Arbor Day

Time for Arbor Day and the design team at My Sheri Crafts is ready to celebrate and we are asking you to join in the fun.

This A2 card begins with an ecru base.  I love this tree.  It is a cut on the Cricut Wall Decor and More cartridge.  I wanted to add some dimention and texture to the card.  So, I embossed the green mat with a whimsy leaves folder.  I then added an addition mat of muted greens and blues.  the mates are inked in bronze.  The sentiment is a sticker.  I just think it fits well with the looks of the card.  And, because I like embellishment so much, I just had to add the little gem cluster.  

I think this next card just speaks Arbor Day!
This is also an A2 card.  It has a white base.  The papers for this card are from This & That by Lori Whitcock.  The apple tree is cut from the Cricut Freshly Picked cartridge.  I embossed the tan root bag to give it more of a burlap look.  The leaves cut of the tree is embossed with a leaves embossing folder. The tree sits on one of my favorite Spellbinders labels.  It is inked with gold.  The little sentiment tag is
 from a stamp set I found in the $1.00 bin at JoAnns.  And I finished the card with a shiny green ribbon
 and three little green gems.
