Holiday Card Series 2019 – Day 13 – Simple Trees

Happy Friday! For Day 13 of the Holiday Card Series, I thought I would create a simple stamped and embossed card using the Color Layering Nordic Tree stamp set from Hero Arts. A card like this is a great card for duplication if you have lots of holiday cards to make!

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

I started out by stamping the solid tree images from the Color Layering Nordic Tree stamp set in three colors of WPlus9 Ink: Last Leaf, Ocean Drive, and Sweet Gelato.

While I waited for the inked trees to completely dry, I stamped the greeting in VersaMark ink and coated it with Sterling embossing powder from Brutus Monroe. Then I heat set the embossing powder.

Once the trees were completely dry, I stamped the intricate tree designs from the stamp set over the top of the colorful trees in VersaMark ink. I applied the same silver embossing powder to the trees and heat set them with my heat tool.

The stamped panel was then adhered to a 7×5 card base made out of Desert Storm cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by today! I’ll be back soon with Day 14!
