Lovely as A Tree

Well, England are out of the cup so hopefully, we can start to get back to normal (you tell I am not a fooball fan!?).

I made this card for the craft fair at Hemsworth on Saturday and forgot to post it on my blog, but anyway - here it it.  Sorry about the quality of the photo - I am no David Bailey!!!



Its basically the same technique as the deer card I made a earlier in June here, but I used a tree from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set.

I couldnt decide on the sentiment so made it as a card for any occasion by just stamping letters from the Just Perfect Alphabet set, stamping each one out with a 1/2" circle punch.  Then I gently inked around each one with Bashful Blue ink, covered them in Chrystal Effects and when dry, mounted them on 3/4" Old Olive circles.
