Tree Card

The last set of cards that I made for my grandfather (here are the links for the first and second) was using another SVG from Miss Kate Cuttables. The original image actually had one more pink layer. You can see that when I made the card, there are some spots that should have had a heart, but I figured it wasn't necessary. 

Though the image is fairly simplistic in that it's just adding one layer on top of the other, it required a lot of work in terms of gluing it together because the branches get rather thin. If I didn't have Zig glue and Tweezerbees, I don't know how I would have handled it!

I kept the rest of the design very simple by just using a piece of green patterned paper to be the grass. The sentiment is from Pink by Design's "Faith" set, which is one of my all-time favorites. 

I love how all the layers give the card dimension without my having to pop anything off the card. It's a simple card yet really pretty, in my opinion!


  1. Such a pretty card!

  2. By the way, do you have any new money making Apps you're using? I just ordered my first smartphone/iPhone (after holding on to my flip phone for 8 years and being made fun of by everyone I know lol). I have been doing Swagbucks and Receipt Hog with my iPad, but these will be a lot easier with the new phone. I'm going to check out Shopkick too. Do you have anyone you recommend following on Instagram for couponing deals? Thanks for any help!

    1. I actually haven't been doing all the things I normally do other than couponing. Just recently I started doing Swagbucks more diligently again.

      Yeah, Shopkick is the only one that I think to do when I'm out and about even if it just means checking in at Target or JCPenney to get my kicks there.

      As for Instagram, I like following the big sites there like FreeStuffFinder and FreebieShark. Since I don't do major couponing anymore at CVS because I don't get circulars, the thing I like to do is just search the hashtags on Instagram. My favorites are #targetclearance and #cvsclearance. Other than that, #couponcommunity is a good one to search too. When you find a couponer that has the stores that you have, that's a good one to follow. A lot of the ones I see have stores that I don't have.

      Sorry it's only a little bit of info, but I hope some of it is helpful!
