Create a tree line...

Welcome crafty peeps...Vicki, from He"artful" Validation of Vicki sharing an easy way to create a tree line on your card or project using the Lavinia Christmas Tree Group Stamp.  Although this stamp is labeled as Christmas, the pine tree design can be used any time of year.

 
I created a tree line as the focal point for this CAS Sympathy card...
 
With Sympathy and Prayers
 
Slim line cards are all the rage right now.  I haven't made many, but this style worked well for the design that I wanted to create.
 
 
 
The finished card size is 3 1/2" x 8 1/2".  I cut the cardstock 7" wide by 8 1/2" long.  Next, I scored at 3 1/2" on the 7" side, folded and burnished for a sharp crease.
 
 

 
I used a stamp platform to create a uniform tree line, moving the stamp while keeping the cardstock stationary with magnets.
 
 
To finish the card, I inked the background sky, gave the trees more color and added some terrain under them.  I double matted with earth tones and used blue stonewash cardstock as the card base.
