One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Floral Foliage

This is a cute little $5 stamp set...love the sentiment!  And the tree looks great in a lot of different colors...not your standard "green"!  I went with the smaller size card...3.5 x 5 inches...now to find some envelopes ...
My first card on the right I used spring moss to "ground" the tree...then when I was thinking about the second card and the sentiment, I thought I would use a strip of the heart border die in simply chartreuse (mainly because I already had that cut!!)  But I like it only part way across the card and then I kept the same color, berry sorbet for the sentiment...Hard to see in the picture, but I did use some Glossy Accents in the center of the bigger flowers on the tree...looks nice in real life!

  3. Love this sweet little tree. I like the heart border beneath the first one. How about trying to center it all... tree in the middle, heartborder in the middle and the sentiment centered?
