Lovely as a Tree



As I was unpacking, I found the box with the cards that I had cut the layers for, but never finished. So, I had to stop unpacking and instead worked on this card..

The card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", card base is a Bazzil cardstock, do not remember the company that is printed paper is made by. It is very pretty, has metallic look to it. I used Bazzil metallic Copper cardstock to emboss the trees on (in copper embossing powder). Then cut that layer in three panels. I really like this layout.

Check out the inside view of the card.. I stamped the trees in light brown color and then stamped the greeting over them using darker ink.


The trees stamp is from Stampin Up' set "Lovely as a Tree" and the greeting is from Stampin' Up set called "It's your Birthday".

You have to forgive me for the poor quality of the photos, I still have to figure out the right place in the house to take photos of the cards. I am thinking about investing in a light box...


Now I am working on the Winter Tilda card, and will show it to you within a few days.

Wow, and I thought I was the only one to do that sort of thing. ;)

Irina,

I love this card! And I saw it when I was in Cranberry Hill on Sunday and bought it. It is even more beautiful than on your blog! Of course now I need to buy this stamp!
