.... Hello again!! I'm back with a very clean and simple, and one layer, card for a couple of challenges:
Stamps: Penny Black - Fantasy Tree; My Favourite Things - Clearly Sentimental about New Beginnings
Inks: Versafine - Vintage Sepia; Versamark; Stampin' Up! - Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Cherry Cobbler; Doodlebug Sprinkles; Vellum; Clear Embossing Powder
I've adapted the sketch for a square card. I stamped the tree directly onto the card base and embossed it with clear powder. I didn't want to hide the tree so I stamped the sentiment onto vellum and embossed that too. I ran the vellum through my Xyron to make it self-adhesive and applied to the card. I finished off the front with some enamel dots in co-ordinating colours. I've left the inside very plain - simply a mat of red and on the white panel a tree - allowing space for me to write a message. Chrissie and Jen want to see more than just leaves, so I thought this was a good opportunity to get out this stamp - I've neglected it a bit of late!
It's a gorgeous day here - with lots of sunshine and blue skies, mind there are a few dark clouds that keep coming over, but no snow or rain yet!! Strange to think that in Chicago they had the first snowfall of the season yesterday, albeit only a dusting! Bye for now!
