Four Seasons

I've had this card in my head for days. Last night I had to get it out. I used Out on a Limb by PaperTrey Ink. I love this set. I bent the branch just a bit when I put it on the block. Gotta love acrylic! I stamped the branch 4 times and punched it out witha Marvy Mega Scalloped Square punch. I stamped flowers and leaves for spring, summer and fall. I added a drop of Liquid Pearls to the center of the flowers for spring. I used a puff paint for winter and added a bit of Martha Stewart glitter before heating it. IRL it really looks like snow.

The card base is Bazzill white. I love the orange peel texture. It adds just a bit of texture to a card but doesn't overload it. The second layer is My Minds Eye and the branches were stamped on PTI Select. The ribbon is American Crafts. That Valentines ribbon is sooooo yummy.

I plan on putting a sentiment on the inside. Probably Every day is a gift from the same set. I'm not sure Im done changing this card yet though.

Stamps: PaperTrey Ink - Out on a Limb
Paper: Bazzill. My Minds Eye, PTI Select
Ink: ColorBox
Extras: American Crafts ribbon, puff paint, Martha Glitter, Liquid Pearls
