This card is very economical as the base is one layer only. The added boxes are a good way to use up leftover pieces of cardstock and designer series paper.
- To keep the base from looking to plain, I paper-pierced the empty corners. Soft suede is the color.
- The cute trees are from Stampin' Up!s new designer series paper Tall Tales and they are mounted on Dusty Durango one of the new In Colors.
- Kind and Caring Thoughts** is the "must-have" new stamp set. The sentiment is stamped in dusty durango. To keep it clean, I placed a scrap piece of cardstock over the words after stamping and then stamped the ginkgo branch over the top in mellow moss. For the finishing touches I stamped another leaf in each lower corner, and striped the square with barely banana at about 1/8" intervals (hard to see in photo). This square is mounted on so saffron.
**You can earn Kind and Caring Thoughts absolutely free! This wonderful set is available only as a hostess set starting July 1. Email me if you would like to host a workshop and get this set.
