Pine Trees Season's Greetings

Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Amy Ottmers our challenge hostess for the month, continues to issue the challenges.

Apparently today is Pickle Day! Are you in a right pickle or a cool as a cucumber??? For our challenge today create a card inspired by a pickle, either by including a pickle or food that goes with pickles on your card, use the color green ... or incorporate a pickle themed sentiment.

For my card today I opted to use the color green, using for the most part a monochromatic theme.

I received a few new toys this week which I was keen to play with. For the background of my card I created the stencil plaid background using Catherine Pooler Designs Just Plaid Slimline Stencil. I used Catherine Pooler's Green Tea ink for the color.

I die cut the stencil panel using a rectangle die from Trinity Stamps Slimline Stitched Card Panels and Windows die set. Along the bottom of the card I used Lawn Fawn's Slimline Stitched Hillside Borders to create the snow.

I added pine trees to my card using The Ton's Pine Trees Coverplate die, which die cuts the 5 pine trees all at once ... easy!

To finish off the front of the card I added the sentiment which is from The Ton's Easy Expressions - Holiday Stamp and coordinating die sets.

For the inside of my card, I created a simple pop-up card. I added the white panel, also die cut using the Trinity Stamps Slimline die set. I stamps a sentiment from The Ton's stamp set used on the front of the card.

I created the pop-up panels using Karen Burniston's Mini Pops Pop-up die set, I then added the pine trees to the pop-up panels and one in the front of the white panel.

You did such an expert job on the stenciling of the plaid that it looks like a slimline die cut. I’m not into stencils, so I hope someone produces that plaid design as a die.
Love your card, as usual. Thanks for sharing.
