Tree Cards... (Well, Actually, There's Only Two)


So today I'm sharing another couple of sample cards I made for Craft World's weekend using Taylored Expressions dies and stamps.

This time I've used the Shade Tree Thanks die and the Shade Tree Sentiments set for the first card.

A simple sympathy card for this one - you don't really want fancy for a sympathy card and for this one I just chopped the little bird house off the tree.

Now there was a lady on Saturday who said to her friend "isn't that a lovely card" and her pal said "eh... no"...... I glared at her.  How rude! I'm not saying that everyone has to like the card but I just think it's rude to diss someone's card when they're sitting in front of you.

What do you think? Is it that hideous? I was quite pleased with it, if I'm honest.

Another simple card. I just used a nestie to cut a circle aperture and then I matted that on blue card and added the Shade tree die.

All items available from Craft World.

Yes it's rude! If something doesn't appeal to you a simple "Mmm" will do fine. x

Susan maybe a touch of green eyed monster?
I think your cards are lovely and I hope it didn't spoil your day.
We can't all have good taste. ;)

Hugs Erika. X

I think you cards are gorgeous, I love the tree die and you have showcased it perfectly.
I agree the Erica's comment (above).

I think they're both great cards Susan - and so effective. Ignore what some miserable person said - we all know how good your cards are!

These are lovely CAS cards Susan! Classy and perfect. Some people have no taste... or manners!!!

Claire said...

OMG Susan how rude was she!!? I love this design and the colours are fab, perfect for a sympathy card. As card makers we all know that our cards are not to everyone's taste, but you don't say so to someone - I would love to see what she could have made! Hugs, Claire x
