A Quick Card

Welcome
As we all know, everyday life has a habit of interfering with our card making aspirations, and that has been happening for me recently. The result is that I was needing a masculine card to be posted today, and this is the result.


I picked up a piece of the grey flecked card I used the other day and sponged the edges with Cobblestone ink.



I saw some scraps in my off-cuts container and cut them into banner shapes and sponged the edges with Tea Dye and Cobblestone inks.


I cut the Whimsical Tree D-lite die from dark green card. 

I fidgeted the elements around on the card for a few minutes, and decided that the sentiment could be stamped on the plain coloured banner, so stamped and embossed that, then assembled the card. The final detail was to ground the tree with a quick swipe of Tea Dye and Bundled Sage distress inks.


One card finished in short order and one happy camper here!

Well done. I'm hopeless with last minute cards. I have seen that tree die used by several people. It is very versatile. Great card. I am sure the recipient will appreciate it. Kate xx

It looks great and I, too, love the tree. I'm such a newbie, though - what type of adhesive do you use with such a delicate diecut?
