Whimsical Trees Basic Borders Card

Hey Stampers! Today I have a Whimsical Trees Basic Borders Card to share with you. There are so many fun bundles in the  July – December 2021 Mini Catalog but this one is a definite favorite! There are so many creative possibilities for the stamp set and dies. Of course, saving 10% is awfully nice as well!

The two main colors in today’s tutorial, Mint Macaron and Blushing Bride look great together, don’t you agree?

The curved die from the Basic Borders Dies makes an easy “snow” background.  I have a You Tube Tutorial that shows some versatile ways to use these dies. I always like to recommend products I use and that I feel are a good investment!
