For the Details of this card:
The card base is Old Olive which has been cut to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″ and folded in half. I added a 2 3/4″ x 4″ piece of floral designer paper from the Pretty Petals Designer paper stack. Next is a piece of Chevron ribbon.
The background image is stamped on a layer of very vanilla cardstock ( 2 3/4″ x 4″) that I sponged with Pear Pizazz ink to look like grass. I then stamped the trees with Chocolate Chip ink and Pear Pizazz ink. NOTE: I stamped off the trees and leaves on scrap paper to make a lighter shadow image to give the look of a background forest. The clouds are stamped with Soft Sky ink. To add a little more depth to the grass, I added 2 scraps of pear pizazz cardstock that I ripped to make a raw edge. I love this look for natural backgrounds.
Last I stamped the tree trunk with Chocolate Chip ink and the leaves with Old Olive ink on scraps of very vanilla cardstock. They were punched out using the Tree Builder punch and added to a half circle cut from So Saffron cardstock. I used dimensionals to help this image to pop. Last but not least I added a little blue bird that was stamped with Marina Mist Ink.
