Hi everyone, it’s AJ here with a project that was so enjoyable to create! I was so excited to use Kat’s original design, the Stitched and Layered Christmas Tree Die! I cut it out in a lighter green cardstock, then distressed the bottoms of the layers in Forest Moss Distress Ink. I then cut the blue base using the largest of her Stitched Rectangle Dies. The big harvest moon was cut using the third largest in the Stitched Circle Dies.
I cut the hill and houses out using the Lawn Fawn Little Town Border Die and then ran that die cut using the bottom half of the Stitched Rectangle Die again, so it would match up with the blue sky base. I distressed the sky in Mermaid Lagoon and Chipped Sapphire and the moon in Fossilized Amber and Carved Pumpkin Distress Inks. I wanted to go with a simple sentiment and I remembered I had ordered this set by Mudra called Purely Labeled Sentiments. I stamped it in VersaFineOnyxBlack Ink and used my Stampoholic Nano to give it a double stamping and a nice rich impression.
I added a bit of twine at the bottom. and lastly I really wanted to decorate my tree to give it a little sparkle on this crisp, starless fall night. I remembered I had these gorgeous sequins in the Kat Scrappiness Mello Yello Mix. When I sprinkled them on my tree, I felt they were perfect. They sort of blend in and allow the tree to stay my main focus, but I get that perfect amount of sparkle in little clusters.
Well, that’s it for today, thank you for stopping by! Make sure you check out the fun goodies I used to make this card, in the Kat Scrappiness store! Click Here to Shop!
