Paper craft project no. 55: Oh, Christmas tree!

2013-09-13 CAS Oh Christmas tree
Here’s an A2 card I made for the Merry Monday Christmas Card Club Challenge #74. The challenge calls for using white and green + woodgrain. The Christmas trees also look like silhouettes, so I’m linking this up also to the CASology Week 61: Silhouette challenge.


To create this card, I first stamped the woodgrain background in vintage photo (a neutral color). Then I repeatedly stamped two different Christmas tree images in emerald green. I stamped another Christmas tree on cardstock, cut around it, and then used foam dots to adhere it onto the base so it pops up. Next, I stamped the sentiment in emerald green ink. Finally, I used my black soot distress marker to hand-draw the running stitch and create a border around. This is one of the quickest cards I made — took under 10 minutes to create.

Stamps: Christmas trees, sentiment (STAMPlorations); woodgrain background (Stampabilities)
Inks: emerald green (Ranger Archival ink); vintage photo (Tim Holtz Distress ink)
Other: black soot (Tim Holtz Distress marker)

Welps, unlike yesterday’s blog post, this one’s a shorty ;-) Enjoy the rest of your weekend! I’m off to create more cards!
