Another Christmas card finished but this time around a very simple understated card. There are some people on my card list that don’t like a lot of fuss or anything. So I tried to go simple and under stated and this is what I came up with.
I am actually quite please with how this turned out and I definitely will not have to pay any access postage on this card.
As with most of my cards this one started out with my searching for a sketch that I would like to use and this sketch from CASe this Sketch
was just the ticket. I could have fun with it and I can see this becoming a favourite of mine. To make this card I used an old Sizzix Christmas Tree Large die to make a stencil and stuck it down to the paper using some painters tape. Then I got out my Peeled Paint Distress Ink and a sponge dauber and using the cut out from making the stencil I sponged the Ink up the tree to give it a little dimension.
Once I had completed this I used a pink sparkle pen to make the tinsel and I found some iridescent circle stickers of various sizes in my stash which I used to represent the baubles. I then used my Cuttlebug to cut from gold paper the words using the Kasiercraft Christmas Word Dies. Once this was adhered and before I put it on the card front I sponged around the edge of the card base using the same Distress Ink I used on the tree and that completed my very simple card.
Thanks for stopping by and looking at my creation. And as always I would love to leave you with this thought before you go:
Unfortunately this is me at the moment.
I have so much to accomplish but I have no desire to do what I have too so I am doing what I want to do instead! Anybody else do this?
Have a Happy Crafty Fun filled kind of Day
