Billy Under The Apple Tree

I saw an idea for an envelope with an apple tree like this in PaperCrafts May/June 2009 Issue, that was my inspiration for this card.

WHAT I DID: My card is a regular A2 card. I used this so cute new release BILLY AND MAGGIE FALL FUN designed by Wendy Hall for CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS. I embossed all the bg parts with cuttle bug embossing folders. For the tree and trunk, I made my own templates and cut out. I glued the buttons on with dimensional glaze. Billy and his dog I stamped twice on watercolor paper, colored with Tombo markers using an aqua pen and cut out whole Billy whole dog plus Billy's hat, scarf and legs and the dog's head. I sponged all the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The rest of the papers were also sponged with vintage photo after being sponged with the same color ink first. I adhered the green ribbon that looked like ric rack to the back of the bottom panel for grass. Worked great. Billy, I cut away from his log to have him sitting at the base of the tree.

Thank you for visiting me today.
