Distressed Christmas Tree (and a few variations)
I had shared a few distressed card samples I made a little bit ago and thought I’d play around with the same layout and techniques using some holiday images.
The tree is part of the Penny Black “Wonder Collection” stamp set that was a free gift with the Papercraft Essentials Magazine (issue 113) from September 2014. (The tree is called “A Splash of Winter” which is available by itself.
Here are a few more variations:
The nativity stamp used on the left is by PSX D-209 (no title). (The greeting on this one is from the Penny Black set above.) The “Swirly Christmas Tree” in the center is by Rubber Soul. The snowflake on the right is from Stampin’ Up; I purchased it by itself on ebay and am not sure what set it originally came from.
“French Script” from Stampin’ Up (retired) was used behind the “smooshed” background. The splatters are from the SU “Timeless Textures” set. I used Memento Rich Cocoa and Desert Sand or Summer Sky and Blue Danube for these samples.
Thanks for checking out my card projects!

Fabulous card and I like the variations you did too.
Beautiful! The splattered Christmas tree would also look lovely with metallic ink! (I love sparkly things… lol)
I’ll have to try that although I do not generally prefer to use pigment inks as they are just soooo messy and harder to clean up! I did do a card (“The Magic of Christmas”) recently where I embossed this tree in gold. The photo at the bottom of the post shows the shine a little better.

YES! I remember that card! I love the embossed gold (especially with the splattered texture)
