I have quick post tonight to share a card I made for my sister for her birthday. The inspiration for this card came from a Christmas card I received this year. I loved the idea so much, but I didn't want to wait for next year to make it so instead of a holiday sentiment, I used a birthday sentiment. Here it is:
To create the grove of trees, I inked my stamp up and stamped the image three times so that each image was lighter than the one before it. I did this step two times. To create the snow, I took the "leaf" image and stamped with Versa Mark ink and topped it with white, sparkly embossing powder. I also embossed the sentiment so that it sparkled too.
Now for the toot! My year is ending on a high note. Remember my "Money Doesn't Grow On Trees" card from this post which I created for the Hero Arts Cards That Give Challenge? (See this post: http://eterno-lyyours.blogspot.com/2009/12/money-doesnt-grow-on-trees.html. Well, I just found out today that I am the "fresh face" winner! You can see my card and all of the other winners on the Hero Arts blog. Here's a link: http://heroarts.com/blogs/club/2009/12/31/cards-that-give-challenge-winners/ . Well maybe money doesn't grow on trees but rubber stamps do! I can't wait to go on my Hero Arts spending spree!
Wishing all of you a happy and healthy 2010!
