Karen Burniston Designer Challenge - Tree

It's time again for the Karen Burniston Designer Challenge.  This month's theme is "TREE."    As Easter is right around the corner, I chose to make an Easter card -- using the Woven Basket as well as the Tree Pop-Up.  Before I added the leaves to the tree, I sponged them with a darker green distress ink while they were still in the die.  It gives some definition to each leaf this way.   Once the leaves were glued to the tree, I mounted the entire tree onto a piece of heavyweight acetate to make sure it would stand tall and not tip over.  The acetate is long enough that it goes to the bottom of the basket.

I filled the basket with some Spring Animals as well as tulips from the Garden Charms.  The sentiment on the front is from the Easter Charms.  I mounted it on a Crosshatch Oval die cut.

One feature of the Woven Basket that I really like is that, even though it's a 3-dimensional card, it folds flat for mailing.

This die is one of my favorite Karen Burniston dies.  I hope you like it as well.
