Hi everyone! Christmas will be here exactly two weeks from today! Today is my post day on the Simply Crafty SVGs Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project with you, a super cute Christmas card for my stash created with the Simply Crafty SVGs Christmas Tree Farm Box Card cut file. How about that sentiment… wouldn’t you agree that going to pick out the perfect Christmas tree made wonderful moments and warm memories?! Whether you were a child or an adult taking your children, it’s a wonderful time of the year!
I used some very cool star emboss resist paper for the background and inked it with several shades of blue distress inks, making the outside darkest and going lighter and lighter toward the moon.
I inked some light shadows across the moon with gray ink, colored the star on the Christmas tree with sparkle overlay marker, and gave the ornaments a little dimension with a white gel pen.
I stamped the front and back sentiments on white cardstock in black ink and cut them with a rectangle die. I layered the back sentiment on dark green cardstock.
And here’s one final look, flattened and ready to put in an envelope. Love, love, love this card!
