We reference Close To My Heart colors but you can use any brand you have as long as you can make a very close match. Kind of close doesn't count.

I love tree images. It can be full, bare or evergreens. I just love having tree stamps in my stash. So I knew this stamp set was going to join my stash as soon as I saw it.
The background was create with Blending Brushes and ink. I love these brushes because they are easy to use and blend colors well.
When I added the trees and branches to the card front I used Thin Foam Tape to pop them up a bit. In order to "ground" them I used regular adhesive on the bottom of the trees and ends of the branches. This makes them look anchored rather than floating in air.
After stamping the sentiment I added some gold star confetti using liquid glue and a Pick-up Tool to place them.
