Rooted In Nature

This card is the first I have designed with the wonderful stamp set Rooted In Nature, and the coordinating Nature’s Root dies. These are carrying over to our wonderful new catalogue that launches on 3rd June.

I used Crumb Cake cardstock as a base, this card has become such a staple to me, it suits both rustic and elegant cards so I thought it perfect for a serene card using trees and nature.

I don’t use vellum nearly enough, so I had been meaning to use an embossing folder with it which had caught my eye from fellow demonstrators. This folder leaves a beautiful imprint of text and adhering it underneath the Very Vanilla stitched oval means there is no glue showing through the vellum.

To add interest I added a piece of braided linen trim which adds to the rustic look if you separate some of the strands it leaves a lovely frayed appearance.

The image of the lovely tree is one of many in the double stamp set, and the matching die cuts it out perfectly, using dimensionals lifts the image making it stand proud. The sprig of leaves is very elegant and using the Crumb Cake colour for the card and the ink gives a very uniform look.

To finish off the card I stamped two separate leaves onto vellum using the same ink Crumb Cake and used the matching dies. Adding one of the sentiments onto a slim piece of Very Vanilla card stock and cutting a banner shape into the end is the final touch.

Adding a little something inside a card makes it extra special I think, so another stitched oval and a sprig of leaves makes the card complete.

I am really pleased with the look of the final card, and really recommend having a play with this wonderful set. If you should wish to purchase any of the products I have used, click on the image below and it will take you directly to my Stampin’ Up store.
