Countdown to Xmas: 25 Cards, 25 Days - Day 18

Today, I went with a Clean and Simple card.  I found a stamp that I purchased back in 2004, so to commemorate its 10th anniversary in my stamp collection (probably one of the first stamps I've ever purchased), I made it the central focal point of today's card.

Here's a close-up of the tree:

  • Red Card Base: 4.25"W x 11"H, scored at 5.5" mark
  • White card stock for the front (approx 4.25"W x 5.5"H)
  • Stampin Up Christmas Tree
  • Small round stamp for ornaments (I used the dot from an "i" from an alphabet set)
  • Copic Markers
  • Tsukineko Versamark Ink
  • Wink of Stella Glitter Brush Pen, Clear
  • Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder
  • Spellbinders A2 Mat Basic Dies
  • Stamp the tree in Tuxedo Black ink.  Color with Copic Markers (three shades of greens, two shades of yellows)
  • Stamp the sentiment below the tree in Versamark ink and emboss with Liquid Platinum powder.
  • Add the dots on the ornaments and emboss these as well.
  • Add Wink of Stella to the tree.
  • Glue on the red card stock.
These would be super easy to mass produce and give away as sets of cards.
