Rooted In Nature

Rooted In Nature is a stamp set that has been in the catalog for a couple of years.  It replaced Lovely As A Tree (LAAT).  LAAT was an awesome stamp set but Rooted In Nature is even better.  Why?  Because it has matching dies called Nature’s Roots and cute little leaf embellishments called Leaves Trinkets.  Everyone loves dies and trinkets!

To make this card, I first took a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock and rang it through my embossing and die cutting machine with the Pinewood Planks 3D embossing folder.  I layered that onto a piece of Basic Gray cardstock.  Next I stamped the trees in Shaded Spruce ink onto Whisper White cardstock three times without re-inking inbetween.  It gives the trees a little depth by making it look like the lighter trees are behind the darker one.  I also stamped the leaves in Shaded Spruce and cut them out with the matching die.

If you look closely you can see the sentiment is on a stitched banner.  We don’t have stitched banners but I will tell you how I did it.  I first stamped the sentiment onto a piece of So Saffron cardstock and cut it out using the Stitched Rectangles.  Then I did this with the same die and ran it through my die cutting machine again:

It worked perfectly!

  1. The embossing folder and stamp set go together so well, but your banner idea – GENIUS! I love it. Guess who’s going to have stitched banners on all her cards now? (Yeah – me.) Thanks for the idea!!
