I found the Aspen Tree dies in the July-December Mini catalog after looking through the catalog a number of times. I absolutely love the beautiful cards I can make with the dies and a variety of Stampin’ Up! DSP! I’m still making cards but I want to share some of my gorgeous Fall cards. I haven’t added greeting tags yet; I will personalize them when I send them.
You can find the Aspen Tree dies on pages 46 & 76. Here are the dies and what the cutouts look like. And, don’t forget to try using these to dry emboss on cardstock too!
This is my first set of cards. I’ve already used the left-hand one for a dear friend’s 70th birthday. The outside has a traditional birthday greeting, but I added a fun greeting on the inside from my retired “Senior Years” – “But…is it hot in here or is it just the candles on your cake?” The Halloween one is off to a friend.
As a result, I was inspired to pull out more current and retired DSPs to make cards. First up, my fall Thanksgiving cards for family. I’ll add die cut leaf embellishments with a Thanksgiving greeting on top before I put these in the mail.
I also made Thanksgiving cards using the Happy Forest Friends DSP wandering through the forest. On the first one, I cut away one of the branches so that you could see the owl sitting on another branch.
Make these quick cards in 5-10 minutes. All you need are three items – a standard A4 card base, a 4″ x 5-1/4″ DSP piece, and a coordinating 4″ x 5-1/4″ cardstock die cut with the Aspen Trees. Add die cut leaves or the bird, and a coordinating greeting tag to finish your cards.
Obviously, after seeing how easy it is to create cards with just a few supplies, this die set should become one of your “must haves” to keep forever! Happy creating! Stop by again to see some of the Spring cards I created to use for birthdays, Easter, and even sympathy cards.
Thanks for stopping by today. If you don’t have a demonstrator, I’d love to be yours. Just hop on over to my site to shop. Meanwhile, hugs to all of you. Happy Stamping!
