Not long anymore, crafty friends, and then the holidays are upon us! I’ve seen that some of you have already put up and decorated the tree, so that’s what my card is about today.
Short anecdote before we get into the video: in my family, the tree is usually put up the weekend before christmas only, and since I’ve moved away, my parents wait to put it up with me the day before christmas. Last year, I didn’t make it home because I was sick, and my parents left the tree standing until mid-February when I could finally come and see them! I hope that this year, I won’t catch a last-minute cold that will prevent me from flying and I’ll be able to enjoy decorating the tree with my family.
Once more, my Letterpress trick comes in handy. You don’t need this tool to stamp multiple times into the same place. You can line up clear stamps with an acrylic block – Jennifer McGuire does it all the time, only I am not as coordinated as her and that’s why I need the help. As you can see, the Letterpress works great in stamping exactly and preserving all the details.
And since I am a traditional gal, I went with gold “ornaments” for my tree and red presents. I just love the color combination and I’ve already decided to wrap all my presents this year in metallic red paper. Now, if only I had a clue as to what to give to my parents. They already have everything … I think I need to go onto another Amazon safari 😉
I hope you enjoyed today’s simple project. Have a fun weekend and see you again soon!
I’m sending this card off to the following challenges: Creative Friday “Tannenbaum” (Christmas Tree); Time Out Inspiration Photo which has the wonderful traditional christmas colors and the circles are matched by my pearls.
