| I used Distress Markers to outline the edges of the dress |
and then added glitter to make her stand out.
The tree [tree3] is from the Heritage cartridge and is cut at 4 1/2 inches. I inked that up with lots of different Distress Ink Pads because I couldn't find the right paper. I gently tapped the colors randomly onto the die cut.
|Colors used: Evergreen Bough, Festive Berries, |
Antique Linen, Wild Honey.
The leaves [leaf] are from the Doodlecharms cartridge - an oldie but a goodie. I cut those at a 1/2 and 3/4 inches. I was nervous because I never cut anything that small on purpose. But it worked like a charm. I inked those up with the same Distress Pads, too. That way they would match my tree.
Now for the background. I used washi tape to create a kind of road across the background. I used the Musical Flourish folder for the background and then inked the embossed parts lightly. I only embossed the part above the washi tape to create a distinction between earth and sky. I rounded the corners with We R Memory Keepers corner chompers.
|I purposely made the tree bigger than I needed so|
I had to trim it. It took me a day to find
|The final product :)|
So that's it - an auutmnal card for any occasion.
