Today's card is a simple, yet beautiful Christmas card using a retired set featuring pine trees. You could easily replicate this by using a tree from the "Lovely As A Tree" set by Stampin' Up!
The technique involves the stamping off method, and I used both Night of Navy and Marina Mist inks. I also used a mask to delineate the ground line when stamping the most distant trees as I only wanted the upper halves of them. Once the darker trees in the foreground were stamped I used an Aqua Painter to soften the ground lines.
When all the stamping and layering was complete I ran the card though the Big Shot using the Softly Falling Textured Embossing folder. I find using texture on the surface really adds dimension to the card .
To finish off I used some of the gorgeous silver ribbon, available as a free gift via Sale-A-Bration at Stampin' Up! This ribbon comes in a pack of 2 spools - 1 gold and 1 silver. It is beautiful soft ribbon that is easy to tie and you can choose it or any other SAB item with each $90 of orders you make before March 31, 2017
I did not feel any need to add a greeting to this card as the image is lovely in it's own right.
Thank you for looking - I hope you enjoy the card.
