For these cards I used the Large Cottage and Hedge stamps.
I thought it would be fun to do the same scene in two different seasons. A beautiful wintery scene for a Christmas card and a bright summer scene for a congratulations card (I was thinking it could be for a new house but it would be equally suitable for a lottery win!).
I chose the Remountable Winter Trees stamps for this project as you can use them with or without their mantles. Perfect for creating different seasons.
For the winter/Christmas version I kept the trees bare and created a snowy look with lots of glitter. For once I managed to resist the temptation to add snowmen and Father Christmas in his sleigh - I wanted to keep it quite simple and pretty much the same as the summer one.
For the summer one I added a bright yellow sun and vibrant green grass. I added the mantles to the trees in the same vibrant green. It's actually looking quite like that here in North Yorkshire today. Beautiful!
