Southern Christmas Tree


This is a more meaningful Christmas tree to us here in NZ with some of our native flora and fauna forming the foliage.  I think the EF is complex enough and decided to keep it fairly simple.  Great for a last minute card.

I embossed the card and used pigment inks to highlight the shapes that make the tree, and sanded the dotty bits.  The sentiment is built in to the tree.  Matted onto gold frame.
