Simon Says Stamp | Abstract Tree Branches Birthday Card

Hello, friends! One of the stamp & die sets that really caught my eye in Simon’s latest Make Magic release is Petal Power. Oh my! This set is very simple, even basic, but it packs such a punch!

CARD DETAILS

I thought about a different way I could use the Petal Power set – why not turn the flower leaf die cuts into abstract leaves and create faux branches. I die-cut a bunch of leaves from colored cardstock, vellum, and gold mirror paper. I trimmed some in half to make two-tone leaves and used those images to build a background. It was so easy! Yet very addictive. I also die-cut several circles and added those over the leaves looking like berries.

    1. Interesting card, reminds me a little of Laura Bassen. Pretty colors, simple but elegant.

    1. Dear Yana – I love your dark background cards. Not many crafters use such a striking card front. Love your work!!
