and here is one with it completely open.
I took some dark green cardstock and cut the Kat Scrappiness Christmas Tree die
several times. I applied some Peeled paint Distress Oxide ink
on the green cut out pieces and pieced together a tree that looked more like one you would see on Safari rather than Christmas pine. I misted the pieces lightly with water and blotted right away. Here is a photo when I was piecing the tree together. It’s a nice way to stretch a christmas die and use it year-round.
To finish things off I added on some sequins from the Lucky Charm
and Spring Leaves
sequins mixes. I also added eyelashes to the giraffe and darkened the eyes with a glaze gel pen
. I think it came out pretty cute. I love this interactive design. I plan on making more cards following the same design because it was so much fun. Pre making the card base is fairly easy and with it being square you can use it vertically like I have here or horizontally like the video I linked. below is a clip of the card in action!

Blog Hop Lineup:
This Father’s Day will be particularly hard for me and my family this year. We lost our Dad in February to a traumatic accident.
My Dad was an awesome guy and the life of the party. We know that he wouldn’t want us to be sad on this day, so I decided
we would celebrate him on Father’s Day. Taniesa created some special flair for me so that I could use them to create cards for my
PL album. I have to say when I first saw them , I cried and I couldn’t believe how perfect and how special these were.
First I wanted to create a card using this My Favorite Memory of my Dad flair so I could document that memory of my Dad.
His grandchildren called him Superman, they seen him as a strong man who could get through anything, so I wanted to create
a card to honor our ” Superman” using a custom flair of a photo of my Dad.
Lastly I wanted to share a lovely gift that Taniesa sent to me for my family and me to wear on Father’s Day, how special is this ribbon and its something we could wear every Father’s Day!!
I love how special these custom flair are and how they will help us celebrate and remember my Dad on this Father’s Day.
Taniesa can create custom flair for you no matter the subject, just send her a message in The Crafty Pickle shop and let
her know what you are looking for.
