Wednesday’s Card: Christmas Tree Gift Box

Christmas Tree

Christmas Tree

Happy Holidays!

This week I used the same stamp set I used for my 2011 Christmas card. I used Regal Rose ink – something a little different than your traditional red. I hope you like it!

This card is actually version two. I thought it would be fun to post my first version, so scroll down after the video to see version one!

Hope you are all having a fun holiday season so far! Enjoy.

Version One: I just couldn’t leave it so white. I really wanted to, but I couldn’t!!

    Just proof that simple is always elegant. I like both versions. Something that can be mass produce without too much stress. Wahoo!

    love it. I think the second one is much better than the first, although I see someone else liked the white one better. They are both great. Thanks for the tutorials

    I like the plain card too but I do see that it might have been to white for you. It’s good for mass production though. I love the second card.

    I love the white on white with the shaded border separating the two. Lovely! How do you think of all these things? What an amazing, creative mind you have.
    Thank you for sharing.

    Hi Darlene,
    I love your card today. Your videos are the best! I have a question, I hope it’s not dumb. I like the ranger applicator thing you use. Do you have one for every color or is it something that you wash out all the time. What kind of material is it? Is it sponge? I also love the ranger pearl drops. Where would I purchase these items? Thanks,
    Sue Deane

      @Sue: Not a dumb question at all! I have about 8 or so Ranger applicators – I use one for each color group. So, one for reds/pinks, one for yellows, one for blues, etc. I think the minimum you need is 8, but it would be nice to have more. For example, a separate one for reds and pinks just in case I need to use those colors on the same card. I never wash them. I have yet to wear out the sponge thingy, but the applicator comes with some extra if you do. The liquid pearls are great! you can buy the applicator HERE and the liquid pearls HERE.
