Today they are featuring Birch Trees, Reverse Birch Trees, Alpha Clear, Symbols (dies), and Imprints 5 (links can be found at the end of this post).
I LOVE the birch tree images- I wanted to feature the difference between Birch and Reverse Birch so you can see which you prefer (or, if you are like me, you need them both!).
For this first card, I stamped the birch background and added a sentiment strip, a feather, and a butterfly. I made the feather by stamping it onto white cardstock with pink ink, cutting it out, and flipping it over. I love how it casts a pinkish shadow on the cardstock layer below it.
To make the butterfly I wrapped a pink piece of quilling paper around a die cut and glued it on. Here's a tip- only use enough glue to get it to adhere- you don't want glue puddling up around the quilling paper!!
Using the Reverse Birch, I took a more masculine approach.
Lastly, here is my card using the new alphabet set:
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you visit the other girls who are posting today!
