Here is my card for 2 of SCS challenges ( IC138 TLC179). The inspiration challenge was to find our favorite website and use it for our inspiration. I chose to use the website of our family business. http://www.cabincreekwood.com/
The second challenge was to use a blintz base--a type of origami fold. I found this folding technique to be a fun addition to my card--will have to use again.
I chose to have the blintz base be the center of a 5.5 x 5.5 card. Inside of my fold I added a white piece of cardstock on which I had stamped my row of trees from the Stampin Up! set LOVELY AS A TREE. I added a sponged sun with a finger dauber and then glued in place. I attached the outside corners with rhinestone brads. My background was created by stamping the large pine tree from this same set in Wild Wasabi directly onto the pre-embossed card and then adding blue scraps with sponged edges (sponges with Baja Breeze) as my mountains. The sentiment that I used was hand written--really wanted to use the word relax and couldn't find one in all my stamp!! Go figure!!
Any way this card reminds me so much of what we have to offer here at Cabin Creekwood. Here is a slide show that will give you a taste of what we have here in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Maybe this will inspire you to add us to your list of places you want to visit. Would love to host your vacation get-away and just maybe we could spend some time stamping together!!
Your card is wonderful. I love your technique and Lovely as a Tree must have been inspired by your neck of the woods. I'll definitely visit you often. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
