Fragrant Forest tree background stamp holiday card, with Deckled Circle Dies & Stampin' Up! supplies by Patty Bennett

 

Have you thought about this? You can use a large cardfront sized background stamp but not use the whole image?? That’s what I did, I used one of the large Deckled Circle dies (about 4″ diameter) and die cut the large background image to use on my card!! This Stampin’ Up! Fragrant Forest background stamp is beautiful, it’s very detailed and stamps beautifully!!!

I inked the entire forest background with Old Olive ink then used a Blending Brush to dab on some Granny Apple Green ink before stamping.  That gives it a pretty two-toned effect.

Don’t miss the “snow” effect I created with Whisper White Craft ink refill and Wink of Stella (see below).

When you dip the Wink of Stella brush into the white craft ink puddle, swirl it around, and then flick it onto the stamped trees!!  It takes a bit to dry since it’s craft ink, but so pretty when it’s done!

Below: check out the tip I have for you with the Silver-Threaded twine!  I pulled apart the thick twine and used about 3 strands to tie the knot around my twine on the card.

Did you notice the pretty background on this card?  I used 2 patterns from the One Horse Open Sleigh paper pack!!

Happy Holidays is found in the “Throughout the Year” stamp set found on page 61 of the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog.  I am stumped about what set I got the die cut from.. it was in my die cut stash… apologies if it is retired and I didn’t realize it!.
