Project 438: A modern color Christmas card

It is official: I'm starting my Christmas card makes! I wanted to ease my way into the cards this year so I decided to do some sketch shopping to get inspiration for a few complicated ones while I work out what I'm going to do for the bulk-making.

The colors at Color Throwdown and the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch were perfect inspiration.

The trees are heat embossed and die cut. The stamp set is almost 2 years old - I got it in a Michaels sale after Christmas. Which makes it elligible for Retro Rubber's anything goes challenge!

The background is blended using Distress Inks and then die cut. I added gel pen white snow blowing from the left to complete the sketch. The sentiment is also at least 18 months old and is heat embossed a floral vellum paper that reminded me of snow. I added some pearl stars just for some texture. Big fan of how it came out - now to make a zillion more Christmas cards!


  1. I'm a big fan of this man, love the challenge combos you have done here. As always your blending makes me so happy. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber, always fun to see you in the gallery. Cx

  2. I like your gorgeous patterned trees. They look great against that dark, snowy background. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber this week.
