This week I began working with the “Perched In A Tree” bundle as I always enjoy working with nature sets. The “Aspen Tree” dies in this bundle are available as a FREE “SALE a-bration” item through the end of August. Basically, I kept this card pretty simple thanks to the “Rings of Love” DSP, another FREE “SAB” product. This piece of DSP was laying on my craft desk and I thought it would look great behind the die cut trees. This particular pattern is on the reverse side of the small bird print from the “Rings of Love” paper.
For some added interest to the trees, I used the splatter stamp to place dots on the tree trunks. First, I made an oval mask so I could stamp the “splatter dots” only on the trees. Sahara Sand was used and stamped off before adding the dots. This particular die also places “indented” images on the tree trunks. I colored these areas with a light “Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends”.
The greeting was stamped with Starry Sky ink on Soft Seafoam card stock. I then die cut the tag with one of the “Tailor Made Tags” dies. Then I added a piece of Starry Sky “Metallic Woven Ribbon” to the tag and frayed the ends. This ribbon has a nice shimmer and adds some interesting texture. To complete this card, I used a small clear “Elegant Faceted Gem” colored with the dark “Starry Sky Stampin’ Blends”. I think the DSP is truly the star of this card!
Remember, just over two weeks remain to take advantage of the “SALE a-bration” promotion!
