Trendy Trees Thank You Card!

This is a very fun little stamp set by Stampin' Up! "Trendy Trees has several different tree shapes in it. I chose this one. Don't ask me what kind of tree it is, I don't know one tree from another other than I can tell you it's NOT a pine tree!!! It looks like one of those trees that you'll have to do a lot of raking in the fall with!!!! LOL

I saw a card similar to this on SplitCoastStamers. It's by sf9erfan. I thought it was a fun card. Simple yet elegant. She used some Hodgepodge Hardware on hers. I didn't. I opted to use the small slot punch. I also used the corner rounder on two of the corners of the image piece and the layer.

I did have to use the Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the tress and the trunks.

I stamped the tree trunks first in Close to Cocoa. Then I stamped the tree part using Certainly Celery. There's not a lot of stamping on this card but it did take a little bit of time to line up the trees. I had found center and then I marked the top lightly with a pencil so I knew where to put the tree trunk. I wanted them to be pretty close to evenly spaced as I could. I think they turned out ok. I am use to more layers and more colors on a card so this one was a bit of a challenge for me!! But I do like it.

The words are from the Stampin' Up! "Short and Sweet" set. The Trendy Trees set does come with a thank you but it read "thanks so much." I didn't want the word "thanks," I wanted a "thank you." Sometimes "thanks" is just not enough, if you know what I mean. It's hard to explain that one!! Anyway, it's what I wanted on the card and it's on the card!!!!! LOL

As with all of my photos, just click on it for a closer view.

Thanks SO much for stopping by,

I love this style of card and the attention to the little things that you did (the corners). Great job!

I really like this card Wanda. It is clean and simple but has a very elegant touch to it. I have tried rounding corners like this as well and it creates a nice touch. Beautiful!
