Creative Nugget: I love the new Tender Thoughts stamp set and the Birch Forest Dies! A background was masked and sponged with Memento inks to look like the sun is rising over the snow drifts. The birch forest was cut from True Black card stock and white embossed. The trees can be used as is or they can be separated to accommodate the size of your card as was done here. The trees were popped up with foam tape on the sponged background to create depth. A black frame was cut using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics dies and attached to the tree panel. Snow drifts were torn from Solar Crest paper...one drift was embossed with Swiss Dots while a sentiment from Sympathy Innies was stamped on the other. These were also attached with foam tape. The deer was cut from Smokey Shadow and stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink, and a few Cherry Cobbler birds were stamped, hand cut and added to finish this card.
Creative Nugget: The pattern for this card came from the Technique Junkies' Designer Paper Perfection CD. The Authentique papers were cut using the directions on the CD. It's hard to see, but the first cut in the DP was made with a Decorative Plaque Die. The panels were loosely stitched (still getting used to the tension on my new sewing machine...I miss my old Sew Mini) to True Black card stock and attached to a Baja Breeze card base. The sentiment, from the new Sympathy Innies stamp set, was stamped, cut and matted to a Baja Breese oval, and attached to the card. A black bow and a few mulberry roses finish the card.
