Skull and Cross Buns - Sentiment Tree

Hi, back again!

Here's another card I made using the Skull and Cross Buns Christmas Joy, Peace, Noel Neon set of 3 rubber stamps.

The first thing I noticed with these is that these words contain three, four and five letters, so I decided to stack them to stamp a Christmas tree.

I stamped these together with a gradient of three shades of green ink.  I then stamped the trunk of the tree and embossed the star in gold, these stamps from another set.  The image was die cut with a stitched circle and I adhered to the card base on fun foam after I'd scored three vertical lines to add some background interest.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Skull and Cross Buns - Christmas Joy, Peace, Noel Neon Signs; Clearly Besotted - Christmas Sparkle
  • Ink: Altenew - Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, Evergreen; Versa Color - Pinecone; VersaMark
  • Embossing Powder: Wow! - Metallic Gold Rich
  • Die: MFT Die-namics - Double Stitched Circle Stax
