Trees in the pink

Continuing the pink theme from my last post, here's a card I made with another of my must-have sets – Trendy Trees. Sorry about the pic. I just CAN'T get the colours to come right (sigh).This very girly card was inspired by one I saw on the display boards at Convention. The base is a combination of regal rose & pink pirouette. I stamped the pink pirouette card with the funky flower from 'Good Friend' in white & pink pretty in pink ink. Then I punched a large circle window out using the round tab punch (punched twice), added a celery knot & fave greeting from 'On Your Birthday'.

The trendy tree was stamped in celery & pink, cut out & mounted on a pierced pretty in pink scallop circle & two pink pirouette circles. Then, I attached it to the inside of the card. Here's a close-up of the motif & inside. We made some lovely 'trendy Trees' make & takes at Convention, so here they are too:I loved this little set of gift cards, packaged in a cellophane bag. So quick & easy to do, but I think it would make a very cute gift.I also really liked the layout of this card, which shows off all of trees in the set. I think it would be a good masculine card too, with these colours.

Top Tip: I'd definitely recommend use a stamp-a-ma-jig with this set, to accurately line up the trunks & tree tops. To speed up the process, I've stamped all the images with my SAMJ onto a piece of vellum card, so they're always ready to go.

Hope you liked these trendy tree projects. Next time, I'll have some watercolour projects to show you from my last classes. Bye for now.
Inky wishes
