February 2022 Get Cracking on Christmas

Hello everyone!

It still feels rather early to be making Christmas cards, but I really want to play along with Jenn Shurkus’s ‘Get Cracking on Christmas’ every month this year. So, using the colour palette from this week’s CAS Colours and Sketches challenge, I pulled out some festive supplies and got to work.

As the palette is a traditional festive combo, I decided to use the beautiful Memory Box Flowering Tree – I last used it during Christmas in July 2021 when I was working with a non-festive combo!  I used alcohol markers on the tree and adhered it to an ink blended panel. I trimmed down a vase from the new-to-me Waffle Flower Crafts vases die set and added a sentiment by Mama Elephant.

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. I love everything about this Lucie. That’s a really beautiful card, that tree die is amazing and it shows our challenge colors so well! Thank you for joining us this week at CC&S!


  2. Never thought to use this tree in a pot! It looks fantastic with the inked background too, Cathy x


  3. Lucie your festive tree die is stunning and so perfect for this week’s colours. Thanks for sharing with us over at CAS Colours and Sketches this week!
