More Christmas Trees... (WMC29)

Today I am posting another Christmas card where I used the clear tree stamp from Hero Arts.  And I have decided to enter this card in the Wee Memories Challenge, this weeks' theme is "free for all".

Paper: PTI
Stamps: Hero Arts, PTI (text)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Brushed Corduroy & Peeled Paint Distress Ink
Other: Hero Art gems, Bell, Twine

I first stamped the bottom of the kraft card with a PTI text stamp from their Christmas Background Stamp set, using the Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.  I punched two strips of cardstock with an EK Success lace punch and wrapped some twine around it and adhered these above the text.  The two trees were stamped, cut out and inked with Peeled Paint and Brushed Corduroy Distress ink, and adhered to the Rustic White cardstock which was also inked around the edges with the same Brushed Corduroy ink.  A few gems, a sentiment, a little bell and there you have it!

I hope you enjoy it.  Thank you for visiting my blog.  Leave me a comment, I love to read each one!
