped the inside flap with the heart in green as well. I then put glue on the inside stamped heart section and with the cut-out heart in the tree front, closed the card and adhered the cut-out heart to inside flap. Once the glue had dried, I also stamped the back side of the flap and heat with green foliage stamp. With the inside flap unfold, but the front fold shut I positioned the solid heart stamp to be stamped directly behind the foliage hearts.
To finish the card, I folded the card and taped the front tightly shut to spray some gold mica mist over the front of the card for added interest and glued a small red ribbon to the top of the tree.

“The holidays are a time to open our hearts” is the sentiment that these festive gift tags have. These tags were stamped with the Alte New stamp set Festive Foliage which allows you to stamp a fir tree with two to four colors. There is a heat in the center of the tree foliage.
I stamped these tags from a scrap piece of heavy white cardstock 5 ½ inches x 3 inches using a stamping platform so that I could position the stamps once and turn the card to stamp a second image. The stamps are labeled tree 1, tree 2, heart1, and heart 2. I used a different green ink for each stamp. The tree is Pear Pizzazz and Tranquil Tide, and the heart is Lemon Lime and Emerald Envy. Two tiny heart stamps from my stash are stamped over the foliage. The smallest and most solid heart stamp was stamped with VersaMark-Watermark ink and heat embossed with a gold embossing powder as was the sentiment. The outline stamp is inked with Real Red.
Using a hole punch at the top of the tree I was able to add some red organza ribbon to finish the tag.
