MSE has a challenge for Christmas card this fortnight. On the face of it, it sounds pretty wierd but really it is time to start getting organised for Chrimbo! It is nearer Christmas 2009 than Christmas 2008! Also if QVC can sell Chrimbo card making bits in July we can definitely make Christmas cards!!!
I got the idea for this card form a card making book though cannot recall the title. It is very simple, just like me and just like my cards! I have drawn a 'stick' tree onto white card then added acetate (actually from a sheet of OHP paper, well it's all power point now isn't it??!!). Onto the acetate I have added the embellishments to decorate the tree. It was a bit more fiddly than I expected and I have since found a bigger star shape which will look better on top of the tree, so I will give this design another chance at some point.
I hope that shows you the general idea anyway!! Hard to take pics with the shiny plastic so have taken them indoors and out!
