It seemed that for Earth Day, lots of designers were using trees in their creations and so I thought I would share this little set of cards I created.
One of these was recently published in the April CARDS magazine but since I had created a set of three based on the same design elements, I thought I would share the other two.
I used a set of papers by Quick Quotes. I just love these prints and I loved how they worked together on the chipboard trees. The chipboard trees are by Maya Road. When you buy these, you get a whole tin of tops of trees and trunks of trees and it is fun to mix and match them. I always use something like Mod Podge for my glue when glueing paper to chipboard. I like that you get a good uniform coat without warping, etc. I didn't coat the top of the covered trees with the Mod Podge though because I wanted the natural look of the paper.
The common element in all of the cards is the white, Cuttlebug embossed background and the little heart brad. Various "thank you" rub-ons were used as the greetings.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
