…looking up at our beautiful tree…

Sharing my final design for my bulk Christmas cards, this one featuring the lovely Flourishing Tree stamp from Penny Black.

I paid a visit to a friend yesterday who runs a craft store and she let me rummage through her box of yet to be listed items and when I saw this stamp, I knew it had to come home with me.  It was perfect for a super quick and CAS card, just what I needed to finish mine for the year.

Over at Christmas Card Throwndown they’re letting you pick a challenge from 2017.  I took the opportunity to find the perfect colour palette for my card, which I did with the January colours of cream, aqua and brown.  My cream is in the watercolour paper I’ve stamped my image onto.  I used brown and aqua ink to stamp and also matted the watercolour paper on aqua and brown paper.  I think it is a lovely colour combination and one I’d not have thought to do without the prompt of the palette.

As my card features a Christmas tree, I am entering it in the current challenge at Allsorts.  Being so totally CAS I’m also linking it up at Hiding in My Craft Room, where I’ve got the Christmas twist all wrapped up too!
