Welcome to Wednesday!
I'm jumping to Christmas or perhaps, preparing for Christmas.
For my family, we use an artificial tree and we use the same one for YEARS!
We had the same tree for 12 years, then it started falling apart so it had to go.
For the next three years, we each made a homemade tree and used those
until the cats, dog, and packing got the better of them.
Last year, we broke down and bought a new artificial tree.
We will put it up the day after Thanksgiving, or as some people call it
Black Friday. I'm more of a Cyber Monday type of person
Today I'm doing a photo tutorial of how I made this card
Step One: Stamped using Memento in Tuxedo Black
Step Two: Stamped using Tim Holtz in Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, Squeezed Lemonade, and Gathered Twigs. Fussy cut them out and fringed the edges of a couple of trees.
Step Three: Colored the image using Copic markers. Fussy cut along the top edge of ground, truck & trees but not all the way to the edges of the card.
Step Four: Inserted trees behind the truck and glued into place
Step Five: Finish it off by topping the Star in Sparkly Nuvo, adding a bit of White Puffy Paint for snow, and Tattered Angles Glimmer Glaze in Waterfall on the truck windows.
The back: The new Unity Company Stamp! AWESOME!!!
Stamp Set used for this one is the October Kit of the Month
You can sign up for it HERE
It is a monthly subscription and a super fun to be a part of!
And a bonus card: It's one layer using a multiple stamp technique so you get shades of the color
Don't forget to leave a comment on each day's post to be entered in the drawing!
