It's word week at Just Us Girls
and I bet you can guess what word Nancy chose.
Very appropriate, don't you think? The only problem is which tree stamp/die to use. I got a cutie from CP in my SOA box and had to try it out.
These are not the colors you normally think of for a Christmas card but that tree called for something different. It took me forever to figure out a background that didn't overpower the tree. I tried out a number of things and then *ping* - why not stamp ornaments? They are from Neat and Tangled, as is the sentiment. Charcoal ink and slate cs were just what it needed for some contrast.
The rest of the design team and guest designer Theresa Gregory
have some wonderful Christmas trees for your enjoyment and inspiration. If you make a card and enter it in the gallery, you may be chosen Chic of the Week and a possible guest designer spot.
I hope to see you there.
