Thinking of you

Good morning,  Alicia blogging today.  I have used the latest Karen Burniston Tree Pop Up dies and Karen Burniston Greetings dies to create a summer theme thinking of you card.  I was so excited when I saw this added to the Dies R Us store, I purchased it immediately.  I have a fondness for trees.




It was so much fun creating the various layers for this 3-D card.



The clouds are Avery Elle but no longer found in the store.  I think the Frantic Stamper Stitched Cloud Edgers and Soaring Paper Airplane are pretty close substitutes.


Here are a couple of tips for using this die set. First I just cut bunches of leaves. The die cuts 6 at a time.  After cutting I inked the edges, as part of this process the leaves get a little shaping.



Another tip is to cut the tire swing twice and adhere the pieces together.  This gives a more 3 dimensional effect and the double layer of paper increases the strength at the loop for tying your "rope".
