This is my second post of the day. I happened upon the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and since the theme for the week is Christmas, I thought I would give it a try. I love making Christmas cards and try making a few all along so I do not get bogged down when it really gets time to make them.
I am using the Woodland Embossing folder and Lovely As A Tree to create this. I really like using both of these and use them quite often, especially Lovely As A Tree.
The card base is Pool Party cut at 8-1/2 x 5-1/2, scored at 4-1/4. Crumb Cake cardstock was used to cut a mat 4-1/4 x 5-1/2. This was popped on the card base.
A piece of Whisper White cardstock was cut at 4 x 5-1/4 and then embossed and stamped. To give the appearance of the green trees being behind the others, I stamped a tree from the Lovely As A Tree Stamp Set using the Garden Green stamp pad from Stampin Up onto the Woodland Embossing Folder. I also colored the spaces between the trees to make it look like sky using a sponge dabber and Pool Party Stampin Up ink pad. I then put it through the Big Shot. Soon I will be saying put through the Gemini! As Governor Zell Miller used to say, I bite the bullet and bought one because of my hands.
To give the appearance of bark on the trees, I used a Crumb Cake Stampin Write Marker.
I adhered the art piece to the Crumb Cake mat with liquid glue. The greeting is from a Stampin Up Retired Christmas stamp set. I stamped it using the Always Artichoke stamp pad from Stampin Up. I matted it on a small piece of Always Artichoke cardstock and popped it on the card front.
I didn’t stamp an inside sentiment as it is a while until Christmas and I can decide then the sentiment I want for the card.
Hope you enjoy the card! Come back soon.
