Making Spirits Bright with Woodland Texture

I absolutely love the {Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder} from the 2015 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue, don't you?! It's one of my all time favourite embossing folders - and I have a lot, I mean A LOT of folders!!! I like the rustic look of this folder, and there are so many fun things that have been made with it, no wonder it sold out so quickly. I grabbed a couple spares for myself, I love it so much. I guess enough people were sad that it was GONE that Stampin' Up! decided to bring it out of retirement for the 2016 Annual Catalogue in June!!! YAY!!!!!! Super excited :) 

Anyways....... I made this fun card with the {Among the Branches} stamp set, which when bundled includes the embossing folder. It was a no-brainer for me! I made a bunch of fall themed cards with this set, using the leaves and birds. This time, I really wanted to try a Christmas/Holiday themed one. 

I went super traditional with my colours, Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green with a splash of Gold Glimmer! 

To get the ornaments so they don't have such long hooks/strings I used a scrap strip of paper to prevent the ink from getting where I don't want it to go. It helps to make the strings shorter too. To get the ink, in the de-bossed side of the folder, just ink up your brayer - I used Crumb Cake (my ink pad needed some re-inking!), but it gives some subtle colour to the trees. It really pops with Early Espresso or Chocolate Chip inks. 

Add the ink to the side with the solid trees, like shown below - then add your paper and run through your embossing machine and that's it! Super easy. 

I made a second version with some non-traditional colours - using Lost Lagoon and Rich Razzleberry. I like both the traditional and non-traditional styles. 

The only difference is the sequins added to the second version. I hope you like these cards, cheers! 

Thanks for stopping by, happy stamping!
