One Layer Trees


I had a bit of time to work on Christmas cards today and I made a one layer card for the challenge at Just Us Girls.  I used some NBUS Lawn Fawn stamps, did a bit of masking for the sentiment and then added lots of bling.  The longest part of the process was deciding which green inks to use.  I think I might actually remake it with all green trees and then use red for the sentiment to make it pop a bit more.  I'll let you know how it turns out!  


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink
Stamps:  (Trees from Snow Day, Sentiment from Peace Joy Love) Lawn Fawn
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Real Red, Old Olive, Certainly Celery, Wild Wasabi, Lucky Limeade) Stampin' Up
Dies:  (Car) Taylored Expressions, (Flag) Reverse Confetti  
Gems:  Recollections

The mixture of greens you chose is very nice and the red trees add that pop of color for a nice effect! Love the card and will watch for 'take two'!

This is a brilliant design for a one layer card! I like the masking for the sentiment and the bright colours. And now I'll just go and pin this... ;)
