I think this might be the first Christmas card I've blogged this year and it nearly didn't make it. After experimenting with different backgrounds, I made one I really liked using smooshing with acetate, then the stamping of the trees went wrong so feeling disappointed I began again. This one I don't think is as good as the first but anyhow I stamped the trees and assembled the card, then shock horrors, there was an inky smudge on the bottom so I chopped that bit off and finished up with a card that's smaller than it should have been.
My card was inspired by the colours at CAS Colours and Sketches. I scribbled SU! markers onto a piece of acetate, misted with water and used that to paint the background. This was a good excuse to use some nice Christmas tree stamps that I bought to use last Christmas but never got to it. Again, I inked the stamps with the markers and misted with water before stamping. The sentiment is heat embossed in silver.
