Greetings! Last Sunday I promised you more Christmas cards so here's another one! I had a lot of fun with this one, inspired by this clever sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch:
I love it! They do such a great job with their sketches!
I knew my object had to be a tree, so I pulled out the Festival of Trees stamp set. It's so fun to be able to stamp the tree and then stamp all the bulbs on in a different color and so easy because the stamps are photopolymer (clear)!
I wanted a larger sentiment and love the look and feel of this sentiment from the Wondrous Wreath stamp set. The script in the middle is wondrous! lol
I needed some light random embellishments to place on my card. I thought and thought, and then thought some more. Then I thought of something I hadn't thought of before! (Sorry, couldn't help myself) Snowflakes! Yes! That's it! So I went through the catalog comparing the stamp set I own to the current sets, looking for snowflakes and I found them in the Mingle All the Way stamp set. They are the perfect size!
The snowflakes are mingled in with the sentiment so I pulled out my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig and my Stampin' Markers in Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green and went to work picking out just the snowflakes to ink up. I used the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to see exactly where they should go. I think they turned out soooo pretty! I added just a bit of Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter to them and the little bit of shimmer catches the light just right!
I added a bit of Linen Thread to add a bit of substance to my tree and pulled out a pretty plaid pattern from the Trim the Tree DSP Stack. It has such a great variety in it!
That's it! Another clean and perhaps not-so-simple Christmas card! Thanks to the folks over at CAS(E) this Sketch for providing so much inspiration!
Thanks for stopping by!
