Season's Greetings

I love the simplicity of this card and whilst I had the dies and stamps on my desk I've made a few for my Christmas card box.  They're also a great way of using some more small snippets of paper and card.

To make the card I attached dark blue and pale blue snowflake paper to white card and die cut a medium and small triangle tree.  I placed the triangles onto the card front and using my MISTI I added the sentiment to the lower edge.  I removed the triangles and stamped the sentiment a couple of times to get a deep shade of blue to match the largest tree.  The dark blue tree was attached directly onto the card and the smaller one was attached with Pinflair glue to give some dimension.

To make this card I used:
     6" x 6" white matt card blank
     Sizzix 'Leafy Trees' dies
     Clearly Besotted 'Cheerful Christmas' stamps
     Versafine Majestic blue ink
     Snippets of dark blue and pale blue paper, white card

I am entering the following challenges:
     AAA Cards - Maximum White Space & Optional Twist Geometric
     Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes With Dies - October Challenge
     Pixie's Snippets Playground - Challenge 364

Very effective with the two different blue coloured patterned triangular trees and a simple sentiment stamped in a coordinating blue. A pretty CAS card Kath. x

What a delightful card Kath. Love that it's so CAS yet immediately says Christmas even if you haven't read the sentiment yet.
