Lovely as a tree with a triple time stamping technique…

Hi and welcome to my blog. It’s Louise’s last week to host over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, and this time she has a triple time stamping technique for us.

I took inspiration from a diorama card I made some time back, and inked up my card using my brayer, before stamping across all layers with the fir tree image from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set by Stampin’ Up…

I then stamped over the top with whisper white craft and illuminate inks using the gorgeous grunge stamp set, to give the illusion of snow. I inked the shaped base card to match.

The card was embellished with a hand-tied bow and glittered snowflake die.
