Isn’t this Love Tree adorable? It was a freebie from Designs on Cloud 9 a couple weeks ago. I knew that I wanted to make some cards with it for the DC9 blog, but my DT sister, Mitsy beat me to it! Mine is a little different, so I decided to show you my take on it.
I had a lot of fun making this card. It’s really not a true shaped card; just the front is shaped. I created it in Silhouette design studio. First I “assembled” the Love Tree and made an offset. I welded the tree to a 2.75 x 5.5 inch rectangle, then welded that to a 4.25 x 5.5 inch rectangle. (See screenshot on the left.) The cards open from the top.
Those tiny hearts cut like a charm! I had zillions left over that, if I were very mean, I could put in the envelope as confetti to make a big mess for the recipient to clean up! 🙂 Instead, I saved a few of them and had them float off into the sky.
The pink clouds are digital paper saved on my computer. It’s called Jennifer Pebbles 2ps Pink Clouds, and I guess they were from 2 Peas at one point. Can’t seem to find it on the internet now to make a link, but I found it when I searched my computer for cloud paper and it was just perfect. I love the colors.
You may not know, but Designs on Cloud 9 is closing its doors at the end of the month. They have such cute files and everything in the store is now 60% off your purchase of $10 or more. I stocked up yesterday. The last day is February 28th, so if you want to take advantage, please hurry. You can still find Michelle’s cut files on the Silhouette Store, here.
