I used the Lovely as a Tree stamp set. With Black Staz-On ink, I stamped on some vellum paper, then colored the image with markers. I then flipped my image over to give it the softer, water-colored look. In order to give it a little more color, I mounted the vellum on a square of Pear Pizazz card stock, then mounted that square on a larger square of So Saffron card stock. I had to experiment a little -- initially I thought of mounting the vellum on some Marina Mist or Bashful Blue card stock to give the appearance of blue sky behind the tree -- that worked until I started thinking that it looked like my tree was suspended in the sky and I just couldn't get past that image in my mind!
Using my Big Shot, I dry-embossed a strip of Cajun Craze card stock with the Polkadot folder. I just love this color card stock for fall cards! I tied a piece of Chocolate Chip satin ribbon around the embossed strip, then tied to little tags (since this is anniversary!) to the ribbon using some linen thread.
I think the sentiments were from Small Script and Teeny Tiny Wishes, but the "Forever" could have also been from my Fundamental Phrases stamp set.
Now... shhh! This card will be for my husband -- how appropriate to make this card this week! It's our 21st Anniversary on Thursday, and it's about time I have a card made in time for the occasion!!
Thanks for looking! Tomorrow, I'll share 2 more fall-themed cards (one uses the same Lovely as a Tree image) in honor of World Card-Making Day! Get out there and stamp!!!
