BBTB2/Tree

Happy Monday to each of you.... Welcome to the Monday challenge for BBTB2.  Our hostess this week is our talented DT sister Jayne who designs for us from across the pond.  She asked us to design with a tree.  There are so many tree die cuts available on our wonderful Cricut libraries and I selected several from Simply Charmed.  What a darling little cartridge this is.  I also used the sun and the cloud from the same cartridge.  Several of the trees, the sun and cloud are pop dotted for that lift effect. everything has been embossed, and the inside of the card has a rubber stamped sentiment that says "wishing you sunshine and smiles all day long".  Sometimes I have friends who need a little smile and this is a perfect card to send out...This is an A2 sized card with the gate fold design.  I cut the base card 4-1/2x11, and I scored it at 2-3/4ths inches at each end.  Fold those to the center and you have the gate fold design.

I hope that you've taken a look at the BBTB2 blog to enjoy all of the wonderful designs our design team offers you for inspiration.  Please join in on our challenge, just follow our simple rules posted at the top of our blog here.   Remember... our challenge is now just a week long.
