Not only do I LOVE making Christmas cards, but I also LOVE Christmas Carols!! (well actually I LOVE everything about Christmas!!) My favorite carol is O Holy Night, but I went in a different direction and used my favorite tree die from Tim Holtz called Woodlands...
I found an ugly piece of Alcohol Ink paper in my scrap bin because suddenly it didn't look so ugly when I thought about how it might look cut out as a Christmas tree...and I was right! I think it looks just perfect with all the green shades and touches of blue (think snow). I made a frame using the 2 smaller dies from The Greetery's Nordic Frame Dies and then marked off the edges on my background layer with the frame so I would know where to stamp the O'Tannenbaum from PTI's O'Tannenbaum set. I used my MISTI to help me stamp the song title straight in a light gray ink, and then added the Nordic frame with foam tape on the back for some dimension.
I added my background layer and frame to a white card base and then lastly added my Christmas tree. I thought about stamping the song title again in a darker ink to add to the card, but then thought that I really liked how it looked with it just being there subtly in the background. So there you have my CAS Christmas card featuring the SONG O'Tannenbaum.
