Just Add Ink has a new theme challenge this week, Just Add Christmas. I love to make Christmas Cards and for this challenge I made a card using one of my favourite stamp sets, Lovely as a Tree. I have made this card once before, but I never got around to blogging it and it was such fun, so decided to make another one for this challenge. I started with some Bordering Blue textured cardstock. I trimmed and scored the card to make a stepcard base. I then trimmed a piece of Whisper White cardstock to be 5mm smaller than the Bordering Blue cardstock. Before scoring the Whisper White cardstock. I stamped the group of trees from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set into the middle of the card using Bordering Blue ink. I then stamped 3 pine trees. The two outer trees I used the rock and roll technique using Bordering Blue as the base and Old Olive for the outer. For the centre tree I used Old Olive as the base and daubered Bordering Blue randomly on the image before stamping. I then score the cardstock. Before adhered it to the base card, I trimmed around the top of the three pine trees so that they create a 3D affect. With some scraps of Whisper White Cardstock, I created some snowdrifts. On one I stamped the sentiment from the Contempo Christmas stamp set. I then used the 2 way glue pen to adhere so Dazzling diamonds to the edge of the cutout snowdrift. I finished off the card by using the 2 way glue pen to add Dazzling Diamonds to the Pine Trees.
