Poster Tidings: September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

It is already time for the September Close To My Heart stamp of the month blog hop!  If you're already hopping, then you probably arrived from Priscilla's blog.  You'll go to Lisa Sargent's blog next.  This month's stamp of the month, Poster Tidings, features two large "subway art" style of stamps: one for fall and one for winter.
For my card, I challenged myself to use the Huntington (fall) paper pack with the winter stamp.  To make it, I used a pattern from the Make It From Your Heart, Vol. 2 how-to guide that I modified to fit the large, central tag.  The tag was cut from Colonial White card stock with the Art Philosophy cartridge.  It cuts the tag and the tree for you!  After stamping with Barn Red on the tag, I stamped the tag on Olive card stock with Olive ink and then attached that piece behind the tag.  It was pretty to easy to line up the stamped images.

The gorgeous background paper is from Huntington, plus I used a Champagne card stock base.  Bronze shimmer trim and an adhesive gem from the Rosewood collection makes this an easy holiday card to mail.

Thanks for hopping by!  Now see go Lisa's pretty creation!

A eye-catching card! Is the tree done on Velum which allows the text to show through? Or did you stamp in the tree and then match the words?
