Colourific: Modern Christmas Tree Cards

Hey there, it’s good to see you. I hope you’ve had a great week and an even better start to your weekend. Make sure you check out the fabulous Christmas stamps from Colourific as it isn’t too late to still make some more cards. These clean and simple Christmas cards were the first set of cards I made with the Christmas stamp collection from Colourific and I think they are my favourite. I just love this tree! This modern Christmas tree design lends itself to Clean and Simple (CAS) cards and I used it to create 3 fabulous cards. 

modern Christmas tree Card Process overview

To create these cards, stamp the modern tree from the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set in versamark ink and heat emboss in a colour of your choosing. Next, decide and find a colour corresponding embellishment to act as the baubles for the tree.

For the kraft card, I use a selection of different sized red and gold mat sequins and adhered these down with liquid glue. The tree was then die cut with a stitched rectangle die and adhered onto a white card base. 

For the grey card, I use a selection of differently sized mat and shiny sequins. I fussy cut around the tree and adhered this down onto a grey card panel that had been spray with some shimmer spray. To finish the grey card off, I foam mounted a stitched rectangle frame out of matching kraft card. 

For this blue, I used white Nuvo drops to act as the baubles for the tree. Again, this tree was fussy cut-out and foam mounted on to a navy card panel. A sentiment from the Christmas Time Text stamp set was added to a strip of white card on the front on the card panel, and the whole panel was mounted onto a white card base.
