Modern Christmas Trees

Hello and Happy Tuesday!  Today I'm sharing a Christmas in August card featuring a set of Modern Christmas Trees.  The digital image is from Varada Sharma Designs and is part of a larger set which can be found HERE.

The simplicity of the images appealed to me and I thought this image would be great foiled.  In order to foil digital images, they need to be printed using a laser printer.  I have an inexpensive HP Laser printer I use for crafting and I like it because it handles heavy card like a champ.  I printed the image and hot foiled using a laminator and toner reactive foil.

While photographing, I tried to pick up the shine of the foiling, it really adds lots of pizazz to these simple, modern trees.  I added color using alcohol markers, the plaid paper is from the Memory Box Christmas Plaids 6x6 paper pad and the mini sentiment is from Cardz TV.


Have you started creating your holiday cards yet?  Do you post cards every season?  I do and usually send an average of 30 handcrafted cards each year to family, friends and neighbors.  

Thanks for stopping by today and until next time, Happy Crafting!
