Can Simple Saturday be simpler? This card has no stamping athough a Christmas greeting could easily be included.
The colours in the Holiday Lounge designer series paper , page 162, may be a little non-traditional but the colours are fabulous together. They include Taken with Teal, Ruby Red, Sahara Sand and Basic Gray.
The patterns in this designer series paper work well as backgrounds for your Christmas cards or in this case, as the card image itself. I cut the paper to just one row of trees and then embellished the card by layering and adding a few accessories.
The base of the card is Basic Gray, then I layered a piece 1/4" smaller in Kraft and then a 1/4" smaller piece of Taken with Teal. The trees are layered onto Kraft and Basic Gray pieces 1/4" larger.
Finally, I added three clear Rhinestone Brads in the middle size. The Basic Gray tafffeta ribbon was adhere to the back on each side and then two pieces of Kraft Taffeta ribbon were tied around the Basic Gray piece. A quick and easy card! If you start your Christmas cards now, think how ready you will be by December!
