New stamp and embossing folder

Good morning everyone,  wet and fairly windy here after a very dry and warm week. I hope all is well in your world...hugs

My week off work is coming to an end already, it's absolutely flown by!!! Still, I managed to get out with my camera a couple of days, had a lovely pub lunch with my cousin, and a lovely afternoon with a dear friend, as well as being able to watch the Tour of Britain each afternoon, and on top of that, I got to make some cards too. Here is one of them :o)


The basecard is my usual A4 white linencard folded and cut to just under 6x6.
Pearlised panel embossed with my new Embossalicious folder, then sponged with gilding wax.
I stamped my new Woodware image onto white 160gsm card, then coloured with Copic and Sakura pens before handcutting them.  I cut the sticklike trunks off then attached the trees with sticky foam pads.
I cut three pieces of bog standard string and frays the ends for the roots, then coloured with Copic pen before glueing them on as tree trunks!
Sentiment is an un-named stamp, the cut with Die-namics stitched die.
After I hadmade this card a sat thinking that I could surely cut trees like that on my Cricut so I set too and designed some in SCAL, I will show you the resulting card/s later :o)

A beautiful card, Jackie! That is a lovely stamp. Good to hear you have enjoyed your week off and been out and about. The tour of Britain came very close to where I work but all we saw were the helicopters, as it was right on home time when the parents were collecting the children

Wow I love this one Jackie, so beautiful! Glad you have enjoyed your little holiday too, looks as if you had a great time;)The one layer card thing you mentioned.It was decided a while ago over at 'LIM' that one layer meant one layer of card and we could add minimal embellishments (see challenge rules).Just as well as I hate one layer cards mostly, but will make one if I can add a few 'bits' lol. HTH hugs ;) Viv xx
