This is the second card I've made with the new Ornamental Pine stamp set. It reminds me of a moonlit Christmas Eve night, when everything is cold and still outside.
To make this card, I started with a 3 3/4 x 5 inch piece of Whisper White cardstock. I masked off the horizon with a torn Post-it note and a 1 3/4 inch circle for the moon. Then I sponged in the sky from the bottom up, using Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo, Wisteria Wonder, and Concord Crush. I removed the moon mask and stamped the row of trees from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set (most versatile set I own!) in Smoky Slate ink. Then I removed the horizon mask and repositioned it a bit lower down and at an angle for the foreground hill. I sponged a little Soft Sky at the edge of the post it to create the snowy shadow of the hill. Finally, I inked up the branch from Ornamental Pine with Mossy Meadow Ink, colored the stem with an Early Espresso marker, and stamped it in the left corner. I added pine cones with Early Espresso ink. I also went over some of the pine needles with the fine tip of the Mossy Meadow marker because where the needles overlap it needs a little definition. Finally, I colored in the white spaces on the pine cones with a white gel pen and added some gel pen stars and the sentiment. The sentiment comes in the Ornamental Pine set, and I stamped it in Concord Crush ink. This whole panel was matted on a piece of Early Espresso cardstock that measured 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 inches, and that was mounted onto a Mossy Meadow card base.
