Clean Christmas - Card Class Day 3

For the third lesson at Clean and Simple Card Making 2 we were asked to create a card with a new technique or an old favourite.  I elected to use an old favourite by doing some second generation stamping. I've only ever done this on more elaborate cards.  This looks similar to Kristina Werner's offset stamping technique, but the difference is that you stamp the same image twice without inking in between.  The second impression will be much lighter, and will give the overall image much more dimension   I love this technique with these trees!

By the way, it may seem early to do a Christmas card but hopefully doing a few each month will help me get my cards done before the holiday arrives.  :)
