It's Erica on the Picket Fence Blog today, with a couple of CAS cards made with the A Tree diecut.
Both of these are done in a quite simple manner: I cut the A Tree out of two different panels.
One had a pattern done by pressing a piece of paper on top of the Slim Line Broken Fence stencil, after I had used Paper Glaze in Fern Green, Leaf Green, Jade Vine and Cornflower Blue. It created a fun and colourful pattern and the texture is amazing!
This tree I adhered to a white card base, because I wanted to keep the focus on the Paper Glaze texture and colours.
To finish it off I stamped a sentiment from Favorite Notification, in Black Hybrid Ink on white card stock.
This I trimmed down and then glued to the card. I nearly added some sequins from Gin & Tonic, but decided to keep it super simple.
The second card was done in a very similar manner, but the piece of card stock I used for the A Tree was sprayed with Nuvo Sparkle Spray in Morning Fog.
It's dark and shimmery and just fantastic. I glued it to another card base to again, keep it very clean.
I think this design would work really well for a sympathy card, and I would have loved to have one in the same font as the other Fancy stamp sets. Like Fancy Sentiments, More Fancy Sentiments and Fancy Christmas Sentiments.
Because there isn't one, I decided to use another sentiment from Favorite Notification. This time I stamped it onto the card directly, right above the tree, in Black Hybrid Ink.
So, there we have it! Super simple, but fun, and of course these could be personalised with colours of choice and occasion.
Lots of love and happy crafting from Erica
