All Seasons Tree

This is an older Simon die, but I just recently rediscovered it on Pinterest (mostly from Lisa's blog!) and I thought I'd have a play with a summer version for my first time using it.  I love this combination of green, kraft, and chocolate!


supplies: white, Green Apple, Dark Chocolate and kraft cardstock, All Seasons Tree and Stitched Rectangle dies

I left this one without a sentiment.......I'll add a banner one when I send it.

For my 2nd card, I did add a sentiment.  The Vintage Photo ink is a perfect match for kraft.


supplies: white, kraft, and Green Apple cardstock, All Seasons Tree die and a retired Hero Arts sentiment, VersaFine Vintage Sepia ink

Both cards use the inlaid die technique - although there are tiny leaf dies included (which I know I'll use for the autumn version when I make it), it is much easier to just put the inlaid panel over another color of cardstock to give the leaves detail......

I think this design will be very useful for masculine cards.
