Scenic Trees

The final day of Holiday Card Workshop 2013 was once again amazing! Kristina Werner created a beautiful card with a scene of a black stamped trees against a blue and black inked background.  This 'scene' card theme went perfectly with the card I made with Scrapendipity's Make 'n Take card last week!

We used a die from Cheery Lynn to create this fun folded card, which has a matching die to cut the papers that decorate the card outside and inside. We first tore a piece of cardstock into a sloping hill and then sponged Distress Inks along the edge, moving the torn paper up to the top.  We then stamped the trees and heat embossed with white embossing powder that had glitter in it - so pretty! Then came the background snowflakes stamped with silver ink, the sentiment heat embossed with black and the die cut snowflakes and ribbon.

When I got home I measured the cuts and created my own popped up card, using CTMH paper and creating a similar background for the front of the card.  I stamped this one with black trees using a CTMH stamp set, heat embossed the sentiment and stamped on snowflakes with Inkadinkadoo stamps. I used some sparkly Gelly Roll pens and Stickles to decorate my trees.
