After taking that picture of my Tree Stamp drawer, I figured we needed a Tree challenge for the OLW.
This card uses my new Hero Arts flourished tree. Oh how I love this stamp. The flourish stamp is from a clear Hero Arts set. The sentiment is from an upcoming Mark's Finest Paper's set. Doesn't the font really match the tree perfectly?!?!
I made this card with soft, soothing colors and feminine flourishes. It's for my friend Liz, whose mother entered hospice on Sunday. Her mother has been the center of her family for so long, and I wanted to use the tree to symbolize the eternal life that her mother has in Christ. Liz has a strong faith, but saying goodbye is so hard.
I have another card to add to this post later that uses the tree from Mark's Finest Paper's upcoming Halloween set...a card that is anything but Halloween. I added an unfortunate bit of ribbon to it and must take it off and photograph the card again. Sometimes, I go a step too far. This was one of those times.
Rules for OLW18
1. A one-layer card is defined as a single piece of cardstock folded in half.
2. Use a tree stamp (or, if you don't have a tree stamp, a branch or leaves will do). Remember to keep embellishments to a minimum.
3. Please share your creation by posting your card online and then using the InLinkz button in the sidebar of Simplicity to link to it.
4. Most important of all...HAVE FUN!
