Christmas Trees

The challenge over at Less is More this week is "More Than One Tree"; I didn't count how many are on here but there's definitely more than one! The starting point for this card was the sketch over at Addicted to CAS and a very old set of stamps by Woodware, coloured with Promarkers. The finished result looked a bit flat & boring so I added a touch of Wink of Stella to the red and the stars, which you can just about see in the photo below. The card was still flat & boring so I finished off with a gold edge to the image & greeting, which were both popped up on foam squares.


  1. You're right the gold really makes your design pop!

  2. Such a fun and funky card fitting both challenges


  3. Super striking and fun trees.
    Great layout and design and so pleased you've joined our challenge this week.

  8. A very striking card - love how you have interpreted the sketch with your tree images. I can never (rarely) combine challenges - just not organised enough I guess, but your card does this so well.

  9. This is so sweet and pretty, Helen. Your contemporary trees are lovely.

  10. Wonderful! You can never have too many trees or tree stamps, Lol!
