Hi! How are you today? I had some time to stamp last night so pulled out the new Vertical Greetings set to play with. I made two cards using the potted tree. This was my first card:
I really liked my color choices and how the tree turned out. I had used the “thumping” technique for the leaves. Have you tried it yet? No? Well, here is what you do – color your image with a marker – I used Pear Pizzazz as my base color, then take a second marker and tap the brush tip end randomly over the base color. I used Always Artichoke as my “thumped” color. Very easy to do – and a great look for trees and leaves! While I liked how this card turned out, I was completely happy with it, so I played with the same supplies and came up with this card:
I like this one much better. While it doesn’t show in this picture, I did cut off 1 1/4″ of the front panel. The polka-dotted Designer Paper is actually attached to the inside of the card. The strip with Thank You stamped on it is attached to the front panel.
So, what card do you prefer? Leave a comment and I’ll be happy to send you your favorite! (You’ll need to email me your address, too!)
Thanks for stopping by!

I liked the second one better, but both very cute. Thanks for sharing.
I love the first one best. The second one needs something on the left side. I recently got this vertical stamp set and love it.
I like them both but the first one is my #1 choice. I like the thumping technique…I will have to try it out. Thanks for sharing!
