I don’t know why exactly, but I loved this design the minute I saw it and had to grab it. This is one of my recent CUP cut files by Judith Henry called “Seasonal Tree Silhouette”
This is a super simple card… I just took the design, cut the card base and inked it up in this old letter style background using a couple of text stamps I have. I added on the green foliage layer which is cut from 65lb Recollections green card and then popped a beautiful velvet paper cut tree on top using black SEI velvet paper (see below) which you can pick up at Michaels in black or red. Velvet paper is great for these intricate cuts, the paper cuts like a dream on my Cricut Explore and I love using this. Add on the fact it just feels so dang cool and adds a little extra something something to your cards. The design does come with birds too, but I chose not to add those to this project… but you can see them on the original design.
Currently the 12×12 Velvet paper is available online at Michaels for $1 per sheet instead of $1.99.
