Yet another simple tree card!

Sorry about the lack of posts - I tried and tried to get this picture to upload and had to give up due to lack of time. Oddly, it posted immediately this morning!

I found this card – I’d forgotten I’d made it. It’s really simply (hmmm, most of my cards are, aren’t they?) and suitable for a man. Looking at it, it’s probably the card that gave me the idea for a chocolate-themed cardmaking event. I’m going to get cracking over the summer and book some halls for more events, so watch this space.

  1. I love the corners you've created on this card. It adds so much to the card. Congrats on being an SU demo in the UK!

  2. so nice! love the corner treatment :)

  3. Chocolate themed cardmaking event? Sounds delish! CC

  4. Simple? I'd say stunning and wonderful. Makes me want some chocolate covered toffee. And I'm so stealing the chocolate cards idea.

  5. this card is so nice! i love the linen thread on the corners of your image. what a great idea!!

  6. Love this card! It looks clean and simple. I love what you did with the corners to! Beautiful!

  7. Simple cards are the best cards! And I've always loved that tree!

  8. I love this. I have this set, but am never quite sure what to do with it. Thanks for the inspiration!

  9. I love this card Helen. Really like everything about the layout - but especially the corner treatment with the twine. Corners often seem empty to me, but don't like to make then too fancy - this is perfect.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
