Moon in the Trees

Another of the cards we made in card class this week.  I wish I could take credit for this pretty design but I CASEd it from a card on Splitcoaststampers.  I just searched to find the original creator and give credit but couldn't find it.  (There are over 7000 cards in the Lovely as a Tree gallery!)  I'm sorry I'm not giving proper credit.  Next time I'll be sure to mark cards I want to case in my favs.   My version just  has the colors changed a little and the greeting moved around.

Project Notes:
  • The trees are stamped and stamped off in black pigment ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.
  • The moon is masked with a circle cut from CM circle cutting system or you could use a punch.
  • I used a blue pastel near the "ground."  Tempting Turquiose and Taken with Teal pastels make up the rest of the background.  It takes very little of them to create a pretty effect and allow the moon to show.
  • I like this card because it is very flat and easy to mail; a good thing for Sympathy cards.

Our next class is Birthday cards on March 20.  If you are in my area and would like to attend, e-mail me for details.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great weekend; hopefully warm and safe wherever you are.
