I stamped the tree three times in Always Artichoke ink onto Whisper White cardstock. I sponged More Mustard ink around the trees. I sponged Bravo Burgundy ink in the sky. I took the small eye-makeup sponge applicator and inked it with Always Artichoke and sponged on top of the trees to fill them in and give them some depth. I framed the stamped image with Always Artichoke cardstock.
I sponged a small piece of Whisper White cardstock with More Mustard ink, stamped the sentiment on top with Bravo Burgundy ink and punched it out with a small oval. I framed the sentiment on a medium oval of Always Artichoke cardstock.
I ran a large piece of Bravo Burgundy cardstock through my Big Shot with the Forest Branches embossing folder. I lightly sponged Bravo Burgundy ink on top of the embossing to highlight it. I mounted the embossed cardstock onto a card base of Always Artichoke.
I mounted the framed main image on top, weighting it at the bottom, and popping it up with dimensionals to add depth.
I mounted the framed sentiment on top of the main image.
