Merry Monday #156
Hello friends. Playing along with this weeks challenge over at Merry Monday. Pinecones, greens, and the word "Believe" are what we are being asked to include on our card, and my thoughts went right to SU!'s Ornamental Pine stamp set. Take a look at what I came up with:
Can you see how I incorporated the word "Believe"? I die cut my "Believe" (Serendipity Stamps) 6 times and glued them all together, before inlaying them into the main image. It's hard to photograph so that you can really see the depth this brings to the card, but IRL, it's an amazing look and fun technique! The pine branch and pinecones were stamped in Old Olive and Soft Suede inks and then I sponged Tumbled Glass Distress Ink all over my die cut circle (Lil Inkers). The snow was done by embossing with white and one of the images from "Gorgeous Grunge" (SU!). I layered with a piece of Real Red cardstock and attached that to a white card base.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do! :0)
