My Favorite Season

I made this card using a pre-made 5x7 card. I used the Elmer's Craft Bond flexible duel tip glue pen, I glued the three back ground pieces of card stock to the card. I would not recommend this glue AT ALL! It's definitely not as good as the Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive! It gives the paper a wrinkled look and it doesn't dry quickly.

Then using the Stretch Your Imagination Cart. I cut out the tree and the leaves. I used, what I like to call, Pop Dots on the tree to make it stand out a bit. I added a little dimension to the tree with a brown Sakura Gelly Roll pen. Using colored pencils, I added a little shading to some of the leaves. And using SCAL, I cut out the fence ( and the moon (not sure where I got this one), and you can't see it in the picture, but the moon has two pieces. It's cut out with the same paper though, and the flash ruined the effect that you get from looking at it in person. I used a white Sakura Gelly Roll pen to add the stars.

I really like this card, I can't wait to use it!
