Monday again so soon? We left town over the weekend so naturally I’m behind again. However, I made this card before we left so I thought I’d share it today.
When I was looking at the Christmas cards I’ve made so far I realized, as I always do, that the simplest cards hold their appeal for me longer. So I thought I would try a very simple and clean design with the focus on one of my favorite images from Power Poppy’s October holiday release. Check out Bottlebrush Holiday to see the rest of this stamp set. It is so darling, and this image in particular is exceedingly quick and easy to color.
I stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White and colored with these Copic markers:
The trees are decorated with Stickles glitter glue in Stardust, Silver, and Frosted Lace. The Frosted Lace doesn’t have a lot of sparkle to it, but it adds a nice texture to the garland. The eyelet border was die cut on the card base, and the image panel was adhered over that after trimming the edge with Fiskars Paper Edgers (scissors).
Inside is covered with designer paper and a defined white space for message writing. “Happy Christmas” is also part of the Bottlebrush Holiday set.
I hope you enjoy! I got to color, die cut, and use designer paper so, even as simple as it is, it makes me happy. Have a good day!
