Single Layer Magnolia Tree

                                                                Spring will come!!!!

This is basically a single layer card (except for the flowers and ribbon). The card base is Pool Party
 (4 1/4 x 11 with top fold) with Pool Party sponged on the upper 2/3 of the card for the sky. Using the Sheltering Tree stamp set (137163), stamp the tree with Sahara Sand, then stamp the leaves with Old Olive then Rose Red. Using the brush stroke stamp and Old Olive, stamp the ground cover, stamping twice with each inking. Then add spots of the grass stems. The flowers are from the punch set, Itty Bitty Accents (133787) and Whisper White. Lightly sponge them with Rose Red, then place them on the piercing mat (126199) and using the scoring stylus (125624) (or the one with your score board), press down in the center of the flower to give them dimension. Glue to the tree and add a Daffodil Delight spot of ink to the centers. The background tree is from the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set (w-128751 or c-127805). Ink it with Sahara Sand, stamping off once in a scrap piece then stamping the lighter image onto the card. (You could do the same with the same tree stamp that we used for the main image.) Stamp your sentiment with Pool Party across the top of the card. Wrap and tie ribbon across the bottom of the card. (You can leave it loose or tack it down with glue dots.)

DON'T forget that Sale-a-bration is still going on! Check out the details at my online store by clicking on the button in the right side column.

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!
