Hey stampers, Anni here.
I had this die called Tree Border Die by W Plus 9 in my stash for quite some time and was dying to use it. I think it is so cute with the stitched elements and the possibility to cut extra tree crowns to add them with dimensional adhesive.
So I went through my stash to find a stamp set that would work with this tree border. My Favorite Things' Forest Friends is just the perfect match, I think. I staretd by stamping, colouring with alcohol markers and fussy cutting (coordinating dies are available, too) the adorable bear.
I die cut the tree border from white paper and dyed it with some ink blending. I used a lighter green for the grass and a darker green for the trees. To add the trunk I used a brown pen.
For the frame I used My Favorite Things' Stitched Oval Scallop Frames. I die cut it a few times form white cardstock and stacked them up.
To finish up my card I heat embossed the sentiment in white on a stripe of brown cardstock and cut it into a banner shape.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.
