The Torrance Trees and Party Trees were just waiting to be used this drizzly spring weekend -  and a thank you card seemed like a good idea.  Hello, Jean Okimoto here, hope you're enjoying your weekend, wherever you are!

Have you visited your favorite retailer lately?  The brand new May 2016 Release of Memory Box and Poppystamps clear stamps and coordinating dies began shipping this week.   I saw them at Impress...and spotted these shiny black dog brads there too.  They were just waiting to be paired with our trees.

Paint watercolor paper with Peerless Watercolors in springy shades of green and yellow.  Dry them, then cut the Party Trees and Torrance Trees treetops.  Attach doublestick tape behind the Torrance trees before removing the all of the little pieces.  Remove a few of the pieces, then brush gold glitter onto the adhesive where the pieces were removed.  Attach doublestick tape behind the Party Tree, then brush glitter onto the adhesive - it'll look like party lights.  

Attach doublestick tape behind a scrap of cardboard and cut the tree trunks.  

Stamp Kindness on white cardstock with VersaFine Spanish Moss and dry the ink.  Cut it with the 4-¾" x 3-¾" Pinpoint Rectangle Layer.  Attach the trees.  

Attach the dog brads - don't press the prongs too hard - they might leave an imprint on the front of the cardstock.  Just insert the brads, press them gently, then tape the prongs to the back of the cardstock so the dogs will obediently sit and stay.  These are good dogs!
