Traditional Pines

Happy Monday morning, today looks to be a very productive day. I enjoyed a beautiful weekend with my family.I wish the weather could stay like this all winter. Well, maybe not all winter we do need some snow for Christmas and sledding over the school break but other than that a mild winter would be fine with me. I see that over the weekend my blog hits reached 13,000. Thank you to all of you that stop by and check out my blog I really appreciate it and I hope you find ideas that inspire you. I have never given away blog candy but thought now would be a great time to start. Leave me a comment on this post about your favorite holiday tradition and I will use random org. to pick one lucky winner of the Patterned Pines Stamp Set (116525) that I used for today's card. I will pick a winner on Thursday so you have a few days to comment.
Now to move onto today's card. I actually made two very different cards with the Patterned Pines Stamp Set this morning and I will show you the traditional one today and the other one tomorrow. The card is fairly simple and would be a easy card to mass produce. I started with a Old Olive Card Stock (100702) Base cut 4 1/4" by 11" and folded in half to make a finished card with dimensions of 4 1/4 by 5 1/2". I used my Old Olive Stampin' Write Marker (100079) to ink up the be merry from the Warm Words Stamp Set (115108) and stamped it on the bottom right corner. I then added a layer of Old Olive Striped DSP from the Merry Moments Designer Series Paper (115672). I scalloped the bottom edge with the Scallop Edge Punch (112091) before I added it to the card. I little Old Olive Taffeta Ribbon from the Mistletoe Ribbon Originals (116792) was knotted toward the bottom of the card. The Real Red Card Stock (102482) was cut to 3" x 3 1/4" and added to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. I cut a piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock (101650) 2 3/4" x 3" and added it on the Real Red Card Stock. I used the main image which consist of the three trees. I used the Real Red (100052), Certainly Celery (105106), Old Olive (100079)Stampin' Write Markers to ink up the trees then stamped then on Very Vanilla Card Stock and cut them out and added them to the Very Vanilla Card Stock. The Real Red Tree is added with dimensionals.

How could you put snow in the background?

You could add snow to the background with 2-way glue and Dazzling Diamonds or you could add a layer of torn Whisper White Card Stock to give a snowy edge. I will be happy to show you an example or two on Friday. HTH, Tonya
