Sweet Poppy Stencils "Fir Trees" Christmas Card


Another Christmas card, this time using Sweet Poppy Stencils goodies.

For this card, I started by stamping the Sweet Poppy stencils large and small "Fir Trees" in Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink using first and second generation stamping.

I used some remaining ink on a finger dabber with the Lavinia Stamps "Hill Mask" to create the landscape and ground the trees.

I then used "Shadow Grey" Ranger Archival Ink through the Sweet Popp7 "Holly Back Plate Stencil" fading the ink out towards the top and the left of the card.

I used Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink to stamp the sentiment, which is also by Sweet Poppy and is part of their "Festive Phrases" stamp set.

I mounted the image on to red card ,then on to a white card blank.

Finally, I added dots of Liquid Pearls to the trees, to look like Chrismtas baubles.  The colours I used are: Ruby Red, Brilliant, Blackberry and Gold Pearl.


  1. Absolutely amazing stamping and stencil work Sam, I always love the way your cards turn out x

  2. Love this one,the subtle holly stencilling behind the for trees is beautiful

  3. Beautiful Christmas trees, and the softly stencilled holly backplate design looks great behind them, also some pretty coloured baubles added to the trees, and finished with a lovely large sentiment. x

  4. Very pretty Christmas card - love the fir tree stamps and the soft colour scheme.
