Blog Blitz Featuring Boddington Tree Border


Welcome friends to another day of the fabulous Poppystamps Blog Blitz where we are showcasing the brand new holiday release! Today I am using a beautiful die called Boddington Tree Border along with a fun new sentiment die called Fancy Believe.


For this card, I used watercolor paper and Peerless watercolors. I used several different shades of blues and greens and just dabbed them along the bottom of the watercolor paper, letting it blend and run a bit. When this was dry, I cut the Boddington Tree Border out of white card stock and glued this along the very bottom edge.  I cut the Fancy Believe out twice, one with plain white card stock and one with a piece of watercolor paper I had already watercolored with the same colors I used for the bottom of the card. I glued these together and adhered it to the card above the tree border. 


I added a few sequins, then mounted my watercolor panel to an A2 side folded card base.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to leave a comment on this post for a chance to win the Boddington Tree Border die!
