I do love a tree. All kinds of trees. Usually I choose more traditional trees in my crafting, but these little stamps from Memory Box called "Making Spirits Bright" really caught my eye.
The colour scheme of purple and gold is for this week's challenge over at Less Is More. I was thrilled that my acetate Christmas card was showCASed on the Less Is More blog, thank you so much for choosing me for this honour! For those of you who asked I about my acetate card, I used Stazon ink to stamp the sentiment and Herma tape to adhere the die cut holly branches to the acetate, so no mess on the reverse!
This card was just a case of lots of masking off to create layers. The sentiment stamp is by Kaisercraft simply called "Christmas sentiments" and of course I used a Tim Holtz die cut sentiment from the Handwritten Holidays die cut set. And I like using sentiment die cuts as props for my photos! The free standing sentiment is by Penny Black.
I really love these little contemporary trees and will probably use them to batch make cards to send to friends and family this year.
Well, I'm off to curl up on the sofa with my fur throw, it is so cold outside!
See you soon x
