Now for today's card:
I think the Sheltering Tree Stamp Set is one of the most versatile sets Stampin' Up! offers. You can change your tree to fit any of the seasons, and then add the sentiment that fits the occasion. For today's card I framed my winter tree using Oval Framelits, added some snow flakes to fit the season and made it a Thinking of You card so it could be used for a variety of occasions. When spring arrives I can just start adding some buds and leaves to trees, and continue to change it for the upcoming months ahead.
To make my frame I took two Oval Framelits and placed them together on my *Magnetic Platform. By cutting them out at the same time, the leftover piece that was between the framelits created my Oval. This can be done with your Square and Circle Framelits as well to create all sizes and types of frames.
In addition, I embossed my Pool Party layer with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder from the Holiday Catalog. Note - This cute snow flake embossing folder will be retiring January 3, 2016 or while supplies last.
*Magnetic Platform available on the Online Extravaganza at 40% off. The list price if $40.00 but on sale for $24.00. Sale ends today!
