Christmas Tree

A clean and simple card for the Rudolph Days Challenge this month.  I'm determined to make a couple of Christmas cards each month this year.  Of course I said that last year too and even though I started off with a bang, I fizzled pretty quick.  Hopefully I can stick with it this year.

The tree is from Lovely as a Tree from Stampin' Up and the sentiment is from Hero Arts. 

Thanks for stopping by...........

This is so lovely. A great \CAS card. The tree is stately and I love the way you overlapped the red ink for the sentiment. I must remember to use some other colours of ink...I am quite boring and always reach for my black or brown!

Thanks for taking part in the February Rudolph Days Challenge.

Just lovely! I love your ability to pull out a punch with a card, CAS and all. Love the layout and your striped DP!

Bonnie said...

This is probably my all time favorite tree! It looks wonderful with the red! I hope we can both stay on track with those Christmas cards!

Hmmm, I think I said something about doing one or two Christmas cards each month back at New Year's and I haven't done a single one. Are you trying to inspire me or just give me a guilt trip? lol Fab card, Lynn, and I love the stripes! The twine is so perfect and I love how you stamped the sentiment right over the tree.

Another lovely CAS card. I do admire folk who make these. I am never happy with my own efforts. Kate x

Perfect Lynn..in my early days of stamping and stuff this was my favourite tree..I stamped it so much and now he rests in the bottom drawer with other stampin up stamps and I really should get him out..thank you for the memory and inspiration..

I love your clean and simple style of making cards! Nothing is ever over-done, and everything is always fabulous! What I like most about this card is that you stamped the sentiment right into the tree and it looks so cool that way! Awesome card!

I am with Carol. I just can not pull CAS off, most times. You amaze me. This is so cool.

Many thanks for your visit and kind comments Lynn. I love your card too and you’ve used one of my favourite tree stamps. Lovely layout and I like you’re use of twine too x

I fizzled last year too Lynn and trying really hard to do it this year, but God only knows if I will make it through all the months or not. I love this simple, but stunning Christmas card. That tree is so pretty and the red just brings it all together. Love, love, love this one! Hugs, Brenda

One of SU's best tree images, and I love the CAS look of this card so much. That gorgeous red & white stripe background is stunning with the simplicity of this lovely green tree. TFS & Hugs (KBO as Winston Churchill used to say!)

A beautiful CAS card, and a beautiful tree as well. The striped background and matching twine look great too.
