For Day 1 of the reveals, we are showcasing the Cycling Friends Stamp Set + Coordinating Dies along with the Tree Line Stencil. I also used the A7 Frames & Banner Die Set with the Clouds Stencil and the Hills & Grass Stencil.

Next, I die-cut the card background using the new A7 Frames & Banner Die Set on some Strathmore Bristol smooth white card stock. I used some masking tape to cover the scallop and used the Tree Line Stencil to create the “rainbow” trees first with different dye inks. I used the other stencils to ink-blend the panel.
I finished my design by foam-mounting the images and added the sentiment that was heat-embossed using white embossing powder. Here’s another look:
