a Trendy Tree Tops Happy Birthday!

I was eager to create something with my new Trendy Tree Tops set. I knew I wanted to include 3 trees across the card front, but they are a little too big to make that work on a standard A2 size card, so this one is 5"x7".

I die-cut the tops from white and trunks from kraft. The tops are stamped in Spring Moss, Berry Sorbet, and Aqua Mist, and the background panels in the same colors are stamped with Polka Dot Basics in Versamark Ink.


The tree tops and trunks are popped up on dimensional adhesive, and the heart on the first tree is popped on a slightly thicker adhesive so that it stands out more. I added the sentiment and lines from Faux Ribbon.


I'm not sure I'm in love with this card... it's one of those that looked better in my head than the finished product, lol. But that's ok, it just means I need to have another go round with this set soon! :)

Thanks for looking!

Wauw! I looove your card! The colors are so pretty! But I'm curious... how do you always get your new stamps soooo fast?! I'm a bit jealous... I'm happy when they arrive with me before the new release is there... Beautiful card!
Hugs, Wendy

How fab! I passed on this set and guess who's sorry now?! Your colors are so pretty as combined. Next time, I think I am going to stake out your blog and see what you order and create each release, before I order. Too cool!

I can't imagine how good it must have looked in your head, because it looks pretty darn good in these photos! I don't have this set yet, but I might try to case it with the other PTI tree set (the name of which escapes me right now). Thanks so much for sharing!
