So many fun holiday stamp sets are coming out this year. I just saw Essentials by Ellen’s Tree Farm stamp set and fell in love with the concept. I don’t own that set and won’t before Christmas, so I made do with the stamps I have. This is just one more thing to love about paper crafting and stamping.



Size:  Horizontal side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started with a panel of water color paper cut to the exact size of an A2 card front. Next, I stamped my images. I started with the deer, sled, and trailer. I didn’t want to do any masking, so I made sure to stamp the focal images first and build around them.

The trees were stamped to fill in the background. I used two different tree stamps to add some interest. I also used a green pigment ink for the solid tree images. Just as I added my last tree on the left hand side, I remembered that I hadn’t stamped a sentiment yet. So, I looked through my stash and found a sentiment that would fit the area I had left.

I used Distress Inks to water color everything with. I even used some dark green Distress Ink to add shading to my solid stamp trees.

Once all of the Distress Inks were dry, I adhered the panel to a card base and the card was finished.
