A Festival of Trees Christmas Card

I'm still on the hunt for something that will resemble our family Christmas card.  This one is not it!  I did not like making the trees.  My ink beads up on those clear stamps, plus this card is kind of blah looking.

I used the "Festival of Trees" set for the tree.  "Petite Pairs" for the "Merry Christmas (which I REALLY like how the words look) and the "Northern Flurry" folder (which I also like).  So it's the tree that is bugging me with this card.  Maybe I should find some larger holiday greetings and put them where the upper middle of the tree is!!!  Hmmm, now there's a thought.

I did get to add the brown to the stem of the tree.  I whined about that in my post yesterday.  I had wished I had colored in the the tree trunk.  I did it and I like it but somehow these 3 elements just don't mesh well together.  So off on another quest.

This was a very simple card to make, it just isn't the card for me!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Wanda, to avoid the "beading" on your stamps, make sure you clean it (condition it) on your stamp n scrubber. There is usually a film on it when it comes from the company, so by cleaning it with the scrubber, you're getting that film off. That should help. I like the concept of the card, it just needs a bigger element than the tree. Maybe a bigger tree??? but then you'd have to cut them by hand - ick, ick! lol
