A blog devoted to the cards I make in my tiny upstairs space. When my sister stays there, she calls it an "artist's garret". I'm not an artist, but am an enthusiastic cardmaker - hence the title "Cardmaker's Garret".

A Simple Christmas Tree

For July's Christmas Cards All Year Round "Tree" challenge:

The tree was die cut from a scrap of leftover mixed media cs coloured with green Brushos. The sentiment is stamped and heat embossed. I cut a second tree out of white cs and slightly offset it to give the idea of a dusting of snow on the branches.

The background is mixed media cardstock painted in white and blue and splattered in white.

Stamps - Kaiser sentiment
Ink - ColorBox white
Paper - white and mixed media cs
Size - A2
Accessories - blue and white acrylic paint, Spellbinders Christmas tree die, Cuttlebug embossing folder, white embossing powder, green Brushos

  2. Simply beautiful Christmas tree with your heat embossed sentiment and love the painted sky background and your snow splatters and dry embossed snow backgroud. Your card would be fun to duplicate. TFS Susan. Hugs..
