Warm Christmas Wishes Rustic Retreat

Hello and to my blog; today I am going to share with you a easy card that you can change out the sentiment on and change why you are sending the card.  I used the Rustic Retreat stamp set as the main focal point of my card along with a another stamp set and the birch background stamp.  This is a card that you can use all year long.  Here's a look at my card.

Step into nature with the Rustic Retreat Stamp Set.  This set offers an idyllic setting for creating beautiful moments with its uplifting sentiments and fun forest images, including a friendly bear. The Rustic Retreat Stamp Set was inspired by Million Sales Achiever Mary Polcin.  So it was the perfect stamp set for my card today.  I started out by stamping the card base with the Birch Wood background stamp.  I used Mossy Meadow Ink to match the cardstock.  I then stamped the row of trees from Winter Woods on a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock in Crumb Cake ink.  Then I stamped the cabin and the treeline image from Rustic Retreat in Early Espresso ink on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.  For the treeline image I stamped off first before stamping it onto the very vanilla cardstock.  I then stamped the sentiment to make it a Christmas card in Mossy Meadow.
I added a piece of very vanilla on the inside with the pine bough image from Rustic Retreat in Mossy Meadow ink, before adding it to the inside.  For the card front once everything was stamped I started building up the card.  I added the Crumb cake piece to the center of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I then added the Very Vanilla piece in the center with Stampin' Dimensionals.
To finish off the presentation of the card I decorated the Very Vanilla envelope with the Birch Wood Background stamp on the flap in Mossy Meadow ink.  By, repeating some of the patterns and the colors it ties everything together.  If you want to change the sentiment you can make this card into any all occasion card to send to anyone.

Thanks for dropping by today, I hope that you give this cute little rustic card a try if it's for a Christmas card or for a all occasion card.  I know you will love it.
