Birch + Nature’s Beauty

I received a beautiful card from a fellow demonstrator in a recent Christmas card swap, and I decided to have a go at creating it myself, particularly the stunning birch background which looks for all the world as if it is three-dimensional. I am so pleased with the result – it REALLY looks like woodgrain!

The birch background stamp is so minimal, but creates such a striking effect, especially when you use the Stamparatus to stamp it twice with different ink colours (I used Gray Granite and White). I stamped first in white, then cleaned the stamp, moved my cardstock up a fraction of an inch, and stamped again in gray.

The Nature’s Beauty stamp set makes a great companion for the Birch stamp. Featuring detailed imagery of woodland creatures, this stamp set is terrific not just for the holidays but for year-round projects such as birthdays, thank yous, and other occasions. You can colour the stamped images or leave them blank as I have done here. Best of all, Stampin’ Up! is donating $4 from every Nature’s Beauty sale to mental health organizations around the world. Here in Canada, the funds are going to the Center for Addiction and Mental Health.

Happy Stampin’!
