A Christmas Tree Study 2 header

I’m officially in love with the trees in the new Stamp Simply Clear Stamps’ O Christmas Tree set.  And the sentiments that go along with it are perfect.

I wanted to come up with another quick and easy Christmas card that could be mass produced.  So I saw a card on Pinterest that was a black based Christmas card and initially I was like… no.  Then I embossed this tree in gold on black and instantly knew I was going to love it.

So simple.  So striking.

Those red rhinestones just put icing on the cake.

What do you think?  Is a black Christmas card a yes?

But that wasn’t it.  I remembered an exercise when used to do as members of the Splitcoaststampers’ Dirty Dozen.  It was called Less/More.  Since the first card was a “Less”, I followed up with a “More”.

Still using the black as a base.  This time with added features.  A sentiment tag (known as a Levi tag), some holly and ivy sprigs and fun tendrils.  The red rhinestones were carried over.

I’m even more in love with the black, now.
