Merry Monday #171

The challenge this week at Merry Monday is to make the sentiment the focus of your card.

I had fun creating this card.  I used my Cameo to design a word "tree".


I cut the word tree from white card stock, removed it from the cutting mat and colored the tree green with two shades of Copics and the trunk was colored with browns.  I then carefully removed the white card stock from the cutting mat and put some score tape across the opening on the back side before reinserting the word tree back into the white.  Of course, you know there were lots of little pieces from between the letters that had to be put back in the puzzle too.  I just left them on the cutting mat until I was ready to put them back together with the rest of the tree.  That made it much easier to figure out where all those little pieces went and it also meant that I wouldn't lose one!  I used the font Bebas Neue for the letters in the tree.  When everything was put back together, I added a few pieces of red bling to the tree.  I put some score tape on the top edges of my card base, coated it with green glitter and burnished it in well so that I could have a glittery edge to the card.  I popped the tree panel over the green glittered card base using fun foam.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by for a visit!  Hope you'll come back soon!  Your comments are greatly appreciated! Until next time...
