The two images were colored with watercolor crayons, which I scribbled on a transparency and then painted onto the images. I purposefully made the full tree brighter and more colorful than the leaves and acorn. And that tiny little punched leaf adds a bit of interest.
Timeless sets like this are precious, and I love how the circles give it a fresh, fun look!
George liked this card for his dad, so I fished around in my wood-mounted tree stamp box and found this old stamp (2003) from Rubber Monger, which a friend gave to me, to make his Father's Day card.
George loves both aspens and birch trees, and because the two are so similar, I don't mind mixing species on this card. The trees on the stamp are aspens (probably, given how they are growing together like that) and the background embossing folder is Sizzix (Tim Holtz) Birch. I really like how the two trees seem to hug each other. The fir in the background is kinda weirdly placed, though. Dead center would not be my design choice. Nevertheless, I really like this card and know George will, too.
This image was colored with Copics. Very simple and easy. And that birch embossing folder is the BOMB!
So now for my question. I fell in love with the Subtle embossing folder from StampinUp's catalog, but I only have a Cuttlebug. I suspect it won't fit. Anyone have experience with this? If it won't fit, does anyone know of a similar embossing folder that might fit in my Cuttlebug?
Thanks in advance for the help!
