This month's class will be focusing on the Sheltering Tree stamp set. This is one of my absolute favorite sets in the Occasions Mini catalog this spring. There are just so many possibilities for it- no matter what time of year.
For the spring card I focused on the colors Blushing Bride and Calypso Coral. If you look at the background of the card you will notice that I added some texture by stamping the tree leaves in two of the corners. This is a fun stamp to use on it's own to give that spotted look :)
The flowers on the tree use the leaves stamp in the lighter shade and the snowflake stamp (fun extra use!) in the darker shade to give it the flowers that pop :)
I added a sliver from the Top Note die (the rest is used in the summer card- stay tuned) and half a doily behind the main image. Also, everything on white cardstock has a little bit of brown sponged around the edges to soften them up.
And that's it! Pretty simple, and really pretty :)
