I have a simple Christmas card to share with you today. It uses my two favourite crafty items – Distress Oxide inks and die cuts.

I blended in some Lucky Clover and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink onto some Bristol smooth white card stock. I flicked on some water droplets to create the snow effect, which I dabbed off with a paper towel.

I then die cut the Penny Black Swirl Tree from white card stock and adhered it onto the inked panel. Before adhering to the card base, I created some score lines with a stylus and score board to create a decorative border.

The sentiment is from the Penny Black Banner Sentiments stamp set. It’s a bit hard to tell, but the tree die cut has some shimmer thanks to a clear Wink of Stella glitter brush pen.
