For the Love of Family

There was a lovely family tree inspired layout on the Close To My Heart blog and I fell in love. What a beautiful gift idea for family. In preparing my version, I chose to go with bolder colors and add the touch of Poppy.

A cocoa cardstock base page with a Crystal Blue matted White Daisy cardstock piece and a Cricut circle cut in Poppy matted a top a lacy Cricut cut Cocoa cardstock piece.

A torn strip of Cocoa run through my Cuttlebug using the Close To My Heart woodgrain embossing folder, love the little slit at the top of the embossing folder so you can create longer projects like this. Here I will add a little strip with the name of the person receiving this (it is a gift --shhhhh don't tell). I finished it off with Poppy Thick Twine.

Rectangles of Cocoa hold the White Daisy matted labels for daughter, father and mother and finished with the grandparents. All stamped using For Family (C1631)

The branches and leaves are from the stamp set Tree Friend (D1677), it is cool that you can bend the clear stamps to get the different direction needed for the look of a tree.

The title was stamped using For Family.

Here is a 4 1/4" x 11" top folding White Daisy card. Fold the card from the top in half at 5 1/2", you can score first before you fold.

Place the fold line on the 2" mark on your trimmer and cut. This will leave you with the 2" x 4 1/4" panel for the top of the split panel.

Take the leftover piece, 3 1/2" x 4 1/4", and cut 2" from the 3 1/2" side.  This will leave you with a 2" x 4 1/4" for the  bottom panel.

The remaining 1 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece may be used for the sentiment piece which will attach the top and bottom panels, which is what I did. I stamped one of the flamingos from the Tickled Pink (C1651) stamp set

I cut a Black cardstock mat for it at 4 1/2" x 1 3/4".

To dress up the card, I cut panels from Calypso (X7210B) pattern paper, my rule of thumb is to cut t…
