Peace on Earth



On this run-up to Christmas I have decided to make all my own cards this year.  This is one of them. I started with a 6 x 6 inch square white card blank.

I then chose some patterned paper to make a matt for the background.






The tree (PaperArtsy) was stamped in black Versafine ink on some plain green paper and this was trimmed out as shown.





I then coloured some faux gem mesh with a blue alcohol ink marker and trimmed out individual gems and applied these onto the image.

The tree was adhered onto the base matt.

The sentiment was stamped onto white card, edged in blue ink and applied on foam pads.

Only 23 days left !

  12. Sid, thank you for your kind words on my blog. I look forward to following you! This Christmas card is stunning! Great juxtapostionin of the severe lines of the chevron and curvilinear lines of the tree! I like chevrons! Love circular lines! Mixing the trendy of chevron with an iconic symbol of Christmas. A great combo on so many levels! I'm off to look at more of your work!
