Trendy Trees Thank You

You are NOT going to believe this. I did not CASE this card from anyone. I didn't yesterday either! I must be slowly getting my mojo back. I didn't realize it was gone until I had taken some "mental" time off and CASEd a few cards. Nothing wrong with copying cards others make. That is how we learn and for some that is just how they stamp. As long as you give credit where credit is due it's all ok.
I LOVE the Stampin' Up! "Trendy Trees" set and don't play with it as much as I would like to. This card could use a bit more finesse to it but for now I'm just keeping it simple. I am aware that not everyone enjoys making cards with lots of layers. I LOVE layers but at times do need a break from them too!
The "thanks so much" is from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" stamp set. A set I just LOVE using. It's got pretty much all the words you need and they all fit in the Word Window punch. I didn't use that punch here, I only layered the tree.
I did use a Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the tree and the trunk. I stamped the trunk first and then the green. I used the oval punch and lined up the tree and punched it out. I used the scalloped oval punch for the layer behind it. I set the layers on top of the card stock and I could see how blah the card was. I decided to punch the corners but I didn't want to get too carried away, I wanted to keep it simple and after I punched the corners I saw that the "blah" I had before wasn't all that blah! I think I liked it better before the corners were punched! It's quick and simple to make, that's for sure!
Thank you SO much for visiting today,
