Oh, Christmas Tree(s)

     Two quick and related cards today.  The first one has a digi image that I got at From the Heart Stamps and the second is done with a simple Christmas Postage punch (maker unknown) and die cuts.


      I used ProMarkers to color the green portions of the trees, then added some sparkly texture paste to them.  I used a die set from Spellbinders to cut the image and inlaid it into another die cut.  The sentiment is also cut with that same set and inlaid into a larger cut.  The silver trees were stamped onto acetate, heat embossed with silver EP, and peeled off.  I added a bit of color to the baubles with ProMarkers.

     This one is even simpler, made with layers of leftover die cuts from the first card.  The sentiment is done with an Elizabeth Craft Designs die and the silver trees postage stamp was punched from metallic paper.

Nice simple designs, NanaConnie. Sometimes it is just nice to make (and receive) something that you didn't fuss over for hours.
Christmas blessings,
