A Work of Art Festival of Trees

Today I wanted to make a soft looking Christmas or winter card.  I used the Coastal Cabana card stock and ink to achieve it.  I inked up the zig zag image and stamped it in the center of the card stock.  I didn't try to get it perfectly centered, it didn't matter.  Then I moved the stamp down and over and stamped again without inking it up and I moved the image over to the other side and down and stamped again.  Then for the top part I inked up the image, stamped off once and I turned the card stock upside down and stamped the image to one side and then I moved down with the image and stamped it one last time.  That made a total of 5 zig zags on the card.  The ones on the top and bottom are extremely light.  If you click on the photo you will see a larger image of it and you can see that light stamping better. 

Next I took the round image in the set and stamped several dots around the card.  As you can see, some of those are light too.

Then I stamped the words.  Those came from the Petite Pairs set.  Then I textured the card stock.   I set it aside and I stamped and punched out the tree.  Then I set it in place using Dimensionals.  

I taped the textured piece to a folded half sheet of Coastal Cabana card stock and it was done.  Very quick, very simple, and very wintery looking!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
