I’ve been wanting to make a Christmas card that was created using minimal supplies and mostly white cardstock – thinking most everyone has an abundance of white in their personal paper stash. It all came together rather quickly – gotta love it when that happens! Once finished, I thought that this card might be a conglomeration of several cards I’ve viewed recently … there have been so many I can’t seem to clear my head of all the wonderful ideas I’ve seen. I guess I shall call it a loose case of too-many-to-name talented artists.
I did a lot of sponging on this card, covering the majority of the card stock with two complimentary shades of green. Then cut the brightness by dabbing a bit of very light brown ink on top of those greens.
See those little branches on the center panel? Look very closely … did you notice they are from the Lovely As A Tree stamp set? I inked only the tips of the single tree and stamped randomly around the corner of the cardstock. How wonderful to find yet another use for this fantastic set!
