Today I am using a very cute Memory Box die called "Heart Canopy" (98283) with the Memory Box "Twiggy Tree" (98143). Don't you love all those little hearts! This "Twiggy Tree" is such a cute die, and is very versatile, because there are different "canopies" you can get to go with it. I used a piece of light pink design paper that has a lattice print in it to die cut the "Heart Canopy". To color the hearts behind it, I found a piece of floral vellum in my stash that had some glitter in it and thought it would create a cute multi-color background. I really like how it turned out. You could try lots of different design papers to see what effect you like the best. Another cute thing you could do is add a piece of tape on the backside and sprinkle glitter into each heart. The "Twiggy Tree" was die cut using a light green "sparkly" card stock. The fence is the Memory Box "Wrought Iron Fence" (98164). I had to die cut two to fit across the bottom of the card. The punched border was created using the Martha Stewart "Double Arches" punches. Remember the flowers I made the other day using the Cheery Lynn "Sweet Williams" (D 137) dies? This is one of those flowers I created in that tutorial. It is always nice to make more than you need for use at a later time! The sentiment is from the JustRite "Fancy Tags" stamp set.
I hope you are having a great weekend. I have been busy rearranging my craftroom - what a big project! My son and his family are arriving in a few days, so hopefully I have everything back in place soon. It looks like a hurricane hit it right now!!!
