Tree Silhouettes - CardPatterns Sketch 64

This sketch was posted at the CardPatterns Sketch blog and I decided to "play along".



I didn't have a distinct idea for this card and it wound up being not only a very clean and simple design, but monochromatic, as well. Funny how things turn out! I used the Gina K Designs stamp set entitled Tree Silhouettes. I have only a couple Gina K Designs stamp sets, but have quite a wish list! Not only does Gina K sell stamp sets, but card stock, inks, and embellishments that coordinate, and digital papers. Each month, Gina K Designs releases new stamp sets, card stock colors, and coordinating embellishments. I am always amazed at the designs her team comes up with! Be sure to check out the Gina K online store.

The base of my card is Kraft card stock, layered with Very Vanilla and Garden Green card stock by Stampin' Up! The scallop edge was created using a Fiskars scallop punch and was cut twice--once on Garden Green, and once on Very Vanilla card stock. The scallops were then layered over one another, their position staggered. The trees image was stamped with Memento Cottage Ivy ink and was cut out and embossed with a Spellbinders Labels Three die. I sponged around the edge of the paper while still in the die and it created a somewhat misty/foggy look to the image. An ivory taffeta ribbon was added. Thanks for stopping by today and having a look! Have a GREAT day!!
