Lovely as a tree Mother's Day Card


Second post of the day!

I've been playing around with a stepper card.  My class next week is Mother's Day Cards and as my mother had commented that she liked the Lovely as a Tree stamp set  ...........  two birds with one stone?!!

I stamped the large image of the trees onto whisper white then cut it into two smaller images.  Using a blender pen and picking some ink direct from the ink pad I added some shading to the grass.  I then mounted them onto not quite navy.  The background papers are from the In Colour Designer Series Paper Pack available as a hostess gift set.  I used the Scallop Trim Border punch to make the not quite navy trim along the bottom of the card.  The sentiment is from Occasional Greetings and mounted onto peach parfait.

Materials Used
All Stampin' Up! supplies unless otherwise stated

Card Stock - Peach Parfait, Not Quite Navy, Whisper White
