Holiday Card Series 2019 – Day 7 – Geometric Trees Design

NOTE: This post is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp. Thanks, Simon!

Happy Friday, all! Welcome back for Day 7 of the Holiday Card Series! I have a fun card for you made with the Clean Line Christmas stamp set from CZ Design. I thought it would be fun to stamp the trees in the stamp set in a circular pattern! Be sure to watch the video below for tips on getting the trees spaced just right. :)

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

I stamped the trees in Copic-friendly Intense Black ink from Simon. Then I colored the trees and the background using Copic markers.

The greeting was stamped and white heat embossed over the the pattern. However, the greeting was getting “lost” with the busy tree pattern behind it. To remedy the situation, I used a small blender brush and Black Soot Distress ink to darken up the area around the white greeting. Because the heat embossed greeting has a slick surface, I was able to buff off any ink on top of the greeting, leaving behind a bright white sentiment.

To finish off the card, I drew a white dashed line around the entire area.

Thanks for stopping by today! I’ll be back on Monday for Day 8! :)
