On the first card I used the Matting Basics to cut a rectangular image which I matted onto black card. I stamped the Dictionary background on the card base and then adhered the Christmas tree. It has the look of a painted canvas.
On the larger card I decided to have a bit of fun with placement of the image. For this card I die cut the tree using the Wonky Rectangles and, after stamping the dictionary background, adhered the image directly to the card. I put the die over the top of the image and lightly drew round the die. Then, using a Micron pen I created a "Zentangle" type frame. I finished the front of this card with a greeting that I found in my scrap stash - just happened to be the right colour!
For the inside of each card I cut a mat layer in black and on the white panel stamped the Christmas tree and added a sentiment.
