1. Stamp and emboss the cabin and tree motifs. Three trees, one larger tree and two smaller ones, were created for this card. Once the motifs are embossed, color with aquarell pencils. For the trees, a small amount of blue was colored on only one side of the tree. Use a small paint brush and water to soften the colors and create a pastel effect. The cabin was colored with two shades of brown, one lighter and one darker. If the colors are still too light when you have added water, let them dry and then you can color areas again and repaint them with water until you get the look you want. For example on the cabin, more dark brown was added to certain areas to add more depth to the wood look. Once all your motifs are dry, cut them out with a small white border.
2. Emboss blue card stock and a piece of the aquarell paper with the embossing folders. Cut these down to fit the card. Cut the aquarell paper in a way that it looks like a hilly landscape. Adhere the paper then to the card.
3. Stamp your sentiment on the aquarell paper and cut out in a rectangle shape. Adhere the sentiment then on blue paper and cut out with a very small border. Use 3-D foam tape to stick the sentiment to the card.
4. Position the stamped motifs where you would like to have them. For this card, two of the trees were glued directly onto the card. The house and third tree were adhered with 3-D foam tape to add depth to the card.
