I started making the card by creating a wood tree ring piece using the Wood Cookie Die Set. I die-cut all its pieces out of a dark warm-toned gray cardstock. Next, I inked the woodgrain and bark pieces with Lava Rock Dye Ink to make them darker than the base wood cookie piece.

After that, I assembled the element and adhered it onto a panel made out of the same cardstock. This element, in turn, was foam mounted onto a white card base.

Next, I made a rounded rectangular frame using a die from the Rounded Rectangles Die Set. The die was used to die-cut the inner edge of the frame. I used my corner cromper to make beautiful, rounded outer edges.

To tie the frame with other card elements I slightly blended the Morning Frost Dye Ink onto it.

Then I stamped several leaves using the Rainforest Leaves Wreath Builder Stamp Set and Morning Frost Dye Ink onto a Solar White Cardstock. I only used the top layers of each leaf, to make them “white”.

Additionally, I stamped a sentiment using a stamp from the same Rainforest Leaves Wreath Builder Stamp Set and Lava Rock Dye Ink.  All stamped elements were die-cut using the coordinating Rainforest Leaves Wreath Builder Die Set.

I adhered all the Rainforest Leaves elements onto the card, tucking them under the frame.

Lastly, I popped up the sentiment inside the frame.
