Memory Box Arboscello Tree

 I have a couple cards today that I made using a MB Arboscello tree die with kraft card stock. I matted them both on a SB labels eighteen die, and added black and cream colored card stock. On the first, I added scoring around the outside edges, along with a MFP sentiment with a piece cream colored satin ribbon. I dotted the leaves with some gold stickles to add a touch of interest.
For this one, I added a different color of taffeta ribbon, and embossed the black panel with a TH Damask ef. I think this die makes such a pretty card for many different occasions.

Sorry I've been missing for so long - I've had issues getting connected since last Friday. I thought the issues were resolved last night, but this morning we couldn't get online again, and then miraculously a few hours later everything worked again?! I'm sure it's not over yet, but we don't know if it's the computer or provider yet. I was originally told it was a MS security update that caused the problem, but now that's in question too. I have such a love/hate relationship with computers it isn't funny! LOL If I go poof again, you'll know I can't get a connection :)

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great Monday!

Wow! I can't wait to see all the variations you can come up with for different seasons with that die - you've got the greatest toys! Is that tree hard to pick out of the die, coz my Halloween one was a real bugger! Beautiful cards!

Hope you don't go "Poof" again Carol and get all that straightened out!

Love both of these cards. The stickles on the first one really add the shine! Both are beautiful.

Carol, I was thinking of exactly what I wanted to say in this comment and then I came on and read Lynn's comment. I was going to say the same exact words in her first sentence. So it looks like both of us are hoping you don't go Poof again. Visiting your blog is like my daily addiction. I really do like both of these cards, I just can decide which one I like better. They are both beautiful. Have a great night and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you are able to get back on line tomorrow.
