M is for Mountains

Today the letter M is for the Mountains.  Mountains are majestic.  They are beautiful.  They are my favorite place to be.

The mountains are the place I love to be.  I love them colored in snow.  I love them on a summer day. I have many fond memories of things I have done in the mountains.  I went to camp as an elementary school student for summer camp and later became a counselor for those same camps.  I have snowboard on a few of the mountains.  I have visit them with my family.  I have cropped with my scrapbook sisters in the mountains.
Mountains are the most beautiful of God's creation.  They also are a great reminder of the type of faith I should have.
Today, my card is all about mountains and the outdoor experiences I have had on them.

The card base is Pool Play cardstock with another slightly smaller piece of Pool Play Cardstock attached with foam squares.
I used Whip Cream Ink to create a swirl pattern on the top of the Pool Play piece, to represent clouds (really hard to see in the picture).
I then took the mountain stamp that says Nature Lover from the Scenic View stamp set (30% off this month) and stamped it in a row on Whip Cream Cardstock in four different ink rows; Dark Roast, Cocoa Powder, Hazelnut Blend and Oatmeal Cookie.  I then detail cut these rows out, cutting off the Nature Lover sentiment.
I took a piece of Limeade Splash cardstock and did direct to paper with Limeade Splash ink to give the piece texture.  I then layered the mountains on the top of the Limeade Splash Cardstock.   I then die cut Kiwi Slice Cardstock with the Border Basics scallop die.  I added this to where the mountains stopped on the Limeade Splash Cardstock.  Next, I wrapped Lemon Grass Thread around the card several times and tied a Wooden Accent on and then tied a bow.
I finished the card, by adding the sentiment from the Scenic View set to the lower right corner using Black Licorice ink.  Enjoy!


  1. I have a view of the foothilss from my back yard. They are majestic and beautiful and relaxing to look at.

    I’m exploring different types of dreams and their meanings.

  2. That is so true about faith and mountains, isn't it? We should have the faith that we can move mountains indeed.
