A Rustic Christmas Tree – by Jill Hilliard

Good Wednesday morning!

Today Jill is sharing a Christmas card that is rustic in appearance using a wintry tree, woodgrain and kraft papers. What a lovely combination evoking such a natural, woodsy feel. I can see, hear and smell the silence of the winter woods when I look at this card. Take a look:

The rustic simplicity is beautiful here.

This card is nearly flat for mailing and would be a fun card to mass produce this holiday season.

Additionally, this card has a fabulous masculine appeal and by replacing the Christmas sentiment with a more generic sentiment, this would make a great card for a man with a winter birthday or so many other occasions.

This could be any farmyard around here, with a pine tree in the foreground and an old barn with weathered wood in the background.

Actually, this is pretty much what I see when I look out of my kitchen window by the sink – LOL!

Jill created her snow with Nuvo drops – we do stock Snow-Tex.

You can find Jill’s post on her blog here.

Jill used:

Stamps: O Christmas Tree by Stamp Simply Clear Stamps

Wonder of Christmas Sentiments by Stamp Simply Clear Stamps

Dies: O Christmas Tree by Stamp Simply Clear Stamps

Spellbinders Standard Circles

Paper: Christmas in the Country by Prima

Embellishments: Kaisercraft Rhinestones – Large

Enamel Dots

Adhesives:  3D Foam Squares, EZ Runner

These are the 3 sets in our O Christmas Tree series – two stamp sets and one die set – and Jill used each of them on today’s card.

Having items coordinate for projects is a must in my book – and this trio does just that! You will have endless options with 3 different trees and the variety of sentiments offered.

Each item is available individually and in several purchase options.
