CARD DETAILS

I started working on my card by stamping a background pattern using one of the images from the Winter Woodland stamp set from Winnie & Walter. I picked the pine branch and also used Hero Arts Green Ombre ink for my stamping. By using this particular ink and not just a one color ink pad I was able to add a lot of interest to this otherwise simple stamped background.

I stamped the branch a few times always rotating it and making sure it faced a different direction every time. Next, I trimmed my panel to 4 x 5 1/4″ and foam mounted onto an A2 side folding card base.

To create a sentiment for this project I used another trick I love lately – I heat embossed a skinny sentiments strip “Season’s Greetings” from the Comfort + Joy set in white embossing powder onto black cardstock 3 times, trimmed each into a narrow strip and foam mounted onto my card using black foam adhesive.

Finally, to embellish this card I added number of brown drops using Nuvo Crystal Drops in Dark Walnut to imitate pinecones.

    1. Beautiful card Yana! Love your background cards! You always inspire me to give them a try! How do you get those nuvo drops so perfectly round? Love it! Oh and by the way….I have been saving color pallets since your video on how you chose your colors! Fantastic tip! Thanks so much!

    1. What a gorgeous background with the ombre trees, Yana! I love the addition of the Nuvo drops. So beautiful and elegant!

    1. Very unusual take with a traditional image. I love it! Your sentiments and brown dots are so striking against the stamped background of pine. Thanks for sharing and thanks to Winnie & Walter for all the fun activities on WCMD. Happy World Cardmaking Day!

    1. Great use of ombre colours …such a wonderful all over design.

    1. I knew I purchase those Hero Arts ombre ink pads for a reason. That background is stunning. Thanks for the inspiration

    1. This card is beautiful! I love how you used the Nuvo Drops to appear to be pinecones on your card. Using the ombre ink on the pine branch really added to the card, as well!

    1. Your card is a wonderful twist on the expected color combo and design, and so unique and creative! Love the Nuvo drop berries.

    1. Wow! Love this! So classy. Great colours. I have the Winter Woodland set and have yet to use it. TFS the idea.
