Currently my all-time favorite die is the Shade Tree Cutting Plate from Taylored Expressions. There are just so many possibilities. Today I am uploading several cards I've made with it.
Here I die cut the Shade Tree Cutting Plate from TE Choice Snow White Cardstock. The hills were hand cut and sponged. The sentiment comes from the adorable companion stamp set, Made in the Shade, and it was embossed with white pigment ink and white embossing powder. The flowers on the tree were created with another die set – the Flowerbox Flowers & Sprigs die set.
The sky is super sparkly. I used a sheet of doublestick adhesive over a piece of Pool Party cardstock. I adhered the hills first and then the tree frame. Then I poured on a light blue loose glitter, before adding the flowers and their liquid pearl centers.
