Geometric Trees Circle with Kristina Werner – CZ Design Clean Line Christmas

Hello all! Kristina Werner here! Today I have a fun card for you made with the Clean Line Christmas stamp set from CZ Design. I thought it would be fun to stamp the trees in the stamp set in a circular pattern! Be sure to watch the video below for tips on getting the trees spaced just right. :)

I stamped the trees in Copic-friendly Intense Black ink from Simon. Then I colored the trees and the background using Copic markers.

The greeting was stamped and white heat embossed over the the pattern. However, the greeting was getting “lost” with the busy tree pattern behind it. To remedy the situation, I used a small blender brush and Black Soot Distress ink to darken up the area around the white greeting. Because the heat embossed greeting has a slick surface, I was able to buff off any ink on top of the greeting, leaving behind a bright white sentiment.

To finish off the card, I drew a white dashed line around the entire area.

Thanks for stopping by today! You can pick up the Clean Line Christmas stamp set HERE.

  1. Stunning card, plus loved Black Soot behind the sentiment – a wonderful alternative to our ever-present sentiment strips! You make me want to experiment to see how it works using a color of Distress Oxide against colored cardstock that’s been stamped or even has a die cut adhered to it – like a blue ink on blue cardstock.

  2. Wow! What a cool and unique card! I love the way you blended a little bit of black ink behind the sentiment so that it would be more visible- great idea!

  3. I love this. Those trees look dimensional. I don’t know how you keep coming up with these genius techniques, but I appreciate you sharing them with us.

  4. such an unusual design – love the Copic coloring and showing how the black could create such a dramatic effect – thanks for the inspiration :)

  5. Boy, Kristina, you worked magic when you put the black ink behind those words! I thought they were lost forever, but instead they just popped! Your coloring is beautiful, so much depth to it! An absolutely gorgeous card! TFS!

  6. A very beautiful and unique card!
    I have Copics on top of my wish list this year, I would so love to try them, they make everyone’s projects so gorgeous!

  7. This is absolutely gorgeous. I love the black background. I also love the black ink blended over the sentiment. I might have to try that technique too. This is INCREDIBLE! I love it! Thanks Kristina!!!
