Wonder and Joy


 I made this card for the Ways to Use It Challenge over on Split Coast  - Faux letterpress - or inking your embossing folder inside and then embossing your card stock!

I used my Tim Holtz Tall Pines Sizzix embossing folder - I inked it with Memento Paris Dusk Ink (like navy) - so the trees show the green of the textured card stock (Core dinations) and the surrounding areas were darkened with the ink - I was thinking it would make it look like 'night time' in the forest!?!

The pine panel was punched with my new Martha Stewart Punch (on sale at Joann's!) I added some Diamond Stickles to give it a little shimmer.

The sentiment is the last two words of a larger sentiment stamp from Rubbernecker  - the full stamp says 'Wishing You a Holiday Full of Wonder and Joy"

The sentiment is die cut with Trio Labels by Spellbinders and adhered with foam tape. I added a few rhinestones to the trees to finish it off.

I used the colors from the CR84FN43 challenge.
