Good Sunday Morning All
Today is supposed to be another beautiful day, so after church I am going out with camera to see what goodies I can find. In the meantime, I want to share a card with you that I first found on Pinterest. I went to Su Mohr’s blog, https://aromasandart.com/lovely-as-a-tree/, and since it uses a couple of my favorites, I thought I would CASE for my nephew’s birthday.
I am definitely going to play around with this idea some more, so who knows what may be in the future!
For starters, I made the card base from Early Espresso, then, with sheets from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack, I proceeded to make the card front.
I cut the top piece to 4-1/4″ x 5-1/4″, then centered the leaf from Leaflets Framelits and ran it through the Big Shot. On a sheet of the plainer wood grain sheets from Wood Textures, I stamped the image from Lovely as a Tree in Soft Suede. These two pieces were adhered together with Foam Adhesive Strips, then to the card base with Liquid Glue. I placed the Foam Strips very close to the edges of the back of the tree rings, and around the leaf. Since I didn’t like the look of the white edges of the foam, I used my Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker to color them.
This completes the card front. Easy Peasy.
For the inside, I used the tree rings paper for a mat, then stamped my sentiment and the Lovely as a Tree image on a plainer wood grain panel. The sentiment is from Perennial Birthday and stamped in full strength Soft Suede. The trees were stamped off once before stamping on the liner panel. I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to line up the sentiments. All were adhered with Liquid Glue.
On the envelope, never to be naked, I again stamped the Lovely as a Tree image on the front in Soft Sued, and used more of the tree rings DSP on the flap.
This card is quick and simple, yet, I think it is lovely. Try one for yourself.
