I went into the way back machine for this card and pulled out one of my oldest stamp sets – the Lovely as a tree set from Stampin’ Up. I know this set is still available, or at least it was the last time I looked, because I believe it’s quite popular. I bought this long before unmounted and acrylic stamps became all the rage – so yes, it’s still a wood mount set *gasp*!
I stamped the image and sentiment using versamark and the Simon Says Stamp ultra fine silver embossing powder. Then I just ink blended over the top in an array of Distress Oxide blue shades. I added a few perfect pearl dots for extra interest.
