Framed Trees


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.


Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Best Yet,  All Year Cheer
Inks: Versamark, Not quite Navy, Bashful Blue, Always Artichoke, Mellow Moss
Cardstock: Not quite Navy, Always Artichoke, Whisper White
Also:  White e.p.
