After a year or two of viewing Keesh's blog and her Inkspirations Challenges, I can finally join in now my blog is set up.
It was great to participate in this challenge as I find sketches are great to take you out of your comfort zone and that is certainly how I felt with this challenge! As I was creating this card, I realised that it also almost fit the colours that Dawn McVey set on her blog this weekend so my first challenge entry ever is a double!
I started by using Vintage Cream cardstock for my base and matting the next layer of Vintage Cream on Kraft cardstock. After stamping a flourish on this 2nd layer of cream card using Chamomile Ink, I ran it through my Cuttlebug using Papertrey Ink's Argyle Impression Plate. I matted some Green Tea Leaves paper with Riding Hood Red cardstock. A layer of glitter was added using Scor-Tape.
My trees were stamped with Versamark Ink and embossed on Kraft cardstock using the tree image from Autumn Leaves - A Rhonna Christmas. These were then cut out and mounted on to a Vintage Cream circle cut with Nestabilities. To create the look of snow, glitter was added below the trees with two-way glue. The sentiment was stamped in Riding Hood Red ink with the Wings of Joy set from Taylored Expressions. A matching envelope was stamped with chocolate ink using the tree and flourish image.
