A Willow for Your Thoughts:
I started with white cardstock and embossed the tree using brown for the trunk and some of the branches and then copper for the rest of the tree (copper is my favorite embossing color). After heat setting I came back with my VersaMark pen and clear embossed the trunk of the tree. The background is wrinkle free distress and I added some copper thread stitching and Tim’s Idea-ology hardware to complete the card.
Are the trees budding where you live? We are still waiting here in NE Ohio.
