Twofer Challenge #6

Hi Everyone! This time, the Twofer Challenge, which runs from the 10th -24th, is all about "trees." I couldn't find a tree stamp in my collection, at least not one that I liked, so I did a little shopping and found a really fun die set from MFT. My twofer consists of a Father's Day card, which uses the dies in the traditional manner, and the second is an Easter card, which got my thinking not only outside the box, but possibly all the way into the next room. However, both cards follow the rules of the challenge. Now, just because my cards are vastly different from each other, doesn't mean you have to follow my example. Be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team, and our lovely Guest Designers to see what they've made!

These are my two cards, photographed together:

And separately:

You must be wondering where the tree is on the second card, right?! It's there, I promise. Let me show you the dies...

Tree dies. Nice tree dies. Trees. Or eggs, or cookies, or carrots.... Now, I could have gone with something like this...

...but I didn't. You can, though. You can make two different tree cards; keeping them as trees. I saw the dies, and one of my famous pings went off. I saw an egg. For those of you who know me, you know that I have to follow my pings. So I went with it! I used the egg-shaped tree top to make Easter eggs for my bunny. They (pardon the pun) crack me up. (hahahahahahahaha) 

All the papers on all the cards are from my scrap files (yay!) The grass dies on the Father's Day card are MFT dies. The 'cherries' are also from an MFT cover plate. Uniko, SC, and AE sentiments. And the funny bunny is from Inky Antics.

So. Get busy. Pull out those tree stamps and dies. Make a couple of cards and join me and the rest of the Design Team in the gallery. You can do it! I'll see you there...And as always...
