When the new catalog came out in January, I instantly fell in love with the wheel "Funky Forest" used here to make the trees on this card. I just couldn't quite figure out on my own how to use it best. I got this idea from cards I saw on Splitcoaststampers.com. The trees are rolled on in Certainly Celery and then I colored over the trunk and branches in brown marker. Simple, why didn't I think of that?
This card is also a good example of how all the Stampin' Up! products go together. There are only two colors used here: Certainly Celery ink, ribbon, and cardstock along with Chocolate Chip ink and paper. Quick, effective and everything matches beautifully. I also used the 'thank you' from a discontinued set: Spring Solitude.
