Welcome 2019!

I was planning to make a chevron cut Christmas tree for my December card.  Now that we are into January, I adapted my idea a bit.

I abandoned the traditional Christmas colors, and instead chose a “boho” inspired tree.  And, rather than using the Christmas tree to deliver a message of peace during the holidays, I broadened my vision. 

I began to think of all of the things that a tree has come to symbolize:  rooted, grounded, growth, cultivate, nourish, strength, flexibility, adapt, learning, knowledge, wisdom, reach, strive, aim…Seems fitting for the start of a new year.

This card also gave me the opportunity to finally try out my We R Memory Keepers typewriter!  I used the sepia ribbon and typed the words on the back of my card onto manila cardstock to give it a more vintage feel.  Then I used Tea Dye Distress Ink to color and soften the edges. 

Happy 2019!
