Before I get to the card I have for you today, have you seen the Clearance Rack Update?  There are some really great prices on ribbon and Designer Series Paper.  Hop over there now by clicking on the Menu Bar at Shop.

Yesterday I shared a quick and clean card.  Apparently I have that on my brain because today’s card is a fairly clean and simple one as well.  However,  today’s card is a Christmas card.  My Christmas card recipients may see this card again!


Stampin' Up!, Whimsical Trees, Merry Snowflakes, Jackie Beers



The trees are stamped from one image in the Whimsical Trees stamp set.  There are a variety of trees in the set, in a variety of sizes and style.  I chose this one with the White cardstock since it has the circles on the tree.  These spots could be lights, snow,  or ornaments.  I choose to think of them as white lights and snow.

The sentiment is from the awesome stamp set named Merry Snowflakes.  (There is more mention of snow! )  I love the wording of the sentiment.  This one would work on the front or the inside of a card.  But I felt it matched the trees with the white area in what it says.

Ink and Paper and Extras

The three trees are what prompted the Shaded Spruce layer between the White base card and the white layer.  I originally planned on simply white on white for the card.  After stamping the far right tree using Evening Evergreen Ink, I thought it was a tad too dark.  So I stamped the left side tree using Shaded Spruce.  That color matched perfect.  The center tree is added by inking with Shaded Spruce Ink and stamping off before stamping between the trees.

The Sentiment is stamped using the Evening Evergreen Ink.  To ground everything I added the Evening Evergreen Open Weave Ribbon across the top.  The bow is placed at an angle as to not cover part of the sentiment.  Actually I really like the bow like this.  The finishing touch is a single Rhinestone placed on the tallest tree.
