Whimiscal Tree

Hi there everyone, it is a rainy day again and lots of places around me are underwater, but no one in any danger of harm, which gives me more time to play with my stash. I made these two cards, one for my stash and the other to put in a give box to give away, I always like to have a selection of cards I can give for a gift, and I am visiting my daughter in Queensland in a couple of weeks, so will take a box for her, even though I gave her a box of cards in with her Christmas Present, but I know she likes to use them for her friends, anyway, these two cards are on a white card base and embossed with an Mpress embossing folder "Heather Border" on one of these cards the embossing folder slipped over which left a space on the left of the page, so I cut a piece of cardstock that I had sitting on my work table and used double sided tape to stick it on, I think it looks okay, I then cut out a tree from SPellbinders Shapeabilities Die D-lights "Whimiscal Tree".  It is an intricate die and I found I had to use some baking paper and then the die and the cutting pads and then also an extra piece of card to use as a shim and roll it through my Big shot several times for it to come off the die easily.   I shaded the base of the tree with Distress ink "Vintage Photo" and the top with Distress Ink "Peeled Paint" I also shaded around the edges with "Peeled Paint"  and I used some tiny stars from my stash to decorate the tree.   Hope you all like this one, and thanks so much for visiting today, Jasann
