It's not too early to start working on some Christmas cards, right?  Last year I made my cards early and it was so much easier than trying to make 50 of them at once.  I love this tree image, but it sure is a lot of coloring, so needless to say I won't be making too many of these this year.

I stamped my image and colored it using my SU markers and the rest of my card was pretty simple.  I added some paper piercing all around my image and just along the bottom of my card.

The decorative paper I used is double sided paper and I just folded over the top 1/4".

Thanks for stopping by and if you haven't already, be sure to check out my post from yesterday (I'll keep it at the top of my blog for this week).  I'm giving away a set of cards that I made, all you need to do is to leave a comment in the post for a chance to win!

I have this stamp and know what you mean about how long it takes to colour! You did a great job with all the detail and the card is beautiful. Sometimes I use this image to make a vintagy style card and stamp it in dark brown ink (craft is best for texture) and then don't colour, just do some sponging around it, you might want to try that out too :-)
