An Oldie but Goodie

Hello Stamping Friends,

Today I'm sharing with you a card that we made at my last Yurinkin' Stamp Addicts team meeting. It was designed and shared by team member, Patti H. If you have ever thought about or wanted to get more information on what it is like to be associated with the greatest company around, join us for a team meeting to hear more about it. May's get together will be held on Tuesday, May 13, 2014. Contact me for more information if you are interested. There are some many great reasons to join the family. Discounts, ability to preorder before anyone else, make some extra money, all the latest and greatest stamping ideas at your finger tips and so much more.

So now onto the card (I know there's a name for this technique, but at the moment, it has completely slipped my mind, sorry!). We embossed the line of trees from Lovely as a Tree (this set is around since 2001, when I joined the Stampin' Up! family) on both white cardstock using black embossing power and on black cardstock with white embossing powder. After both pieces are embossed you cut it down the middle (this way you can easily line up the trees on your card and you will get to make two different cards) and place one half of the black and the opposite half of the white onto your card front.

The butterfly is just punched and sponged with some white ink to add definition. It is also attached with a dimensional. The silver baker's twine is knotted in a few places just to give it a different look. The birthday greeting from Teeny tiny Wishes was stamped first and then punched out. I'm telling you, that makes life so much easier. Trust me.

Here's a picture of the what the other card's trees would look like. See, just the opposite of the finished card. The real key to making this card with ease is to make sure you cut both the white and the black at the same spot so it lines up easily. For the line of trees, you just cut down the trunk of the third tree from the left.
