Sweet Winter Wishes

Hi everyone.  Sharing another Christmas card today.  This was quick and easy to make as I had a piece of alcohol ink paper in my stash.  I just die-cut this sweet tree die (on loan from my dear friend, Susan) and stamped the sentiment in Delicata silver.  QCAS (quick and clean and simple) as Darnell would say! :)

Adding this card to the CAS Mix Up December gallery.  Come join us!


Here's a close-up.
I love this die so much that I went and bought one for myself.  :)

Edited to add:  Sorry, I missed adding the info about the die.  It's called Evergreen Window and is made by Memory Box.







Stamps:  Snowglobe Sentiments (My Favorite Things)
Paper:  Yupo for Alcohol ink background; White card base (Neenah 110 lb.)
Ink:  Alcohol inks (Ranger / Pinata); Delicata Silver (Tsukineko)
Accessories & Tools:  Blender solution in a spray bottle, Evergreen Window die (Memory Box)

So gorgeous! Love this die. Miz B enabled me to find it, (had to hunt too!) and I think this is just a marvelous focal point for the lovely background. Enjoying all the earlier watercolor florals too. TFS & Hugs
