The challenge at the Paper Craft Crew Challenge this week is a Tic Tac Toe Challenge, and after pondering the choices, I chose the column from the upper left to the lower right - found in the forest, rustic , sponging.
I chose the stamp set "Rustic Retreat"
The card itself is a rustic picture frame, showing elements of items found in the forest namely branches and logs. The frame was made using two different sizes of stitched rectangle dies and Wood Texture DSP matted with Early Espresso card stock. This was mounted on a piece of Crumb Cake card stock using foam adhesive strips. This crumb cake card stock was embossed with the Woodlands embossing folder and sponged lightly to enhance the impressions.
In the center of the frame a picture of a rustic cabin in the woods with smoke coming from the chimney into a sponged blue sky, trees around it and snow on the ground. A 3 dimensional branch, die cut from a Seasonal Layer die, adorns the frame top.
A sentiment, stamped on a background that looks like a board, is attached to the bottom of the frame.
This frame is adhered to an Early Espresso card base.
