This sites challenge focus is to keep your entry as clean as possible. I decided to go with two colors only, white and red. Since I am creating my Christmas cards now, I went with that theme. I started with embossing the white cardstock mat with a dotted Darice embossing folder to simulate snow. I then die cut a tree with Elizabeth Craft “5 Part Pine” die. It’s one of my favorites because you can assemble the parts in so many ways. There is a YouTube video that will give you lots of ways in which you can use these 5 parts.
I decided to add some glitter to the bottom edge of each bough to give it a little sparkle but still stay very clean and simple. I then die cut my sentiment tag with a Spellbinders scalloped oval. I also die cut 3 tiny snowflakes that come with the Elizabeth Craft Designs “All Seasons Tree” die. I use this die set often in so many ways. I added some glitter dots to the center of the snow flakes and put two on the sentiment tag and one on the top of the tree.
I decided to add a little red bow and used a larger red mat behind the white embossed one. I think it made a sweet and “clean” Christmas card.
