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. At first view, I would have sworn that the branches were done with metallic heat embossing or ink! Glad I read the post–hmm…maybe I DO need some ombre ink pads! Thanks so much for this beautiful card.

    1. What a great idea to use the ombré ink and walnut Nuvo Dots. Brilliant!!

    1. Your card is beautiful! That ombre ink pad made those branches fabulous. I thought they were foiled at first.

    1. Awesome job, as always! I love the ombré ink and the triple sentiment is perfect!

    1. I saw this card several times before I actually read the directions and always wondered how you got the great color effect on the pine springs. Now, finally I read the post and understand it was the HA ombre inks – got to get that pad. The colors are just wonderful – like the card!

    1. Love the card. What I find so original about it is your use of the brown Nuvo drops. I would never even have thought to buy them, much less to use them in such a beautiful way. Just gorgeous! Great inspiration. Thank you

    1. You always make fabulous backgrounds. This card is no exception . Absolutely gorgeous.

    1. Very nice card! Enjoying the colors you used, something different. Thank you for changing it up, nice idea!
