Peace on Earth


I haven't done a color challenge in a long time. This one is from Splitcoaststampers.com (challenge CC239). Colors to use: White, Kraft, Mellow Moss.

Supplies for the card:
Stamps: Lovely as a Tree from SU!
Inks: White Craft, Mellow Moss, White Gel Pen (optional) - all from SU!
Paper: Kraft cardstock, Mellow Moss DSP from SU!
Ribbon: White organza from a fabric store
Tools: Sponge dauber, Stamp-a-ma-jig, embossing tool

Steps:
  1. Cut Kraft to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2". Fold.
  2. Since I didn't have a greeting I wanted to use, I printed "Peace on Earth" on the cardstock from the English Vivace font my computer. Then I went over the text with a white gel pen - next week's TIPsy Tuesday will be about using your computer for text on cards.

  3. Stamp most prominent tree in Mellow Moss.

  4. Use stamping off to create remaining trees. I did 5 total including the main one. If you are using Mellow Moss craft ink, be sure to let it dry before step 6.

  5. Stamp a tree image on your imaging sheet of your Stamp-a-ma-jig.

  6. Using a sponge dauber, apply white craft ink to the edges and lightly to the center of your tree stamp.

  7. Use the Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the image and stamp over the main mellow moss tree with white craft ink.

  8. Use the sponge dauber to create snow.

  9. Sprinkle with white embossing powder and emboss.

  10. Sponge just a little white ink onto the edges and center of your tree and stamp (again using the Stamp-a-ma-jig) over at least some of your remaining trees. Do not emboss.

  11. Glue on a strip of Mellow Moss DSP and attach ribbon.
