Thoughtful Banners

falltreeDo you ever have an idea for a card in your mind and you just HAVE to make it?

I just love the Halloween Scenes edgelits and am sad that Halloween is over.  I wanted to find another way to use the fun tree in there and decided to pair the tree with a bunch of different sized circles and see what happened.  Personally I don’t like when the ‘leaves’ are just behind the tree so I did some different layering to get the look I wanted.

Here’s the details…

  • Cajun Craze – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Cajun/Mint print – 5/8 x 5 1/2, cut two add one to the left side of the card
  • Whisper White – 2 3/4 x 5 1/2, run the top 3/4 through the Seaside Embossing Folder, add the second piece of the Cajun/Mint print behind the left side and add to card front
  • Basic Black – 2 3/4 x 3 1/4, cut out tree
  • Cajun/Mint print – 1 3/4 circle, Mint Macaron – 1 1/2 and 1 circles, Cajun Craze – two 1 1/4 circles, layer these together BEHIND the tree then add tree to card front using dimensionals
  • Garden Green – two 3/4″ circles, Cajun Craze – three 1/2″ circles, and Gold Foil – four 1/2″ circles, add these to the FRONT of the tree
  • Mint Macaron – stamp banner and greeting using Momento Black, Punch with the Duet Banner punch, add using dimensionals
