The Sweet November review of the February release is going on over at the All That Scraps blog today and today's card is my contribution.
I actually made this card at the same time I created the release previews. I had colored up Pine twice because I just couldn't make up my mind which way I wanted to go. So I decided to just do both. If you remember from the previews, I featured Pine in a wintery theme. But I was also drawn to a more organic/woodsy theme and this is the resulting card. I used a 12x12 sheet from the October Afternoon Campfire collection as the background, just adding a strip of woodgrain paper from My Mind's Eye. I cut two leaves from more MME paper using the C.C. Designs Leaves Cutter so Pine would have a softer place to sit. The sentiment is from the fabulous C.C. Designs Be Happy Sentiment set by AmyR. Although I used some already distressed Basic Grey paper for the sentiment, I wanted a bit more so I used my Memento Rich Cocoa pad edges to create a few more lines. The banner at the top is a pre-made item from Little Yellow Bicycle which was sized for a 12x12 scrapbook layout but I just cut it and made a few adjustments for size of the card. I still have more pieces to use on future projects.
