Arboscello Tree Card

This card measures 5ins x 5ins and is made using a ivory linen effect handcut card blank.
Floral Tree Arboscello Tree Die Memory BoxThis is the card I made for my mum for Mother’s Day.
Memory Box Arboscello Tree DieMarc lent me this die from Memory Box – Arboscello Tree, Style No. 98155, a while ago and which I am afraid I kept for a little too long without using, but when thinking about Mother’s Day I knew it would be perfect for my mum.  The flowers are made using a 1cm Papermania Daisy Punch.
Arboscello Tree Die Memory BoxUsed on its own, unembellished, it would look lovely on a Christmas card with just a little sparkly micro glitter on its branches and around the bottom or with just a lone bird sitting on one of it’s branches for another occasion ….. or covered in little hearts on Valentines Day …. there are so many possibilities. I am not sure where Marc got the die from … but I am sure he will let us know when he sees this.

OMG - this card is A.W.E.S.O.M.E! What flowers did you use? Was it a die or were they packaged flowers? Your mother is going to love it!

Lovely card Helen and as you say, a very useful die for a number of occasions. Your punched flowers look so pretty.
