I love Lovely As A Tree, it's so versatile...here it makes a muted sympathy card. First job was to cut the aperture. After stamping the image in grey, directly on the front of a card blank, I inked up another piece of white card with a selection of sunset colours, just blending and mixing pale pink, oranges and yellows. I cut a similar sized circle from this inked up card.
Using the stamp positioning tool, I lined up the circle underneath the acetate sheet in the correct position and stamped the tree image on top.
Then it was just a matter of popping the circle into place, which I did, through the cut aperture.
I added a scored border and a generic With Sympathy sentiment. On the photograph below you can see how well the stamped images match up.
After a tip off from fellow DT member,Rocky, I will be entering this card in the challenge at House Of Cards, a new to me challenge blog where the theme for November is a stamped and cut window technique.
Sad, but uplifting was the idea behind this card. I have already had to use it, as a friend of mine lost their Mother in between me making this card and writing the post, it's always useful for me to have one or two of these cards ready to go as I rarely feel like crafting when I get sad news like this.
I made two, the second card using Wetlands and one of those glossy inked up and cling filmed backgrounds
The stamping of the sentiment was not really good enough to use this one as the DT ample but I'll keep it in my stash.
