A tree for all seasons

Bargain Stamp Set!!!

I love this set as you can either use all 4 stamps together (As above) or each one alone... The set is only £12.95!!! (see page 44 in the catalogue)

Stamps: A Tree For All Seasons, Cheer & Wishes
Ink: Basic Black, Mellow Moss
Cardstock: Whisper White, Close to Cocoa, Mellow Moss
Seasoning: Twill Tape

- I made a card blank from Close to Cocoa card sized 12" x 4 3/4". Folded along the shorter side, this makes an interesting gate-fold I think...

- I then used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to position and stamp each image onto Whisper White using Mellow Moss ink. Each square of white measures approx 1 3/4". These are mounted onto a square of Mellow Moss card and the edges of this are slightly distressed.

- Stamp your greeting onto the Twill Tape with Basic Black. Prick along one edge of a strip of Mellow Moss and wrap the Tape around this...

- Assemble as shown.

FYI... Im going to attempt this card using the pastels and VersaMark ink pad to see what effects I can achieve... Stay posted for the results, could be interesting!!!

Thanks for Looking...
