I've shown several cards using Papertrey's new set Mighty Oak, and none of them has a tree on it.
Here you go. A Mighty Oak.
At first, I simply stamped the leaves onto the tree, but the effect was a little too flat, so I stamped three leaves onto scrap paper, cut them out, and popped them up. Two of the popped leaves are cut even with the edge of the card. Unfortunately, my close-up photo doesn't include the cut leaf edges for example.
Sorry about that. The close up is rather pointless, isn't it?
Whatever. I'm battling fleas and allergies. Please feel sorry for me!
Here's another tree. It's totally flat, but by using two different colors for the leaves, it is sufficiently interesting without popping anything up. Isn't that cool? I think so.
I like the warmer colors of the second card, too. The gray and red work great for winter cards, but for fall, not as much. At least to my eyes. I could be wrong. In fact, I probably am. But that's okay. I'm used to it.
And don't forget about the Thanksgiving Crusade! Canada has already celebrated Thanksgiving, but remember that Thanksgiving is not just a day of the year but a state of mind. Your homeland need not even celebrate a formal thanksgiving for you to celebrate a personal thanksgiving! Send out those cards expressing gratitude to those who have touched you in some wonderful way...large or small.
You'll feel better for it.
I'm definitely not wrong about that.
