The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

There are lots of steps involved in making today’s card, and it is a little time intensive. However, none of the steps are difficult, and the resulting card is well worth the effort, don’t you agree?

The old warhorse, Lovely as a Tree was used to create the backdrop.  The Bare Trees image was inked in Soft Suede, stamped off, and the stamped onto Shimmer White cardstock.

An oval was die cut from a Shimmer White panel. This panel was then embossed using the Tufted Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Of course, this set the stage for adding Gold Metallic Pearls at each tuft.

The sparkle on today’s card is courtesy of Sparkle Glimmer Paper trees, which were die cut using the tree dies from the In the Woods Framelits collection.  The pine tree is on the left of the oval…
