I was so tickled with myself to get a card made for this week's Make It Monday challenge ON MONDAY... but then, it took me until now to actually get the photo uploaded and blog it, so I guess no gold star for me after all. LOL! But I do really love this challenge - did you see Betsy's card?? Oh my goodness, it's gorgeous! I decided to go with my Winterberry stamp set, which I got last month, but just got the dies for it when they came out this month. I layered the background with both images and sentiments from the set, stamping off lightly first to get a subtle image. I also stamped a few of the small sprigs, and the berry cluster from Harvest Berries, without stamping off first. I think the variation in the "boldness" of the stamping adds a lot of wonderful depth.
I popped up the die-cut tree, colored with Copics, and added a sweet Little Bitty Bird and a Tiny Tag 2. The patterned paper background is from Echo Park, and the Mega Mat Stack 1 is on Fine Linen, with the tree, bird and tag all cut from Vintage Cream, and a Vintage Cream card base.
Both the tree + bird, and the mat stack, are popped up on dimensional adhesive.
Thanks for looking! :)
