I love everything about this card!  I love the watercolor-look tree image, the layered ovals, the sponged edges, the stamped background, and the simple embellishments! I stamped this card one day when I was crafting at Cindee’s house. We took some inspiration from Pinterest, but ended up making it pretty much our own 🙂  Isn’t that was crafters do? 🙂

I used the Stampin’ Up! Rooted in Nature stamp set and framelit dies (get them in a bundle at a discount!), and the Handwritten background stamp!

I posted a  video a few days ago showing how to stamp this watercolor-look tree. I’m including it in my post below. 

Design Notes:

  • Die cut a watercolor paper oval with the Stitched Shape framelits for the tree image
  • Sponge the edges of the oval and the background image with Soft Suede ink for a beautiful soft touch
  • Stamp the Handwritten background stamp in Soft Suede ink on a piece of Nature’s Poem Designer Paper
  • Stamp and die cut leaves with the Rooted in Nature bundle
  • Add a Linen Thread bow to the card for one last “natural” looking embellishment
  • Watch the video below for details on coloring and spritzing the tree image for the watercolor look
