Family Tree

A little something for my Brother-in-law for his 50th birthday next month. I wanted to give him something to keep as well as the money for a few pints because it is a milestone birthday.

I have matt and layered my background with red and white embossed card. I embossed the white card with an Embossalicious embossing folder.

I then die cut the tree using a die from a Xcut family tree die set and attached that to my background.
Next, I printed the family names and die cut them with the heart from the set. The butterflies I have added to the background have also been cut using a die from the set. I used punches to cut the leaves and the flowers that I have added to the tree. I printed out the family name and die cut it with a die from The Works and attached that to the tree,

I die cut the grass with a Memory Box die and added tiny flowers and rabbits that I cut with a Cheery Lynn die. I added some tiny gems before putting my completed project into the frame.
