CottageCutz Bella Spring Tree

 Have you ever had a die touch your heart and you just know that there isn't much that needs to be done to a card because the die speaks for itself?  That is what the Bella Spring Tree die is all about.  It's feminine swirling branches are just lovely against this green and white gingham paper.
 The Bella Spring Tree was cut on dark brown cardstock and white cardstock.  Little pearls were added to the flowers on the brown tree and it was attached to Resplendent Rectangles.    The corners are 1-1/8" brown squares that were cut in half and decorated with pieces cut from the white cardstock tree to fit inside the triangle.  It carries the theme of the tree to the edges of the card so perfectly and adds another element of femininity.
Nothing says summer like Gerber Daisies.  These were created from a punch.  The centers are flocking and they were mounted on top of the Bella Leafy Branch.  Two little Martha Stewart Butterflies complete the card.  Thank you so much for stopping by today to view my project.  Happy Crafting!  See you soon.  Here are the CottageCutz dies used:

That is one beautiful die. You can say what you want but I still think there are about 41,000 details on this wonderful card. Perfect flowers, colors, and layers as usual. Very pretty and very sweet. Hugz!!!!

Chocolate, Bears and Crafts OH MY! is RIGHT!

WOW! This is gorgeous, Miss Carol! I love love love the way the gingham panels are separated by the tree panel! Wonderfully "homey" warm coloring, Carol. Like safe, smell of bread, pretty trees in the yard, apple orchard homey.

So pretty, I am pinning it to remember the layering idea. Love the daisies and white bow. The ribbon feels like a sheer white curtain billowing in the breeze. I love all the details you place in your cards, Carol. This one with the pretty white vines, and butterflies, is so pretty!

hugs,

I agree with you, this beautiful tree doesn't need much adornment. Wouldn't it look cute with little red punched apples?
