In the Woods





I bought Becca Feeken's 3D Vignettes some time ago and just love making these multi layered cards.  I have to say they make such beautiful wedding cards!  But my sister shared with me a video that showed Memory Box's wonderful Collage dies and the first thing I thought was will it work with the sets I have from Becca's line.  Check out the video below- you will see Olga used the Grand Arch die for the base.  I don't have that particular die.  I have the other 2- Grand Dome and Grand Cabinet. But I am happy to say this design works in both!!







There is something about the way the card tunnels down that creates such a peaceful scene.  I have made one to use for Father's Day.   I am undecided about how to use the others .  I could use them both as Father's Day cards but might make them for birthday cards instead.  Do you see that kitty eyeing those cardinals!!


On the next card, I used Karen Burniston's little woodland animal.  I believe the trees on the front are from Marianne Designs.  I have had them for so long- I have forgotten where I got them.  I do have Waffle Flower's Arched dies but for this card I used an Oval die and the scene showed thru just fine. 


I wanted to use another color besides green so I tried out a shade of blue for the trees below.  The trees behind the blue layer are still green but more on the blue side.  


The light you see coming thru the trees are from tea lights.  I think they add another dimension to these cards.  The back of all these cards have Vellum for the last layer so that the light will shine thru easily.    Wouldn't they look great sitting on someone's shelf? 


I have not added the sentiments to the cards but will use the top half of the back of the card where it will not affect the front scene. 


To make these cards I used four of the Memory Box Collage Collection.  Now, I goofed and purchased the Woodland Glimpse die instead of the Thicket die that Olga used in her video.  But that die has more of what looks like bushes in the die.  It is the 4th one over from the left.  I really like that since most woods do have bushes.  


You can see the multi layers in the picture below.  I have added Memory Box's deer to my scenes.  I think these cards have more of a masculine feel to them.  That is quite a change from the Wedding or Birthday cards I usually make with them.  I just love them!  These cards will be for sale at the Spring  Craft Fair coming up on June 9th & 10th at the Italian Heritage Center in Portland. 


The weather here has turned fabulous - in the 80's!  Well, at least for one day!  We are headed to  sister Adrianne's  house in Massachusetts for Memorial Day!  I hope everyone has a fun weekend!
