CYCI 93 fall tree thank you card b wm

This week’s challenge is a designer’s choice in the theme of Fall.

CYCI 93 Fall due 10-30-15

While I adore the rich Autumnal colors so prevelant this time of year, I decided to try something a little different for this card. Instead of the deeper yellows, green, and reds, I used much softer colors: So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, and Blushing Bride.

The Lovely As a Tree stamp set is perfect for this card. I inked the foliage part of the tree with the So Saffron Classic Stampin’ Pad; then I used a Sponge Dauber to apply Blushing Bride, then Pear Pizzazz. I colored in the tree trunk with a Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker. Then I huffed and I puffed, and stamped the image on Very Vanilla card stock.

I stamped the Early Espresso sentiment, from the Tin of Cards stamp set, overlapping the tree.

I stamped the arrows, from the Chalk Lines stamp set, twice in Pear Pizzazz – once above the sentiment and once below – to create the illusion of long continuous lines that are simply broken up by the sentiment.

And finally, I matted the stamped piece with Soft Suede, then adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the Pear Pizzazz card base.
