A Jump Start on Christmas Cards

Hi Chris here and today I am sharing this fun Christmas Card.
Supplies Needed:
Sin City Stamps - Natural Beauty
Photo Paper
Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Stormy Sky, Weathered Wood, Forest Moss, Peeled Paint
Tag: Recollections
Card Stock

To create my back ground I started by stamping my Stormy Sky and Weathered Wood ink pads onto my Craft sheet and spritzing it with water.

I then laid my photo paper glossy side down into the ink.  Here is the result

I used my heat gun to dry the ink. I then inked my branch stamp with Forest Moss and Peeled Paint. I stamped multiple times to create my "tree". I stamped the image two or three times before reinking to created branches in the background. I then heat set my stamping.
I matted my stamped page onto card stock and added a ribbon.
I then tied on my tag with my hand written greeting and matted the whole thing onto my card. HOpe you enjoyed this project!
