Oh Christmas Tree Cards

Happy December!

Really, it's almost Christmas?!  I have missed sharing my creations with you but just wasn't able to. More on that in another post. Today I want to share some Christmas cards with you. I have been having a festive time with the new Tim Holtz Sizzix dies Evergreen and Woodlands. Oh Christmas Tree!  Such versatile dies!

Wanting to keep things simple and quick, I used the Yuletide paper pad for the snow and the background. Metallic Kraft Core cardstock was used for the words and accents.  I used texture paste to create the snow on the trees as well as flicks of white picket fence paint to give the feel of snow fall. 

One last card is a steampunk, masculine Christmas for a friend in the construction industry. I used the same Yuletide paper pad and the metallic Kraft core. This time I embossed the copper metallic with the blueprint texture fade and sanded and inked it for a grungy feel. 

Do you want to see a sneak peek of my next class at Chico Scrapbooks?  It has a love/Valentine theme and will be on Sunday, January 17th after we get back from CHA.

These tiles are inspired by Paula Cheney. Check out her tutorial on her blog One Lucky Day

Thank You so much for visiting my blog. I appreciate all those who stop by and all the wonderful comments. I appreciate each and everyone of you!  Wishing you a wonderful holiday season filled with blessings, joy, and love!

While I have been missing here on the blog I have been posting to my Facebook page SY's Studio. Please come on by if you are on Facebook. 

Happy Creating!

Hugs, Sharon


  1. Sharon, I love your cards, especially how you used both the positive and negative :)

  2. I love the balance in your cards. I would never have thought to use those papers for snow, but they really work. Thanks for the inspiration.
