Rooted in Nature Stamp Set & Tree Rings Background
Today’s card is using the new Rooted in Nature stamp set, coordinating framelits and the Tree Rings Background stamp.
The Rooted in Nature stamp set is inspired by nature and coordinates with one of our most loved stamp sets of all time, Lovely As A Tree.  You are going to love this stamp set as it works well for all occasions and many stamping techniques.






Before I stamped the Tree Rings background I used a clear block as a stamp to add a textured look to the cardstock.

Zoom up on the photo to see the difference; bottom-right image used clear block for added texture to the Tree Rings
