Weeping Cherry Triptych
by Jeanne Jachna

Have you seen the Poppystamps Triptych dies?  What's a triptych right?  It's a work of art that's divided into three sections.  Poppystamps has several triptych dies to choose from.  The one I'm using today is the Weeping Cherry.   I think it has a very Asian look to it - the cherry blossoms delicately hanging from the branches.   I wanted this to be very clean and simple - and let the image do all the talking.
I cut a panel of white card stock with the Weeping Cherry Triptych die and mounted it on pink card stock .  I used a Sakura Quickie Glue pen to adhere the cut out panels into the open windows.
This is a very clean and simple card - all that was left to do was add a sentiment.  I used the "thank you" from the Flower Patch clear cling stamp set.   I was really tempted to color in the open letters on the word "you"!
In the end I decided I needed something to draw the eye to the sentiment so I added a scatter of Butterfly Sprinkles in gold foil and shades of pink.
The white in contrast with the deep rose background is stunning!   this style die would make a beautiful shaker card as well.   I wanted to keep mine flat for easy mailing. 
The triptych dies are beautiful and easy to design with .  

We'd love to see what you create!!    I hope you will join us for our challenge!  The theme this month is "Fly Away With Me".  You can spin this challenge in lots of directions - butterfly wings or a trip your special place!   You can always find the latest challenge by clicking on the tab at the top of the page.
