Palm Tree


After making a palm tree through my cricut I thought I would buy a die so there would be slightly less wastage but didn't realise how big he was.  I think it works for this card for Less is More seaside challenge. First of all I made the base card with some blending of yellow and blue but didn't take the colour all the way across.
The palm tree was placed and I decided I needed a sentiment and used one from Simon Says Stamps Floral Bookmarking but looking now I should have placed it slightly higher in line of the palm tree at the time I was just grateful it was straight.
Once everything was stuck down I realised I need to make the palm tree look planted rather than floating so a few lines to ground it, of course the tree is hiding some that went a bit weird looking.

  18. Great card, Deb. Love the blending and how you added the lines to ground the tree. I think the placement of the sentiment is fine. It also helps to ground the tree. Great job.

  19. This is a gorgeous creation Debby. I can see what you mean about the die, it works as the main feature superbly but couldn't be used as an embellie. Lol!!!
    Have a good weekend.
