Since I havent gotten as many Christmas cards done as I normally would at this point in the yr I went ahead and made a Christmas card using the O' Tannenbaum sets, one of my absolutely favorites. I love anything that suggest an old-fashioned Christmas and this tree reminds me of the trees that my grandparents had when I was growing up, and of the ones my dad would pick out for our house.
I used Ruby Red for the card base and the DSP is Holiday Treasures, another one of my favorites. I stamped the tree and sentiment on some Whisper White and used Chocolate Chip for the scalloped border. All of the edges were sponged with Chocolate Chip.
I used a label punch for the sentiment and attached some Ruby Red brads. The sentiment is popped up with dimensionals.
Its hard to tell in the picture but I used a gold gel pen for the garland on the tree and in person it has a nice sparkle to it. All of the coloring was done with SU Watercolor Crayons.
I forgot to get a picture but inside the card I layered Ruby Red on some Chocolate Chip cardstock. Using Versamark I stamped the tree image in the middle of the Ruby Red and then using Chocolate Chip I stamped the main sentiment over the tree image.
