I've been seeing all of these cards lately where the die cuts are "nested" in the card. I just LOVE that look! It adds such interest to a one layer card, I think. I decided to try this with the Windy Tree Die from Taylored Expressions. It was a little tricky with this die because there are separate little leaves that are SO tiny, but I was able to make it work.
The first thing I did was die cut the tree out of the card. Instead of diecutting another tree, I used the piece that I die cut and colored it using Copic markers since I wanted the leaves to be a different color than the trunk. Once I colored the tree, I inserted it back into the die cut space. Next I carefully colored and inserted the tiny separate leaves. Once the tree was finished, I die cut "dream" from the front of the card. I die cut "dream" again from black cardstock and inserted the black one in the die cut space.
I love the way it turned out! I'm not sure how well you can see in the pictures, but in real life, it is a very neat effect to have the tree and sentiment embedded in the card. :) Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Easter!
