Maybe this card looks familiar to you. I made and shared a similar one a couple of months ago, using a similar design and colors, but there are differences, you can take a look at that card here.
I started out by inking the background using Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers and Pumice Stone distress inks, then used stamps from the Penny Black set Nature's Friends to add to the scene. The trees (cut with the Penny Black die set Beneath the Birches) were adhered to the inked card before adding the embossed frame.
To make the frame I first dry embossed a white card stock using an old Cuttlebug embossing folder (I can't find this exact one, but there are alternative options) then I used a die from the Wonky Stitches die set, but used the "negative" instead of the stitched piece as a frame. This was then adhered onto a white heavy weight card base.
Penny Black Nature's Friends // Penny Black Beneath the Birches Die Set // Avery Elle Wonky Stitches Die Set // Cuttlebug Embossing Folder (Old - Alternative Options) // Sentiment from Penny Black (can't remember which set it came from) // Distress Ink Tumbled Glass // Distress Ink Peacock Feathers // Distress Oxide Ink Pumice Stone // Distress Oxide Gathered Twigs // Bristol Vellum Paper // Ink Blending Tool
