Are you just beginning to make cards and are looking for ideas which don’t use tons of special tools? This card uses two stamp sets but the stamped frame could easily be swapped for a layer of brown card stock. It also uses two colors of card stock which could be pared down to one, either white or vanilla. It also uses three colors of ink which could switched to just one by stamping off the evening evergreen ink for the background stamping and of course using colored card stock for the frame.
The frame is stamped onto a piece of Basic White using Soft Suede ink with the frame stamp from the Framed for You (Retired) stamp set. Next, take 4 post it notes and stick to the frame so that the ink won’t stamp onto the frame. Stamp the tree stamp from the Campology set with Evening Evergreen ink into the frame. Cut out the frame with scissors.
For the card base, cut a piece of Very Vanilla card stock 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and score at 4 1/4″. Stamp the trees in the center of the card front with Sahara Sand ink and the greeting in the bottom right hand corner with Evening Evergreen ink.
Add the frame using dimensionals, lining up the tree top on the base with the trees on the frame piece.
I hope that you enjoyed this card. It was inspired by the image below from The Card Concept Challenge. I enjoy using the images from The Card Concept Challenges for inspiration.
The first thing that I was when I looked at this photo was the Hudson Bay Point Blanket and the next thing was the framed photo. Be sure to check out my blog post from yesterday for the card that I entered into the challenge. I was so inspired that I made several cards from ideas inspired by this photo.
