love you forever...

Hello friends!!  Getting back into the swing of things and have another card to share.  This one I made for the MIM challenge to used inlaid die cuts as well as for the current Dynamic Duos challenge. 


When I started making my card I thought I would use PTI's Harvest Berries set, but then noticed that the die is made in such a way that it cuts to different images... I only wanted one of the images and so that idea wouldn't work.  Then I moved on to Holiday Button Bits and even got so far as to die cut my cardstock and stamp the image, but I just didn't like what I was seeing at all.  So on to Trendy Tree Tops and finally I had a winning combination!  I die cut the tree top first, stamped it with my chosen image and then put it back into place.  I arranged the tree trunk die on top of the tree top, taped it down (along with the little cloud) and ran the piece through my die cutter.  The tree trunk and cloud die cuts were then stamped.  I trimmed the white cardstock piece to the size I wanted and then adhered it to red cardstock.  The tree and cloud die cuts were then adhered in place, a second die cut cloud adhered and the sentiment stamped.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white and pure poppy; Stamps:  PTI Trendy Tree Tops and Bitty Background Blocks; Ink:  SU! Real Red & Hero Arts Splash, Memento Tuxedo Black; Dies:  Trendy Tree Tops & clouds

Hello Rosie
I am secretly relieved to read that you sometimes have issues with design, as I always feel you do not have hiccups like normal people when it comes to making your cards, I always think of you as superlative Rosie. The card is gorgeous.
