Day Eighteen of my Countdown to Christmas

Hi everyone,

Well amongst all the cooking I am doing for my BIL's 50th Birthday, I have managed to squeeze out another card for you. Once again it is a card not using a Christmas set and for once not using traditional Christmas colours. I have to say I am getting a bit sick and tired of all the red and green - but when Christmas is over I know I will miss it.

This card is very similar to a card that I made at my very first workshop as a customer back in 1997. Instead of the row of trees we used the single tree that looks so much like a Christmas Tree and I think we used Old Olive to sponge in the oval. I cut the oval using my Nesties and then laid it onto the Whisper White. Then using a sponge I sponged Marina Mist onto the Whisper White. Leaving my mask in place I then inked up the tree stamp in Night of Navy and stamped it onto the card. Removing the mask I then stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy at the bottom. A very simple but elegant card I believe.

Materials Used: All Stampin' Up!
Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Many Merry Messages
Paper: Night of Navy, Marina Mist, Whisper White
Ink: Night of Navy, Marina Mist
Other: Marina Mist 5/8" Satin Ribbon.

Thanks for looking.

'Til next time
