A Quick Card for the Season...

Hi! I am here today with a card that I made for a customer. This was a rush order and I had very little time. I think sometimes tight deadlines help you make better stuff because you don't have the time to agonize over every detail.

I started with a panel of white card stock that I die cut with a stitched rectangle die. I masked off the bottom portion of the card and blended some light blue distress ink. I splattered some white paint and allowed it to dry completely. The sentiment is from the A Tree For All Seasons set by Winnie & Walter. I cut the felt trees by hand and backed up each with scraps of thick card stock. I also cut strips out of some brown card stock and used them as the tree trunks. I arranged the trees on the card and then adhered them, popping up some with foam tape. To finish, I added some star sequins from my stash and adhered the completed panel to a light teal card base.

I hope you like this quick, CAS card. Looking forward to hearing from you.
