Life is Beautiful, Thinking of You Card, 2020 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog

I was looking for a fun card to make using the "Life is Beautiful" set and I ran across this one. You can see the original here.  I thought it was pretty. I love the softness to it.  I did change the card a little. 

This is a very quick and easy card to make. I am thinking of finding my "Let it Snow" words from the "Snowman Season" set and making some for our Christmas cards.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Night of Navy card stock. On top of the Night of Navy is a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Seaside Spray. And the top focal Whisper White piece was cut 3-5/8" x 4-7/8". 

The tree trunk was stamped first using Night of Navy ink. I was amazed at how pretty that image turned out. The details in the trunk and branches are nice and crisp. I usually get big globs of ink in spots I don't want. My ink pad must have just the right amount of ink on it.

Next I stamped the snow image using Seaside Spray ink. It was tamped four times.

The words are from the "Life is Beautiful" set and stamped using Night of Navy ink. The Whisper White focal panel is taped to the front of the card and the card was done. I told you it was quick and easy.  This card can be used for Thinking of You, Get Well, Birthday, and Christmas. It could be used for a thank you card after Christmas too! Lots of uses for this layout/image.

Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop by today,
