I made a Christmas card with the tree stamps from Rooted In Nature last year and wanted to make a different one for this year. I like when you can use non-Christmas stamps to create Christmas cards; to show their versatility.
Here’s last year’s one that was inspired by the catalogue back then…
And here’s the one I made today…
I’ve still got multiple trees stamped in various greens but this new card is way more clean and simple!
I made my usual card base from Whisper White Thick card measuring 21 x 14.5 cm, scored and folded on the long side at 10.5 cm to create a landscape tent fold.
I cut a piece of the Wrapped In Plaid speciality designer series paper to measure 14.5 x 6.5 cm and added that to my card base.
I cut a piece of Whisper White card to 14.5 x 5.5 cm and used 2 of the tree stamps from Rooted In Nature with Soft Sea Foam, Old Olive and Shaded Spruce inks to create my forest scene. I then added this to the plaid paper.
I stamped my sentiment from the Greatest Part of Christmas host stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink and then added a little bow tied with the Shaded Spruce & Gold ribbon.
Sometimes it just feels more appropriate to tell someone that you are thinking of them at Christmas time, rather than wish them a Merry Christmas. This card would suit those circumstances perfectly.
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s card. If you’ve got the time please give me a ‘like’ to let me know.
