Here is today's woodland themed card:
The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4." I used brown card stock for the card base, then but a piece of wood grain patterned card stock to be the mat. I used the Cricut Explore and an image from "Wild Card" to create the circular window. It was cut at 5 1/4"x4." The wood grain patterned card stock is from the Good Wood Stack by DCWV.
I stamped my birch tree images on some white card stock and mounted it behind the window. I colored in the lenticels with the vintage photo Distress Marker. FYI: the lenticels are those rips or tears you see in the bark of some trees, like birch. The birch trees and owl are from the Autumn Groves stamp set by Paper Smooches. The birch trees are stamped in rich cocoa ink and the owl is stamped in midnight black ink, both by Tsukineko.
The label is from the "First Few Years" cartridge. It was cut to fit the sentiment, so it is 0.841"x2.783." I then stamped the sentiment in midnight black ink by Tsukineko. The sentiment is another Paper Smooches stamp, this one is from the Salutations set. I then finished off the card with three brown sequins.
I made this for the following challenges:
Paper Smooches: photo inspiration
CASology: cue word - "NBUS" (never been used stuff) (the wood grain card stock, tree and owl stamps)
Tuesday Throwdown: sketch
