Welcome to Heart of Christmas for 2021. Each week (until mid-December), the talented ladies from the Art with Heart team will bring you inspiration for your holiday craft projects.
This week I decided to have a play with the Evergreen Elegance stamp set to create my clean and simple card. The stamp set has 3 pine tree images of different sizes as well as some lovely greetings.
I swiped a Balmy Blue ink pad across a panel of Basic White and then stamped the trees in the background in Just Jade ink, both full strength and stamped off. The tall pine tree was stamped in the foreground in Evening Evergreen ink and I added a trunk with a Early Espresso Stampin' Write marker. I cropped the panel to size with the Stitched Rectangle Dies.
I popped up a gold foil star at the top of the tall tree and added Gold Metallic Pearls to give it a Christmas feel. The greeting from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set was stamped in Evening Evergreen ink and cropped with the Stitched Rectangles Dies and popped up at the bottom. I added a strip of Balmy Blue patterned paper on the right side of the Basic White card base and adhered the art panel that was matted on Evening Evergreen card stock.
