My card base is Cherry Cobbler card stock. I added a layer of Naturals Ivory card stock.
The color challenge was Very Vanilla but I wanted the look of the Naturals Ivory for this card. With the Big Shot, I embossed a piece of the Naturals Ivory card stock with the Snow Burst embossing folder and matted it with Cherry Cobbler. Always Artichoke Seam Binding was ruffled by pulling a couple of threads to get the ruffle. I added it to the embossed layer, added three Cherry Cobblerbrads and attached it to the card front. The single pine tree from the Lovely As a Tree stamp set was heat embossed on Naturals Ivory card stock with VersaMark, Always Artichoke ink and clear embossing powder. I punched out three squares with the 1" Square punch and matted each with Cherry Cobbler card stock. Dazzling Diamonds glitter was added to the branches with a 2-Way Glue Pen. The image pieces were added to the card front with mini glue dots and dimensionals. Dimensionals were only used on the right side because the embossed layer raised up the left side; that's where I used the glue dots. I see a few more of these cards in my future because it really was an easy card to put together. Have a great weekend. Take time to have fun and be creative.
