Well it's official, Christmas is now only 25 days away, and I am still making Christmas Cards.
Today I am sharing two cards that were created not using images from Christmas Sets. They both were created using stamps from the very lovely and very versatile set called Lovely as a Tree. This set contains three beautiful tree images as well as three leaves. I reached for this set yesterday to make a similar card to my Dasher Card from yesterday's post using the pine tree.
This morning I reached for the tiny little three leaf image (pictured with card) from this same set to make the Christmas Garland on the second card.
I simply drew a random line with my green marker on white cardstock in the same ink colour I was going to stamp, and then proceeded to repeat stamping the leaf image along the line following its curves. I then took my Cherry Cobbler marker and added small dots as the berries along it, which I then covered with half pearls. I also chose to stamp my Greeting - Season's Greetings (Stamp from Many Merry Messages) just above my garland and cut out around this. I then mounted this onto my embossed and sponged background before mounting it onto my Real Red Card Base.
Similar leaf or foilage images can also be used to go around a circle outline and you have an instant Christmas Wreath, so don't despair cos there is always heaps you can do without having a Christmas image in your stamping stash.
Counting the days till Christmas
