Oh Christmas Tree

Well its nearly upon us, just four days to go. And still I find that I am short on hand made cards. People expect them now. So here are three simple black and white Christmas cards with just a hint of colour.
I love the three designs of Christmas tree's that Marion has used in her clear Christmas stamp sets.

For this one, I stamped and cut out the three Christmas trees, added a different coloured gem for the top of each one and mounted them on the card with foam pads. My card was too narrow for "With Love" sentiment from the Christmas scribble writing set, so I chopped it in half. Each word then sat perfectly between the trees.
I left two thirds of the next two cards with "white Space", stamping on the bottom third only.
For this card I stamped straight onto the card and again on another piece of card, cutting out two trees which I then mounted using foam pads. This time I added clear gems to the smaller trees and cerise gems to the larger to look like baubles.

The same principle was used for this card. I added small black gems for the snowman's buttons and used a clear gel pen to highlight his hat.
May I take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy Christmas. I hope that Santa brings you everything from Sugar and Spice that you have on your wish list and have a great New Year.
