Lovely as a Tree Birthday Card


A quick post today because I should be studying...

I made this card a few days ago. I wanted to try out a new technique - using a mirror image. Here's the card I made:

I stamped the trees onto the Very Vanilla card stock and then stamped them again onto the acrylic sheet that came with my stamp positioner. I then flipped it over, lined it up and pressed it onto the card stock. Easy peasy! I layered this panel under the Soft Suede panel, which I raised with dimensionals.

I'm not sure if the card is finished enough though. I keep thinking it needs something else, but I just can't quite put my finger on it. Any ideas?

Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Vintage Labels (retired 2010 SAB)
Ink: Soft Suede
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Soft Suede
Other: Stamp Positioner, Word Window Punch, Sponge Dauber

OK, back to the study for me!

Catch you later,



  1. Beautiful Tina, great technique.

    Oh and thank you so much for showing my card on your blog, such a sweet thing to do.



  2. Hi Tina .... love your card and I think it is just fine as it is ... the mirror effect is still a technique that I have yet to try.
    Also, just to let you know that I have left you a Beautiful Blog award, please see my blog for details.


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate it.
