Christmas Tree 05280
For my Christmas Tree card today, I actually started it on Monday for the Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS302) to add music or music notes, but I didn’t finish until today when I saw the sketch challenge (SC518). I took a small liberty w/ the sketch by making the center rectangle a different shape.

Since this is mostly die cuts, it really was easy. 🙂 I die cut a large white panel w/ a matting basic die then sponged the entire panel using the greens & blues of a Kaleidacolor ink pad. The center section was die cut using the center of the ODBD Vintage Flourish die (the rest of the die was used to die cut the white overlay). I stamped the tree on the center cut out and the O Christmas Tree Carol on the rest then attached the white die cut overlay and the tree section back inside. That saved a lot of time since I didn’t have to mask anything.

I added a white die cut Gilded Gate across the bottom and the stamped & die cut greeting. The ornaments on the tree were colored in w/ a white gel pen then I added a little Wink of Stella.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
