Trimming the Town

Today I'm sharing an easy card featuring the Trimming the Town product suite.  This card is suitable for all levels of stampers.  I'll admit there is some fussy cutting for the houses and trees, but the Designer Series Paper makes it easy to do that!


  1. Cut Pool Party cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and fold in half to form card base.
  2. Cut Designer Series Paper 3" x 5 1/4" and adhere to the top of the card base using Stampin' Seal.
  3. Cut Whisper White cardstock 3" x 5 1/4" - gently tear a strip off the top on a bit of a curve.
  4. Adhere larger piece to the card base using Stampin' Seal.
  5. Stamp sentiment in bottom left corner using Misty Moonlight ink.
  6. Cut out 2 houses and 3 trees from the Designer Series Paper using Paper Snips.
  7. Adhere trees in the middle of the card - 2 are adhered using Stampin' Seal and one is adhered using Mini Dimensionals.
  8. Adhere the two houses using Dimensionals.
  9. Cut out a wreath from the Designer Series Paper and adhere to the house using a Dimensional
  10. Adhere stars to the top of each of the trees.
