From the Treetops

This is just a quick post for K. Werner's Color Challenge. I really liked the combo of the orange and blue hues.

Here's how I did it:

  1. Create card base by trimming cardstock to 4.25" x 11", then score at 5.5"
  2. Stamp tree image on white cardstock, then cut out and adhere to card base.
  3. Punch circles on orange and berry cardstock.
  4. Stamp journal stamp on circles with versamark ink
  5. Crumple circles to distress
  6. Adhere circles to the tree limbs
  7. Add brads
  8. Stitch around the edge of card base
  9. Stamp sentiment on berry cardstock and adhere to card base off-centered with a brad on the right side
