Hey there, I figured I better get a move on my Christmas cards if I wanted to send any out this year.  Quite a few need to go in the mail so I want to go with simple layouts on some of them.

This tree is from an Our Craft Lounge set called Ole St. Nick.  It reminds me of our tree growing up and I absolutely adore the Santa stamp in this set!  This is a super easy card...the tree was stamped on white card stock, colored with Copic markers, cut out then popped up on foam.  Clear Spica then clear Glaze pens were used on the ornaments to give them a little pop.  The background card stock was scored diagonally on a ScorPal.

Light sponging on the die cuts and background panel, rhinestones and ribbon from my stash complete the card.  It doesn't get much easier than this!  Now I need to get busy coloring panels for the new OCL Valentine's release.  Wait until you see the new stamps coming out...I can't wait to play with them!

Copic coloring:

Tree:  G21, G29, G28, G24, T4, T2  Ornaments:  R02, R08, R05  Inside image:  G21, G29, G28, G24, R02, R08, R05, T4, T2, T0
