Season's Greetings


Today i have the Christmas card i promised you yesterday! I am linking this up to Moxie Fab's Holiday Card Challenge.

I'm using a new stamp i got at a scrapbook show a couple weekends ago. I thought this tree was really cute!!

I stamped the tree in brown ink on watercolor paper. Then i colored it with distress markers and water! One side of paper had torn when i got it out of its binding and i liked it, so i tore the top part, but left the other 2 sides alone.

Next i pulled out some orange cardstock and inked the edges. I adhered some jute ribbon to my cardbase, then adhered the tree panel to my card. I stamped the sentiment Season's Greetings in brown ink at the lower right, below the tree.

Last i adhered a length of rusty star's. I picked this up a couple years ago at Hobby Lobby in the mini tree decoration aisle.

Have a great day!!
