More Trees

October 10, 2017

This is the last of three cards I made using the Watercolour Christmas stamp set and my trusty sketches.  You might ask “Why Three?”  Well we make three cards each week at Beachmere and if I do three from the same stamp set, I can spread them across three weeks and be a little organised ahead of time.   This time I embossed Whisper White card using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Real Red card.  I wrapped a piece of the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper with a length of Real Red 1/8″ Solid Ribbon and attached it to the left hand side of the embossed card.  I took another length of the Real Red 1/8″ Solid ribbon and tied a bow over the ribbon attached to the Designer Series paper.   I stamped the three tree images from the Watercolour Christmas stamp set onto Whisper White card using Black Archival ink.  Two of the trees are coloured using an Aqua Painter and Lemon Lime Twist ink.  The images are cut out using the smallest square in the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and attached to a Real Red scalloped square cut using the Layering Squares Framelits Dies.  The image panels are attached to the right hand side of the card front.

To decorate the inside of the card, I embossed a strip of Whisper White card using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.  I attached a narrow strip of Real Red card behind one long edge of the embossed card and attached it to the bottom of Whisper White card.  I stamped the tree image from the Watercolour Christmas stamp set just above the embossed panel using Black Archival ink.  I used an Aqua Painter and Lemon Lime Twist ink to colour the tree.

I’m so happy with this card, in fact all three cards I created in this series.  I truly love the Watercolour Christmas stamp set.  The large greetings and the small tree images are just so versatile.  I bought this stamp set to create the cards in the Watercolour Christmas Project Kit but I am using it for so much more.  Maybe you have this set on our wishlist or maybe you have been inspired to take advantage of the Designer Series Paper Promotion this month and get some free.

Bye for now,

    Gorgeous Kris. Not sure which is my favourite – you make it too hard to choose.
