O Christmas Tree

I love taking a stamp that strikes me as cute or quirky and turning into something that seems (to me) elegant. I originally wanted a light-hearted card with this tree, but I had been wanting to use my foil flakes for awhile, and suddenly I thought of using it for this stamp, with which I was planning to make a wordless card for a thank you, and I really liked the result. After making the first card, I just had to keep going! I think it may be my favorite for this year's Christmas. The images are all from smARTworks. I absolutely love doing business with this company!

Ooh, that really is lovely! A great example of simple and elegant. I have a couple bags of those flakes in my stash, but have only used them once or twice... they may actually see the light of day again soon :)

Oh, I love the flakes! I used to use them constantly, and then just kind of forgot about them. They are so easy to work with, and great for making a fairly quick card that looks like you went to a lot of effort!
