For this card, I started with some Basic White Thick Cardstock, embossed it with the Macrame 3D Embossing Folder, and adhered it to a Basic White Thick Cardstock base. I then used a Sponge Dauber to add a swirl of Misty Moonlight to another piece of Basic White Thick Cardstock. I also added some speckling, using my NIght of Navy Stampin’ Write Marker. (To create the speckling, I “flicked” the thick end of the marker against the inside edge of the marker cap, and “flicked” outward towards the cardstock. I then used a few Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere it to a slightly larger piece of Basic White Thick Cardstock, and adhered the entire panel to the card base with a few more Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The tree (from the Whimsical Trees Bundle) were stamped in Magenta Madness, Misty Moonlight, and Pear Pizzazz. Before I stamped the image on the cardstock, I used a Sponge Daubers to add the three ink colors to the stamp. I then cut it out with the coordinating die from the same bundle, and popped it up with a few Stampin’ Dimensionals. For the two little trees, I used the Be Dazzling Specialty Paper (from the current Sale-A-Bration catalog), along two of the dies from the Whimsical Trees Bundle.
The sentiment (also from the Whimsical Trees Bundle) was heat-embossed on Magenta Madness Cardstock, using my Versamark Pad and White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Tucked the trees, are some fibers that I pulled from some Polished Pink Open Weave Ribbon. For a bit of bling, I added a few of the Artistry Blooms Sequins.
