Pretty Little Studio - Crab Apple

Ready for a walk in the woods? With the Pretty Little Studio Woodland Collection nature is never far! It's a beautiful mix of nature inspired elements including Monarch butterflies, woodgrain, pine trees, dandelion seeds, and gorgeous detailed die cut images that look straight from a botanical reference guide. 
Isn't the vintage die cut Crab Apple stunning? It's printed, and die cut ready to work with and coordinates beautifully with the Woodland Collection papers. The flowers are beautifully colored - so soft and delicate. To make this design even more feminine I layered a 4" Cambridge Doily under the die cut. The 4" size is perfect for A2 size cards (4.25 x 5.5").
One of my favorite items from the new Woodland Collection is the Monarch Butterflies! It's a package of die cut Monarch butterflies in different styles and an assortment of colors! You're sure to find just the right one you need to accent your project! I chose one in the same pink hue to match the papers, and pinks in the die cut crab apple.

Note flags are a great way to add a sentiment to a card. I stamped this one, but you could just as easily hand write a sentiment to personalize your projects. You can find the note cards in several of the Pretty Little Studio collections - this one is from the You & Me collection. The color matched perfectly with my Woodland Collection papers.
Do you see the striped paper on my design? That's actually a journaling card from the Wild Rose Package. I stared my card base with two different papers - the tree pattern on the top (White Oak), and the dots along the bottom. (Both patterns are in the paper packs.) I topped that with the striped journaling card, and then the doily and die cuts. I love the bit of pink stripe peeking out the top!
I'm seriously smitten with this collection - it's everything I love about the outdoors - only I get to bring it indoors!
