The Christmas trees were created by sponging through a template I made by punching out a pennant shape with my new Petite Pennants punch. I love how you can use these supplies in all sorts of different ways! I think the Naturals Ivory card stock makes the perfect base for a card with this kind of homespun feel.
If I zoom in a bit you can see how I added the tree trunks. They're from Trendy Trees and are stamped quite softly in Soft Suede to give this distressed look. I added a greeting over the top in Early Espresso - can you guess which set it's from? It's from Welcome Christmas - a set that I'm loving more and more. What I really need to do is sit down with it for a few hours and let it show me what it can really do!
Here's another version of the card, this time stamped on a 9cm square card base. I love the different greens together - I used Certainly Celery, Pear Pizzazz and Wild Wasabi - and I like the effect where they overlap.
Supplies needed for this card:
Stamps: Welcome Christmas (sentiment)
Ink: Soft Suede, Wild Wasabi, Certainly Celery, Pear Pizzazz
Card stock: Naturals Ivory
Other: Petite Pennants punch, Sponge Daubers, Early Espresso marker, stamp-a-majig

Our heatwave is finally over and the winds of autumn have started to blow. Windy weather always reminds me of a time when I was a small child. I remember my sister and me being doubled up, helpless with laughter in the back in the car, watching an unfortunate lady chasing her hat down the street. Every time she bent over to grab it, the wind would whisk it away again and she would set off in hot pursuit while my sister and I screamed with laughter! Weren't we wicked?!!
Goodness - is it nearly the end of the week already? Tomorrow will be the last of my prize draws and the winners will be announced on Monday. Will one of them be you?!!!
I shall be back tomorrow with some leafy fun so do come back and see!
