This week's One Layer Wednesday challenge is being hosted by Cheryl. The challenge is to make a holiday thank you.
This is actually the second card I made. I had an idea that looked something like this photo. My plan was to use a solid green triangle rather than the 'a', and so I went hunting through my Christmas tree stamps. I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for, but I did find a really fun Hero Arts stamp. I wondered if it was completely out of proportion, but tried it anyway - here's the result:
I'm linking this one up to this week's CAS(E) This Sketch challenge:
I love the pops of colour and the way the letters look like they're behind the tree, due to the masking, but I'm still not sure. So I went back to my original idea, but used the 'a', which, conveniently, looks something like a Christmas tree. I like them both, but definitely, each has its own feel.
It amazes me how one little decision can make such a big difference. And if you notice, I still haven't done the solid green triangle (my original idea) - I could probably make all my Christmas thank you cards using this basic idea, and still have no two the same! I love this hobby!
