It's Libby Fens' turn to host our theme challenge this week and so it's all about trees. What a great theme, considering how many wonderful trees and leaves there are among Stampin' Up!'s current products.
Since I was itching to play with the new Presents & Pinecones suite, I decided to combine the wonderful evergreen tree from the classic Lovely as a Tree set with the new Pine Bough embossing folder. And what a great combination they make! I used a base of the Heavy Whisper White followed by a layer of Wild Wasabi cardstock. Then I added a piece of Whisper White onto which I first stamped the evergreen using Almost Artichoke and Soft Suede. After that I lined up the Pine Bough embossing folder to avoid the stamped tree and still leave room for a sentiment.
I hope you'll check out the wonderful cards by the other Watercooler Artists at our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
