I've made two cards for today's set, In the Forest.
I had made a stage card once before, but I wasn't happy with the fact that the pieces did not automatically "pop up" when the card was opened. In researching this type of card, I discovered the trick (which is to attach tabs from the cut-out piece to the back of the card, or to another piece situated behind it). So with this information I made another one. The front of the card is a simple version -- the inside much busier. In addition to the images from In the Forest, the popped-up trees and the bushes at the front of the stage are from A Walk in the Woods.
My second card is much less involved. After stamping and mounting the flop-eared bunny, I put a piece of ribbon diagonally at the lower right. I then stamped the sentiment on a piece of vellum and cut it the same size as the ribbon.
Be sure to visit the rest of the DT members' blogs to see what they have created with this set.
