Oval Window Sheltering Tree Cards

I had so much fun creating my May Stamp-of-the-Month class featuring the Sheltering Tree stamp set.  This is such a lovely & versatile set!

We'll be doing the first card featured above at my class on May 14!  Class-To-Go kits are available!
Sheltering tree tri-fold - cantaloupe   
CASEd from Tina Rappe at Stampin' Studio.   

Oval Window Card Base—I started with a Crisp Cantaloupe card base and ran through the Big Shot with the Oval Collections Framelit on the card front. Next, sandwich the card front inside the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder and run through the Big Shot for the texture.

TIP: This folder is just wide enough to barely fit through the Big Shot going horizontally, so make sure it's positioned to roll through straight with enough clearance.  If it's crooked, it may crunch the edges of your folder and possibly ruin the hinge. (Ask me how I know!) If it is a little tight, trim off some of the excess folder at the bottom of the folder.

Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the Sheltering Tree sentiment in Soft Suede onto a 1/2" wide strip of Whisper White, then cut it down to fit.  The ends are fish-tailed and adhered over the oval window with Dimensionals.

Modified Tri-Fold—This card has a modified tri-fold opening.  I scored an 8" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White at the 4" mark and adhered it to the inside of the card, opening on the left-hand side.  The inside of my card is blank, but you could easily dress it up with some flowers and another sentiment from the same set.

Blooming Tree—I stamped the grass in Pear Pizzazz, then added the bare tree image on top with the Soft Suede ink.  The blossoms are stamped once with Crisp Cantaloupe ink and once with Strawberry Slush ink.  I finished the picture with a Soft Suede stamped tree swing.  So cute!

Two Cool—I tried a second version with a Soft Suede card base.
