I stamped the oak tree in Early Espresso and also used the direct to paper technique with Early Espresso on the edges to give it a weathered look. Layered it onto basic black and popped it up on pop ups to give it some dimensions.I layered the Mocha Morning DSP onto black cardstock and then onto the Soft Suede. I have to admit that I will be sorry to see this DSP go – but it gives me a chance to stock up on it before it retires!
I stamped the Happy Birthday in gold and layered it with Soft Suede. Added my brads to either side and mounted it onto the card.
Here is the recipe:
Stamps: Loveley as a Tree, Happiest Birthday Ever (hostess)
Paper: Basic black, Mocha Morning DSP, Whisper White, Soft Suede
Ink: Early Espresso, Gold
Accessories: Vintage Brads
I hope you’ve enjoyed this as much as I enjoyed creating it. I will post the rest of the swaps as soon as I receive them.
Thanks for stopping by,
