Thought I'd try my hand for this challenge at CASE STUDY, check out the inspirations the team has designed.
I began my card with Stampin' Up's card stock called Pool Party, such an inviting and calming color I think.
Then cut two pieces of Very Vanilla paper, die cut one of them with my tree die and stamped the tree and leaves on the second sheet, lining them up so they peek through the openings.
Added some of the new yummy pleated ribbon a sentiment and a little flower blossom to keep the nature theme rolling along with embossing the top mat with a wood grain embossing folder to complete the look.
Here's my card:
Here's a closer look at the wood grain embossing, pretty cool don't ya think?
