Christmas Cards All Year Round September

This month at Christmas Cards all Year Round the theme is 

"Country Christmas"

I must say this challenge is not one of my strong suits but I did make two cards for the occasion. The first one uses a set of three trees on one stamp by Stampin Up. I stamped them with Hero Arts black onto Ranger's distress watercolor paper. Then I colored the trees in with distress inks and a water pen. 

Once it was dry I trimmed the piece down 1/4 of an inch and matted it to green cardstock. Then to finish it off I applied a SRM Sticker to the front left.



My second card uses a stamp by PSX (circa 1995) that I stamped onto the same watercolor paper with black Versa Color ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder by Stamp N Plus. Then I colored it in the same way as above. The patterned paper is by Bazzill, felt ribbon by Oriental Trading Co, and brad by Around the Block.


Thanks for looking.
