Clean and Simple (CAS) Calm Christmas card



This is a nice simple card which would be easy to mass-produce for Christmas. You could colour the bird with markers but that’s not ideal for such a large area, so I inked the dove with a Coastal Cabana ink pad, then cleaned off the ink form the leaf with a cotton bud, before reinking it with an Old Olive marker. If you were in a hurry, you could simplify matters by simply stamping it all in one colour, of course.

It’s my Epic Day of Crafting tomorrow and I’m very excited. Am going to pack my bags today and keep my fingers tightly crossed that I don’t forget something (there’s a first time for everything). I have some great projects planned and some fantastic goodies for the ladies who are attending so I hope they enjoy it!

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love receiving genuine comments - I do get bored of deleting dodgy links though!
