Holiday Card

Hello!  The inspiration for this Christmas card was the Sketch Challenge at Retro Rubber Challenges.  I did turn the sketch to make a horizontal design.  The tree image from Let It Snow set by  Creative Clear Stamps (dates back to 2009) was inked 3 times with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copics.   I decorated the trees with Gold and Silver Metallic ornaments simply made with hole punches.  I used a vertical sentiment from Repeat Impressions Stamps heat embossed with Silver EP.  I edged the panel with Silver Metallic marker before attaching to a white card base.

Retro Rubber: Challenge 74 Time to Sketch. Have had Tree Stamp since 2009. The sentiment stamp is over 1 year old or older. 
The House That Stamps Built: Anything Goes Challenge O2517
The Paper Players: PP368 Tic-Tac-Toe challenge.  Used row 1 down -Tree, Christmas, Gold/Silver

Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa

I like those bright trees against such a clean, white background. Using the hole punch to make the decorations was a great idea and has worked well. Thank you for joining us at both Retro Rubber and The Paper Players this week.

What a wonderful addition to your stash of holiday cards. The trees are so festive with their metallic ornaments! Embossing the sentiment follows through with the metallic look! Thanks for playing along with Retro Rubber this week. Hope you will join us often!!
