Christmas Tree Warmth and Cheer Washi Tape Card

by Joanne James5. December 2016 19:27

Happy Monday everyone! I've had a busy start to my week with deliveries and appointments but did manage to catch up with a couple of friends for a festive afternoon tea, which was lovely. I have a quick card to share with you today  - this one is from one of last month's classes where we were using the Santa's Sleigh bundle. This was our warm up card and features the traditional colours that the Paper Craft Crew are challenging us to use this week:

Visit the Paper Craft Crew and play along with Color Challenge 221.

I got out the washi tape and set to work - here's my card:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

O Christmas Tree -  The tree framelit in the Santa's Sleigh Thinlits set makes for an elegant Christmas tree, and does double duty when the negative space is used creatively too. On this card the focal point is the absence of the actual tree, as opposed to the tree itself. 

Warmth and Cheer Washi - Here the tree is decorated with Warmth and Cheer washi tape, simple strips of colour onto the Crumb Cake card base. Perfect within the Garden Green top layer, to add to the feeling of foliage.

And A Star - I finished my card with a stamped sentiment, tied twine bow and a metallic gold star.

A great simple card, easy for mass production - and don't we all need those at this time of year!

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

That's all from me; I'll be back soon with another project; until then, happy stampin'!

I really like how you used the Washi Tape behind the die cut, Joanne.  It's a clean & simple card, but packs a punch with the details.  Thanks for joining us at the Paper Craft Crew challenge.  ~Deborah
