I used Lori Whitlock’s pretty Spring tree print and cut file along with my Silhouette Cameo. This time I decided to make a card. Do you remember when I used the Fall Tree to decorate my mantel? There are so many ways to use Lori’s designs! I think the Spring tree would be beautiful on a tote bag or t-shirt. Don’t you?
I used a stamp from the Mother & Daughter stamp set. I was talking to my daughter when I made this card. I was inspired to create the sayings in that set because of my love for her. 😉
The yellow floral and solid blue paper come from Lori’s Echo Park Happy Days paperline. I look forward to all of Lori’s releases with Echo Park. You ought to go check out the her new Echo Park This & That Charmingand Echo Park This & That Graceful. I’m planning to use them on a special project soon!
I decided to use a Glue Dots XLsized dot and make a twine sun. To create a twine sun, all you have to do is start in the middle rolling your twine and work your way toward the outer edges.
It’s fun and pretty easy too!
Using Martha Stewart Crafts Fringe ScissorsI was able to make the grass. Fringe scissors are addictive. It’s hard to stop fringing things once you start. LOL!
I printed one tree and bird as a single piece. Next, I printed and cut another tree and bird in their individual pieces. That allowed me to be able to layer the leaves and give the card a lot of dimension using small foam pop dots. I added an extra bird too.
I hope you enjoyed my card! Come on Spring!
(ACHOO! Go away pollen. LOL!)
