My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge #283

Over at My Favorite Things their sketch challenge had me wanting to recreate a card I saw on Pinterest a very long time ago.

If you would like to play along with the sketch challenge CLICK HERE.

 I started off by using a Crumb Cake card stock base and matching ink along with a My Favorite Things music back ground stamp.
 Here I am just trying to decided which oval die from My Favorite Things will work better.

I go back and forth for about five minutes before I decide.
 I end up using the smaller oval of the two I had shown above.

I am using Very Vanilla card stock with Always Artichoke ink by Stampin UP along with there Retired Wonderland stamp set.

The top one is my first test stamp to see how it works out and go from there with stamping more trees on each side.
 I then cut out six Vellum ovals using the same die and used a Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow stencil along with some embossing paste to make a nice background.

Set those aside to dry, they took less then 10 minutes.
 While I waited for the Vellum pieces to dry I cut out the trees.

I also stamped the sentiment on Crumb Cake card stock with the matching ink and made them in to banners.
 I decided to go with some metallic gold thread and wind some up to make a messy mess.

Used tape to apply it down and the foam on the back of the tree piece will also help keep them down and in place.
 I added a line of sticky strip to the center of the stamped trees and placed the stenciled Vellum piece on top.

The banned I added some foam to the back and placed it on top of where the sticky tape shows
