Pine Trees Christmas Card

I love the new winter linocut stamps designed by Barbara Gray.  Here I combined one of the sets with a stencil that I thought matched up well.

Lay the Perspective Pines stencil over a piece of Clarity stencil card and attach with masking tape to create a hinge. Add a moon mask.
Blend Midnight Blue Artistry ink through the apertures. Spritz lightly with water and dab with a paper towel.
Remove the moon mask and add a touch of Moon Crater Artistry ink across the moon. Remove the stencil.
Stamp the Winter Linocut outer stamp from the Health, Wealth, and Sweet Content set onto Clarity stencil card in Nocturne Versafine Clair ink.
Add the second image from the same set over the top in Faded Jeans Distress Oxide.
Trim the image using scissors.
Die cut the stencilled image using the 6” x 6” nested squares die. 

Die cut a mat from black card using the corresponding nested squares picot die.Add the sentiment from the Linocut stamp set in Nocturne Versafine Clair ink and mat up the topper.

Add the stamped topper to the stencilled topper.
To finish, add the large topper to the front of a 7” x 7” white card blank.
