Lovely Winter Trees

Wow!  I am on a roll and I MUST keep this up!   This is 3 posts this week! 

Today I am sharing a simple card I created for my Christmas card club.  It is much prettier in person but I really wanted to share it.

I masked off the edges of the vanilla paper, leaving a rectangle in the center.  I sponged it with Pistachio Pudding ink.  I then inked up  the evergreen (from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set) with Always Artichoke and colored the trunk with an Early Espresso marker.  While leaving the mask on, I stamped the tree twice (one is darker and the other faint as I didn't re-ink it).  Then I repeated that step.  After I removed the mask, I inked the stamp a final time and stamped the full tree.  I added a greeting from the Joy To the World set and finally some Dazzling Diamonds to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by!
