Spring Trees Thinking of You Card

It’s the first day of Spring!! I love when everything is in bloom – new and fresh! Here’s a simple card to welcome the warmer weather and longer days.

The tree and grass stamps are from an older Stampin’ Up set called Totally Trees. It’s no longer available but you can use any fun tree stamps you have in your stash. The sentiment is also from Stampin’ Up. It’s from a set called Teeny Tiny Wishes and you can find it here. I use this set all the time – it has 24 different sentiments that cover so many occasions. The embossing folder is Dotted Lattice from Taylored Expressions.

To make the card, stamp the grass several times with green ink on a panel of white card stock. Stamp the “leaves” of the trees 3 times, twice with green ink and once with yellow-green ink. Stamp the trunk and branch part of the trees with dark brown ink, centering the branches in the center of the “leaves”. Lightly sponge around the trees with blue ink. Layer this panel to green card stock.

Emboss a panel of yellow-green card stock with the Dotted Lattice embossing folder. Attach to a white card. Attach panel stamped with trees to the card. Stamp sentiment with green ink on white card stock and punch with a label punch. (The one I used is discontinued, but you can find a similar one here.) Layer to another label punched from green card stock. (this one is discontinued, too 😦 , but here is a link to a very simple set of dies that I think would work great with a card like this or maybe this set…) Attach the label to the card with foam tape and add a couple of gems.

You could also change the color scheme and this would make a great Fall card!

Happy Spring!

Thanks for stopping by,
