Monday Mashup #16...


Morning and welcome to my Monday Mashup.  I hope you have had a lovely weekend.

I spent some time in my craft room making up a few bits and pieces in preparation for Christmas and attended a wonderful Crafternoon Tea hosted by a couple of fellow demos on Sunday afternoon which made a very pleasant change.  As much as I love hosting classes, it is always nice to sit back and enjoy somebody else's hard work!

Today I have dusted off a stamp set which I purchased at the end of last year's Christmas season and never really showcased it to its full.  It is Perfectly Plaid which has a co-ordinating punch.


And here is what I made....

I started by drawing a hill on the front of my Thick Whisper White card and cut away the excess above the hill.  I then lined up a Balmy Blue layer underneath and lightly drew where the hill line was.  I then stamped the tree in Garden Green ink in first and second generation roughly following the hill line.  I also stamped a spare tree on a piece of Balmy Blue cardstock, punched it out and added a trunk using Early Espresso ink.

I then sponged the hill using Whisper White ink and also a little in the sky for clouds.  Once dry I added some snowflakes using my favourite snow stamp from the Nature's Beauty stamp set to the sky and the spare tree.  I glued the Balmy Blue layer to the inside of my card.

I stamped the greeting in Early Espresso ink.  I then punched out my tree and attached it to the front hill, stamped and cut out a couple of pine cones and attached them with a linen bow.  Finally I added a little embossing paste to the bottom of my tree on the front.

This is how the card looks from the top.

I have a video for you showing the various steps.

I hope you like my project today and will give it a go for yourself.
