I started this card with a base card of cherry and my favorite corner rounder, the Corner Chomper tool. I then cut a panel of sugar card stock and proceeded to dry emboss a grid pattern on the panel using my score board. I lined up the groove every ¼” and scored the card stock all the way across, then I turned it 90 degrees and scored lines every ¼” again. I love the subtle texture and the interest it adds to the card design.

I then layered on a panel of petite polka dot card stock in mermaid. I cut a ½” strip of sugar card stock and stamped my sentiment in cherry ink, cutting a fish tail on one end. To make the tree, I cut a triangle of sage card stock and used the Rolling Seas Background stamp with grass ink to create the scalloped boughs on my triangle tree. I popped up my tree with 3D foam adhesive and added a cherry button and some cherry baker’s cording to embellish.

This was fun to make because I love to use stamp sets in a way that you wouldn’t normally expect, I love any way to stretch my stash!
