{Paper Smooches} Wise Up, Friend?


Kim is sharing this card on the Paper Smooches Blog today. It features the new releases Hooties, Owl Icons and Flowers dies. I also used the Trees 1 dies (as branches), as well as Sunny Side Up and Alphadots to create my own pun.


I used the die cutting technique I shared in THIS video tutorial to create the combination of branches and trunks. I simply die cut the Trees 1 dies almost to the base and then trimmed the curves of the large trunks around the "branches". Then I dry embossed both these pieces to give it a woodgrain texture.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
