Framed TreesPosted: October 31, 2009
This is another of the cards I designed for the Christmas Card Workshop at my church last weekend. This one was my favourite because I was really pleased with the way the sponged background worked out. I positioned post-it notes around the edges of the white piece of cardstock and sponged in Bashful Blue before stamping the trees in Not Quite Navy. I purposely made the “window’ a little smaller than the size of the tree stamp so the image would go the edges. I’m not sure why, but it was what I wanted! I then embossed the sentiment in white e.p.
I liked the framed area idea so much I tried it with the lone pine from Lovely as a Tree as well. This time I sponged in Mellow Moss and stamped in Always Artichoke.
It needed a white insert so I used the complete sentiment from All Year Cheer with a bit of tree on the side.
By the way if you are ever searching for cards using a particular stamp set, my categories are pretty much all stamp sets with a few exceptions and are listed in the drop down menu on the right hand side labeled Categories. Thanks for dropping in, there are a couple more from the workshop which I hope to post soon.
