Peace and Gold Trees

Hello!

Today, I decided to create a Holiday card without a lot of the bold, bright colors associated with Christmas.

I love the Hero Arts stamp I used in this card. The stamp is a delicate fine-lined drawing of bare winter trees. The simple graphic style of the stamp’s image really does convey a sense of quiet and peace in the dead of winter.

I first stamped the image in gold ink onto white 80 lb. cardstock and trimmed it down a little and mounted it on gold metallic cardstock. I then centered the whole think onto wood-grained paper and mounted everything onto a top-folding A2 card base and added the die-cut brushstroke ‘Peace’ sentiment. Love this brushstroke die.

I’m pleased with the simple, minimalist layout of the card made with a minimum number of supplies The gold Delicata ink is gorgeous. The photo doesn’t do justice to this beautiful gold, shimmery ink.

Hope you like this card!
