Taylored Expressions May Release Day: Birch Tree Border
Welcome to the Release Day celebration at Taylored Expressions - where all the brand new dies and stamps are ready for your crafting pleasure!! You can check into the Fresh Out of the Oven section at the store to see all the deals and steals :)
For today's project, I made a card using the Birch Tree Border die (which coordinates with the Birch Tree Cutting Plate) - this two dies just blow me away - they make creating a scene SOOO easy!!). I LOVE the Birch Tree Border die - there are so many different possibilities that are there with this die and I went with a very simple scene - keeping the colors more neutral - just grays and creams and whites and just a pop of red :) I used some cardstock from Bazzil that is already texture-ized to cut out the Birch Tree Border die that I then sponged with some brown ink and layered it in some snow that I tore out of some cardstock. I also used the Birch Tree Accessories for which I used to cut out a little birdie and the treehouse that I tied to a branch using some Baker's Twine:
For the inside of the card - I used awesome die of the buck stepping in some snow - the buck was die cut from from some texturized Bazzill cards using the Birch Tree Accessories - love the feeling of snowy covered fields with this die!
Here is a closer peek at the card - I added some "snow" with some liquid pearls and created a snowy skyscape using the Cloud Border Die and then added some glaze to the birds wing and the treehouse:
