I used two stamps from Technique Junkies: Make a Tree, Set of 12 (SS014) and Textured Newsprint (S783).
This layered card turned out so sweet. I realize that it isn't a real partridge, nor is it a pear tree. But when you are being creative, you can overlook those things! lol
To create the card, I started with a cream CS A2 base. I added an olive green CS panel. Next I stamped the newsprint background using my MISTI and some Distress Ink in Antique Linen.
I trimmed down the panel, then began stamping the tree elements using the MISTI and Memento Inks. The tree base was stamped in Rich Cocoa. The leaves were stamped in Pistachio, and the bird in Peanut Brittle. The panel was then attached to the card base.
Using my Silhouette Cameo, I cut a few vinyl pears to add to the tree. I then used the Silhouette Markers in the Cameo to "write" the sentiment. Using a decorative die, I cut the sentiment out and attached it to the card using foam tape.
I have to say that I am loving this Make A Tree Set. There are 12 different stamps in the set: 5 Birds, 5 Sets of Leaves, and a Tree Base. The combinations are endless. You can use fall colors and several of the leaves to make an Autumn Tree, no leaves for a winter tree, bright green and several birds for Spring, or a pretend Pear Tree for Christmas like I did. That's what I call a value set of stamps!
