Stampin' Up! Winter Woods Anniversary Card

Good morning fellow stampers. I had so much fun creating my card today. It's for a very special couple who is celebrating their anniversary next week.

My inspiration came from Christina Miller.

I chose to use Merry Merlot Card Stock for my base which is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4". 

In addition to scissors, liquid glue and equipment that will emboss and cut dies, here is what you'll need:

Fire pit:

Gray Granite Card Stock: 2 3/4" x 2"
Layering Oval to cut out the place for "flames"
Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder
Sponges, Gray Granite and Merry Merlot inks

Chairs: (I love Adirondack chairs, don't you? I hope Inkspirational: Challenge 209 - Chair Photo will like mine!)

Crumb Cake Card Stock: 4 1/4" x 3"
Seasonal Layers Dies
Subtle 3D Embossing Folder
Mini Dimensionals


Painted Harvest Stamp Set
Inks: Crushed Curry, Terracotta Tile
Scrap Whisper White Card Stock

Background Art Panel:

Whisper White Card Stock 5 1/4" x 4"
Winter Woods Stamp Set for the trees
Product for Masking the sky and then the ground
Inks: Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, Merry Merlot, Old Olive, Early Espresso


Whisper White Card Stock Mat: 5 1/4" x 4"
Timeless Tropical Stamp Set for the palms
Pear Pizzazz Ink (stamp off twice)
Merry Merlot Ink for the sentiment (mine is from the retired Wonderful Romance Stamp Set)

If you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer them. Just leave me a comment with your email address OR send me an email.
