Winter Comfort

Meet "Winter Comfort".

You know already how much I love working with embossing folders, and changing them up to suit me! This is another one of those folders by Altenew.
First up is to run the folder through my Gemini Jr., which I did after spritzing the Neenah cardstock front and back lightly. I acutally ran this folder through three times, feeling it needed that many passes to get a good impression. That is up to you of course, it is not a necessity.

I then ran a second piece through and fussy cut the centre tree from this piece to in my finished project. In the mean time I also used it to mask the tree when I was doing the sponging. 
To the trees I sponged on my colours using a finger sponge dauber. I started with Eucalyptus, then Sage, and Juniper. I then sponged on Delicata Golden Glitz to the centre tree.

Next up was to fussy cut the trees along the top. I also added Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass to the sky portion.
In this photo you can see the gold tree underneath. It shows better in real life. For the piece that I fussy cut I sponged on the Fir ink, using a heavy layer, even though it does not look like it here. The reason for that is that I then painted over the tree with a heavy coating of Midas Touch Shimmerng Pen, so pretty.

To put it together I first attached the trees background to my card base. In my Mini Misti I then stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Clair ink in Blue Belle.
I added the centre tree using foam squares and to finish I splatter a lot of Guoache and some acrylic white as well.

For the inside I added another of the embossed piece and sponged on the Eucalyptus to the centre tree. I then stamped and die cut the "winter" piece attaching it to the inside using glue. I also stamped in place the words "warm and wishes" above and below the "Winter" sentiment, again using the VersaFine Clair ink in Blue Belle.
