It’s Easy Peasy Christmas Cards, Friday! Yipee!
Ah yet again, it’s another small adventure for me coming up with an Easy Peasy card for you today. I knew exactly what I was going to make but that elusive Christmas Tree Die set has walked off on me again. I kept it in a “safe” place which means…yup, it’s really safe because I can’t even find it. My idea could work with another shape but I’ll save it when I find those dies!

So off to the Easy Peasy drawing board once again! I realized that I hadn’t posted one of my fave Christmas cards from last year. I thought I’d do something similar for today’s Easy Peasy Christmas Card.

Card measures 6×6:
-Red card stock 4 1/4 x 4 1/4
-Black card stock 4 x 4

-Stamp image with embossing ink onto black card stock and heat emboss with white embossing powder
-(optional) Stamp image with white pigment ink to shadow first image. I had used a Stamp-a-ma-gig to do this.
-take a cloth and touch it to white pigment ink pad then smudge ink around the tree
-draw lines with white pencil crayon
-Stamp sentiment
-assemble and glue
-(optional) add bling

I love using black on kraft. I just love that look! I’m sure I could have even slipped in some kraft twine in there too! The chalkboard technique is really popular at the moment and I just love the look of it! Best of all about that technique is that it’s easy too. ;)

Note: the sentiment is by Amuse Stamps, Winter Waves (I bought it a long while ago so there’s a good chance that it’s no longer available)
