Since I first saw the pine bough image from Flourishes “All That Glitters” stamp set, the idea for this card has been in my head.  And I have to admit I love the serene and peaceful feel of this scene.


I stamped the bough image several times, starting at the bottom and moving up, to form the large half tree in the foreground.  The tree in the background is from Flourishes “Forest of Trees” stamp set.  Using the emboss resist technique, both trees are stamped with a blend of Creamy Caramel and VersaMark and then embossed with clear embossing powder.  SU!’s Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip inks are then sponged onto the card stock.  The left panel is Flourishes “Glittering Christmas” designer paper. The sentiment is from Flourishes “Holiday Greetings” stamp set and stamped in Chocolate Chip.  There is a chocolate Kaiser flatback pearl placed on the sentiment.  The ribbon is May Arts.
