I {heart} this tree!

This tree from the Growing in Unity set was one of my first Unity Stamp purchases and I absolutely love it! It is so versatile and pretty. I have used it for a Halloween card, masked it to use it as a branch, and today I am sharing two cards I have created with it. First is a card I whipped up last night for the SCS limited supplies challenge.
First, I stamped the edges of the tree (in red) all around my piece of red cardstock to make a nice background. Then I stamped the tree in black onto another piece of Doodlebug Kisses card stock, cut it out, and adhered red twinkle stickers. I used decorative scissors to create the edge on the silver paper. I glued all the pieces to my card base, popped the tree up on dimensionals, and stamped my sentiment at the bottom, adding a few more A*Muse twinkle stickers and two silver brads (Making Memories).

Next, I created a holiday card. I love using the edges of this tree to create flourishes or a pretty frame for a sentiment. I wanted the sentiment to stand out but still have some gold in it so I stamped it in gold first and then stamped over it in black.
Details for this card: Cardstock - Bazzill Basics Ivy, Patterned Paper - Basic Grey Boxer Collection, Prima flowers, Gold cord, Brilliance archival gold ink

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!
