This morning I had a lovely friend over for a few hours and we made some cards together, well I made one and Julia made a few, but it is so much nicer having someone to discuss ideas with and not just talking to the card stock, which of course doesn’t seem to talk back.

Anyway I made this card for this weeks Just Add Ink #43 and also this weeks Clean and Simple Challenge #116.

If I was to do this again I would do the card smaller so there wasn’t as much open space.

Clean and Simple Sketch:

and Just Add Ink this week is Just Add CHRISTMAS, so here is my card:


The trees are stamped in VersaMark then clear embossed. the the stars or snow flakes are VersaMarked then embossed with a mix of Dazzling Daimonds and Clear embossing powder. The shape is cut out on my cricut using the new and limited release, Christmas Cards cartridge, and is placed on dimensionals.  The ribbon is one of the free ones that Stampin Up are offering at the moment.

    I like your cut out shape and how one tree is in front of it and one behind.
