Hi there, well today my blog is true to my roots. I’m a kiwi girl at heart and love living in New Zealand and driving to work these last couple of weeks has been a real treat withe the Pohutakawa Tree in full bloom. If you don’t live in New Zealand you really are missing something this year, our native Christmas Tree is really showing off. So I decided at least one of my Christmas cards needed to be a kiwi Christmas card so this is my rendition of the Pohutakawa tree and I have a friend who loves New Zealand summer Christmases so this is perfect for her. I couldn’t decided about the bling but I have another friend who believes a card is not a card without bling – so you decide.
Personally I like the bling! Its an easy card to make and is just stamping but instead of limiting to one or two stamp sets I used what I needed to get the effect I was after.
Supplies included: Stamp sets: Work of Art, Lovely as a Tree, Touches of Texture and Christmas Pines Cardstock: Baked brown sugar (retired but I love the golden colour), mint macaron, whisper white Ink: Baked brown sugar (retired), pool party, espresso, garden green, mint macaron, cherry cobbler Other: adhesive, trimmer, wink of stella clear, fancy frost sequins
Use another sentiment and this could easily be birthday or an any reason card!
