So, once again, I have a Christmas card for you! I love this Christmas Tree stamp. Last year, I had my Christmas cards all planned out in my head… and then Unity released one of the Kit of the Months with this BEAUTIFUL stamp in it! So then I had to make ALL my Christmas cards with that stamp!

This stamp came in this kit:

And, because it is such a beautiful image, I have to use it again. Just because!



I stamped this image, and wasn’t 100% thrilled with how it stamped. My ink just didn’t cover as good as I would have preferred on this image. But instead of trashing it… I added water to my image and spread around the green ink and made a water colored look to it. 

What do you think?

Here is last years card with this image:

The green wooden planks on the first one look so perfect with the tree. I'd like to make this same card for Christmas---I need some simple ideas.
Happy birthday!

Happy happy birthday to you...even if you don't share your cake!! These Christmas cards are so pretty and a sweet traditional look. I really like the soft watercolored look on your current card and the wood background is gorgeous!

I like it very much. Sometimes the things we think we mess up on, turns out to be one of the better ones.

Love that beautiful tree! Pretty cards! The water color look was a great save of the card that didn't ink up well... looks like you intended it!
