The Fourth Day of Christmas

Another Simple Card in soft greens. This was also a card that had to be mass-produced for the Haemophilia Foundation. The card base is Mellow Moss, and the darker green is Always Artichoke. All the stamps I've used are from the set "Peaceful Wishes". This is one set that has had quite a workout this year! A lot of the stamps are suitable for the rest of the year too (the pinecone and branches, so I won't even have to pout it away when Christmas is over.
For the focal image, I inked up the branch in Mellow Moss, stamped off once onto scrap paper, and then rock'n'rolled the edges of the stamp in Mellow Moss again. This gave me a paler centre part of the image, so the greeting stands out more. I've stamped on Confetti Cream cardstock, which has a lovely fleck in it.
When we made this card at my Stamp-a-Stacks, we also used heat-and-stick powder and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to add some sparkle to the centre branch. There's nothing like a bit of sparkle at Christmas!
