Is this sculpted tree truly a topiary? Or are there specific design requirements to qualify for that term? Regardless, I really like the tiers of holly for this tree and it is a unique image for a Christmas card. I was immediately drawn to this stamp set when I first looked at the Holiday catalog, and it was first on my list for my initial order. I love the versatility of the images in the set, and it will be useful for projects year-round.

This card was the second project that the South Burlington stamp club group created last week. We buzzed right through both projects and finished quickly; I think we set a speed record! Thankfully they liked both projects and had a good time.

I used this older sketch as the design inspiration for my card. I was happy to use some of the Night Before Christmas DSP for a couple of the elements. The colors in that paper then set the color scheme for the stamped image and the cardstock layers. I am pleased with how this all came together (if I do say so myself).
