Simplicity!!

I have decided to take the simple approach to some of my Christmas cards that way i can send more out........lol.

Here's one i made last night and i have a few ideas along the same theme ready to put to practice later. I do like the simplicity of the card myself but the picture really doesn't do anything for it!!

You can't see by the picture but the background is clear glitter sticky paper. The tree is a shiny white paper with clear stickles over parts and mounted on gold mirri board. When the light hits it at different angles (thats not hard with the Christmas tree lights flashing frantically!!) it's really sparkly and looks very Chrismassy!!

Thanks for stopping by. x

Ooo I like this. Great idea, I must admit I'm doing the same thing, keeping it simple so I can send more handmade cards.
