Hi Folks! Are you ready for the fourth day of the new CAS-ual Fridays Stamps release? This set has some great pinecones, but there is also a pine tree sprig that I am MADLY in love with!
I stamped it three times to make this adorable little Christmas tree, plus a few more generational stampings. The greeting, which also comes in the set, is embossed on a strip of red paper that I just notched the ends. Woodgrain paper makes a nice little trunk, the seam of which is conveniently hidden under the banner. The embossed dots on the bottom are my representation of a snow-covered ground. And finally some blue and white polk-a-dot on the inside finishes it off.
Like the wheat wreath stamp from the first day of this release, I love the pine branch so much that I kept playing around with it. I LOVE how easy this Christmas tree is to stamp, yet the finished tree fills such a large part of the card base. There are two different inks used here to make the tree a little more realistic, and some generational stamping as well. The sequins are vintage (they have such a rich finish to them ... in between gold and bronze) and the sentiment is embossed in bronze.
