Christmas words 2 and 3 ...

I've been on a roll this afternoon!  Having designed and created a card late this morning I then came up with a variation on the idea and a variation on the variation!!

This is the first variation, this time I created a Christmas tree stencil and used a collection of happy stamps to 'colour' it.  I then die cut "Christmas" in three colours - cream, Bermuda Bay and Salty Ocean, layered them together ... this is it:

For the variation on the variation, I used the stencil to create the tree using the happy stamps, die cut Christmas out of the card and replaced it with a silver die cut Christmas. Which do you prefer?

I'm going to enter these into the "Less is More"  challenge 'Mostly Words'.



  1. Now this is really beautiful,really striking modern card. Love the way you have created the Christmas tree,great technique.

  2. Love the clean and simple look you have created.

  3. Love this idea Elaine - 2 stunning creations and may need to be CASED.

  4. These are lovely and both nice, but the first one has the edge for me as it looks more contemporary.

  5. Such a clever design, Elaine! Love the 'happy' tree and die cut Christmas. They are both fabulous - I would lean slightly towards the first as I like the dimension of the offset die cut :)

  6. Brilliant yet again Elaine... I love those different colours stacked on the die-cut!
    Thanks so much
