Trendy Trees - Stampin Up

A card made with the Trendy trees Stamp set by Stampin Up.
I was actually sitting in my craft room testing out a new light fitting whilst making this card.

Did you know that you can get a Daylight Strip Fitting light? I didn't until around a week ago.
It looks like a slimline fluorescent tube and it isn't at all expensive, A 4 foot slimline tube for around £6 I took this picture of the card under the same light, very impressed with it.

Attention to Detail...

I punched the border from the same Kraft card that I used for the base then used the reverse side of the paper and cut a strip and glued this across the top of the border, I then tied a green ribbon around it before stamping the sentiment then stuck this near the bottom of the card.

I left a bit of interest by leaving one of the trees bare, the leaves and the trunks of the trees are separate in this set.

I used a Koi water brush to drag some of the colour from the base of the trunks to add shadow then topped with a bit of glitter to add a bit of bling.

Fantastic tree card Jak, just love the bare tree in the middle of the others, what a great idea to do it that way. Love that punch too.
