Family Tree Birthday Card

I have used the Xcut Family Tree die set to create this card. I have made an 8x8in white easel card and matt and layered the top and bottom with pink and white embossed card. I embossed the white card with a Xcut embossing folder. I die cut the family tree and then printed the names of the recipients family and then die cut them with a small heart die. I die cut the grass with a Memory Box die and added the flowers to the grass and the tree that I die cut with a Cheery Lynn multi flower die.
I also added leaves to the tree that I cut with a punch.

I printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it with a Tonic die from a nesting set. I cut the next two sizes to mount the sentiment. I then attached this topper to the base of the card with foam pads to act as a stopper for the easel

I completed my card with flat backed pearls
