Flowering Celestina Tree
by Jenny Griffiths

Hello and Happy Tuesday!  

Having a good week?  Hope so!  Today I am featuring the wonderful Celestina Tree die.  This one caught my eye when I first saw the new release.  It's perfect for almost any occasion---birthday, wedding, new baby, thank you, sorry, sympanthy, congrats...you get the idea.   Today it comes to you as a Thank You card.

 This is clearly an intricate die and I can tell you it cuts beautifully---I cut it several times for this card...once from ivory paper and again in pale yellow, green and lavender.  I simply cut apart the colored flowers and adhered them randomly to the main layer.  I didn't get crazy and paper piece all the flowers as many are pretty small, so just the 7 larger ones did the trick.  


A strip of washi tape next to the folded edge helps fill out the space.  I also trimmed the card down to 41/4" x 5".  (letting you in on a little secret...I trimmed the card to this size because I accidently got my inky fingerprints at the top and had to cut that part off.  I call those "happy accidents" when you fix your mistake and save the card, liking it even more!)

To finish the card I added my favorite Mini Butterflies and lavender gemstones to add some sparkle and whimsy.  So, this card is ready to send off and I have more to make up to replenish my card stash.  

Thanks for stopping by today!



The tree shows up so nicely against the darker background.

My kinda tree filled with flowers and love how you picked out the details, who doesn't love a bit of sparkle and butterflies too thanks for sharing.
