Festival of Trees Merry Christmas - Fab Friday 70

It took me a while to figure out what to do with the sketch with Fab Friday.  I knew I wanted to made a Christmas card, but I don't have too many of the new ones yet.  Then I thought of the Festival of Trees stamp, and the rest is this card.

 

  • The base card is Old Olive, layered with Whisper white cardstock followed by Into the Woods DSP.
  • On to a smaller piece of Whisper White cardstock, the image of one of the trees from the Festival of Trees stamp set was stamped repeatedly to mimic a forest.  The trees in the back were stamped off before stamping to make them appear farther away .  As the trees became closer to the front, the darker the trees became.
  • Some dazzling diamonds was applied to the trees.
  • Two 1/4" strips of cardstock, one Always Artichoke, and one Old Olive, were applied to the card front 3/4 of the way down.
  • Instead of a button for an embellishment I stamped the image of the pine branch and cone from the stamp set "Lovely as a Tree" and punched it out with a 3/4" circle punch.  This was layered with a 1" circle of Always Artichoke.
  • The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny wishes.
  • The edges of all papers were sponged with Always Artichoke ink.
