This card turned out to be an exercise in enforced restraint. I was aiming for simple and almost home-spun so fought a constant battle with myself to NOT do things. So, I've considered and discarded several techniques, embellishments and bits: gold emboss the sentiment, sponge a Dijon background for the trees, layering the panel, colouring the hills, adding a curlicue to the sentiment.... Each and every one I talked myself out of doing - and I'm pleased I did. I like the cleanness of the result which lets the homespun warmth of the paper carry the weight and warmth of the greeting.
I could have hand cut the trees but to make sure they all had the same angle I punched a normal sized tree, then punched the cut tree to make a smaller version. Then I trimmed the trunks to match the hill lines.
Update: Delighted to be a winner to Create with Connie and Mary this week.
