Rooted in Nature ~ You are Wonderful

Hey guys and welcome to (back) to my blog.
Today I have a fun card to share with you using a bundle that we got a little while ago, Rooted in Nature. I pulled it back out from my stamp shelf for a bit of a play!

I was actually really firstly inspired by the Pinewood Planks 3D embossing folder when I was showing my good friend and team member Jodie how to add ink to an embossing folder.
So although it's subtle, I have actually added Whisper White Ink to my Pinewood Embossing Folder before running it through the die cutting machine with some Crumb Cake Cardstock.
It gives it a really subtle but nice effect!

Be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post to see links to all the products I have used in today's post, all of which are available in my store here.

Here's a look at the finished card.
I have gone with a really neutral based colour combo and kept it mainly to Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Gold and a pop of green with some Old Olive/Pear Pizazz/Soft Sea Foam.

I chose to use the Pinewood Planks piece in the background and just add a piece of the Early Espresso to break it up, and then add some layers of Linen Thread to section them off. I sure do love my Linen Thread!

I then added a cluster of stamped and die cut embellishments from the Rooted in Nature Bundle. 
I have used the gorgeous dies which come with some beautiful dies that actually cut and emboss those gorgeous leaves. They are just the best!
I have also heat embossed and die cut some leaves in gold.

The tree is stamped in Pear Pizazz, however for a textured look, I have used a sponge dauber to add some Old Olive ink on to the edges! You'd be surprised at how much of a difference it makes.

Here's a close up look at the finished card.
I have added some spritzing with an Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker which you can purchase in the Neutrals Stampin' Write Markers Collection,

I have then heat embossed the 'You Are Wonderful' sentiment in gold and fussy cut this out. 
Gold embossing I find SO HARD to photograph, so I do apologise!

I have then embellished with some of the gorgeous new Gilded Gems. I love those things and may have hoarded several packets!

Here's a look at the decorated inside of my card where I have added layers of Crumb Cake, Whisper White and Early Espresso.
I then stamped one of the foliage images in Soft Sea Foam and added another sentiment which I have stamped and heat embossed in gold on Crumb Cake Cardstock.
Simple but a nice finish to the inside of the card.

P.S. Don't forget I have a really cool special this weekend to celebrate my fourth Stampin’ Up! anniversary!
