Well, I was trolling around Pinterest one day and I saw an awesome card made by Stampin' Up Artisan Design Team member Paula Dobson, from New Zealand. I pinned that baby right away and decided I'd recreate that card for one of my Christmas card-making classes. Paula's card is way more wonderful than mine--notice her embossing on half the sentiment--so I made a less elaborate version that would be easier to create in a class setting.
I started with a 3-3/4" by 5" Whisper White panel. I stamped the sentiment in the center with Crumb Cake Ink. Then, I lined up the three tree stamps on one block and inked them with Basic Black Archival Ink. I stamped the three trees at the top and bottom of the sentiment. Next, I squeezed some ink into the lid of a Garden Green Ink pad and colored the trees using a Blender Pen.
I adhered this piece to a 3-7/8" by 5-1/8" Basic Black Card Stock mat and then on to a Crumb Cake Card Stock card base.
I don't usually do the inside of a card ("innies" as my friend, Dena Rekow says), but Paula's card was adorable inside, too. I used the same three-trees-on-one-block and stamped them in Basic Black Archival Ink onto a 3-3/4" by 5" Whisper White panel. I colored them with Garden Green Ink and a Blender Pen. I stamped another sentiment from the "Watercolor Christmas" set in Crumb Cake right below them. I adhered this to a 3-7/8" by 5-1/8" Basic Black Card Stock mat and then to the inside of the card. Love this!!
