Hello eveyone! I'm back with Day Eight of my Christmas Card Series of 2016 and today I'm going to be making a set of four cards using the "Sketched Evergreen" stamp set from Altenew.
To begin my card I started off with stamping out my tree onto my cardstock. I'm using Primitive Cream cardstock from MFT for my panels today since it has all the natural flecks in it and makes it nicer for a one layer card. I'm using the layering inks from Altenew today as well, since they're my favorite and they come in layering sets already. Using a MISTI tool makes it a lot easier too. Once I had stamped the three layers of the tree, I stamped the tree stand as well. By the way, all the colours I used will be listed in the supplies below. Once all my layers were done I then moved onto stamping the sentiment. I used the same "Sketched Evergreen" stamp set and some Versafine Onyx Black ink for the stamping. Then I wanted to use some gold for the star on top and the ampersand. So I used some Versamark ink to stamp down the ampersand and the star and then used gold embossing powder and melted it with my heat tool.
Now that the stamping was done, I adhered my panels onto my card bases. Then I needed some ornaments for the tree, just for a pop of colour so I took my stash of red enamel dots and adhered them onto the trees randomly. For a finishing touch I added some Wink of Stella in the clear and added that all over the trees.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you got inspired and I'll be back soon with day nine.
