Stampin Up with Lovely As A Tree

Did you know that Stampin Up’s “Lovely As A Tree” set has been around since 2006?!  Generally, sets are retired about every two years.  THIS set has made the cut year after year, and I can see why!!

Not only is it truly ‘lovely’, but it can be used for so many different occasions and holidays.  I can’t think of any other set in my craft room that is as versatile as this one.

I just received this set last week, and I knew I had to tinker with it!  Based off a tutorial by Dawn I used a piece of window sheet (clear acetate) to create this card:
