Lovely As A Tree By Mitosu Crafts

Today it’s Jay who is sharing a post he wrote back in October last year!

Hi it’s Jay here with my Design Team card project using the Photo Inspiration Challenge from Paper Craft Crew.

I created this simple looking card with the Lovely As A Tree stamp set and a bit of sponging. I also used the Stamparatus to ensure the CLEAR mount stamp is straight for the horizon then stamped with Versamark to heat emboss the tree outlines in Black.

To create the sky and grass I created my own stencil by stamping the trees on scrap paper and cutting along the horizon. The two pieces were utilised for the masking and sponging techniques on the card. I then applied Balmy Blue first followed by Mango Melody for the top part. I then switched stencils to sponge the Granny Apple Green grass

On the bottom left of the card, I sponged Soft Sea Foam lightly then stamped another stamp from the same set in the same colour.

Adding Texture

Once I was happy with the overall look, I embossed the card front with the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder through the Big Shot to add texture to the card.

I was shocked when my sister told me that she preferred the cold weather many years ago. She continued on and said that it’s easier to get warmer than to get cooler! It does make sense and Barry says the same thing also. Which season do you prefer?
