Christmas Time · Greeting Cards

Peace, Love and Joy

Hello Everyone,
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
My Name
