Today I’ve created a clean and simple Christmas card that is easy to mass produce. All the items I used can be found at the Catherine Pooler store AND are linked at the end of this post. To create the tree, I masked off a triangle (I cut masking paper with scissors) and applied the negative space to my card panel. Then I stamped various images from the Holiday Mittens and Candy Cane Lane stamp sets, removed the mask and my Christmas tree was born.
I added a bow to the top of the tree using the coordinating die, stamped the mittens onto some vellum and used the coordinating die to cute it out and adhered it to my card base. To see the trick to adhering vellum without the glue showing, click HERE. I added a strip of Peppermint to the bottom of the card panel to ground the tree – not really- my tree wasn’t perfectly lined up – ha ha ha ha ha. All the inks I used are Catherine Pooler inks and the exact colors I used are linked below.
