supplies: white, Cotton Candy, pale green, and woodgrain cardstock, MFT Heart Tree die, (retired) Simon Just a Love Note sentiment and banner die, (retired) Winnie & Walter Audrey Cutaway dies
I love this Heart Tree die, used it lots last year when I got it, but I've never used the negative image it cuts as a kind of stencil to place the leaves and hearts. I don't know what this technique is called, but since the elements sit on top of the card, it reminds me of applique in quilting.
I cut it from kraft, pink, and green, then used the various parts to piece the elements onto the woodgrain backing, using the negative image for placement. I thought this little sentiment from a 2012 Simon Valentine set was perfect.
