Vertical Greetings | #WWYS116

Welcome to this weeks challenge at What Will You Stamp? This week the set we are playing with Vertical Greetings.

This set is interesting as the name suggests, the sentiments run vertically rather than the normal horizontal direction, once you get your head around that, this set makes for some stunning cards! 

It's almost winter here in Australia, so many of the trees are showing lovely autumn/fall colours in my district, that was the inspiration for my cards today. I created two projects today, a simple stamped card then a "stepped up" card with embossing and layering.

I my first card has a shorted card front with the sentiment stamped on the inside of the card - I stamped first then worked out how much to trim off the front of the card - it gives a unique look compared to a normal card, but is still only a 1 layer card. I used a sponge dauber with Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo and Sweet Sugarplum to create the multi coloured leaves on my topiary tree, and rounded the corners of the card to give added character.

My second card has layers, oh how I love layers! I used the same colour combination from the first card the heart topiary, and created a terracotta pot by blending colours. The embossed background uses the Falling Petals Embossing folder, I just love those little hearts, pity it is retiring (but it is still available if you are quick).
