The Up in the Trees collection is just full of possibilities. Earlier I, Megan, created a mini album and double page layout with it, so this month I went in a different direction with an altered item - gift and tag, and two cards!
For this altered item I used a paper mache box that my grandmother gave my daughter for valentines day, filled with candy. I peeled as much of the valentines covering off as possible, to make the lid fit, and then covered it with the Up in the Trees papers and tied a big blue ribbon around the top.
Then I added a custom tag, tied with twine and stamped with a sentiment and some fun popsicles.
For this card, I took advantage of the die cuts, using the clouds and spiral flower. The sentiment and little green square with the tree I cut from the Free as a Bird paper. A little bit of machine stitching gives this card a finished look, but overall, it was very simple, thanks to the die cuts and cut apart sentiment.
This card has a totally different feel. I chose the paler papers to give it a more sophisticated look. Again I used the die cuts for the flowers and the scalloped trim. The extra branch was die cut from the back of the In the Trees paper.
