Card of the day #5 - We Need a Little Christmas

I'm Card Captain at Michael Strong's Yahoo group this week.I'll upload a new card every day, and my 5th card for this week is a mini Christmas card - 3" high by 2 1/2" wide.

I tried to recycle here.
The card's basis was cut from an ad (very heavy CS, useful for small cards).
The tree's branches were all punched out of photo paper scraps, because it's the whitest paper and it resembles snow.

The card's front:
Black canvas textured CS
A 3D tree made of dozens of white branches, punched using Martha Stewart's branch punch, piled one on top of each other and glued together to create a snow covered tree
Basic Grey patterned paper - Jovial, just a thin scrap under the tree.
Clear, green and red blings

The card's inner side:
Basic Grey patterned paper - Jovial
Michael Strong's Cloisonné Christmas Tree stamp (small), stamped on red leather textured CS and heat embossed with black EP, cut with nail scissors and decorated using a white gel pen to resemble snow.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!

  1. You made beautiful cards this week, Dorly. Thank you for sharing!

  2. כמה חמוד!! איך מרגישים בו את השלג!
    אוהבת את העונה הזו ואוהבת את הכרטיסים שלך.

  3. this card is most effective Dorly; I love the punchouts. They must I imagine only be quite 'short' and you have gathered them all together most successfully; a lovely idea!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment, I really appreciate it.
