Harvest Branch Used Four Ways

I used the beautiful new Memory Box Harvest Branch Corner Frame die to make a card.  What I discovered, while making that one card, is that this die isn't just beautiful, it's uses are diverse!!   Though this die is called "Harvest" branch, by simply changing the color of the leaves, berries, or just the paper (along with the sentiments), I made cards for throughout the year...
The first one, I die cut and layered the frame with white cardstock, then added a die cut and hand cut piece of green cardstock with just the leaves.  I then die cut another frame, and cut AWAY the leaves, adhering it OVER the green piece with leaves.  I added orange accents to the berries(I have orange Tonic drops listed below, as the enamel accents wasn't available in orange).  I adhered the frame to a card panel that I had stamped the beautiful Fern and Berries image stamp in Fog...so there was a faint background for the frame.  Here's a close up...
The second one, I made a Christmas card!  I used the outer frame that is part of this die, and made the card a square card...
I darkened the color cardstock that I used for the leaves and used Berry Tonic drops for the berries(appropriately named, right?!).  I also added a gold piece and stamped the sentiment, from the beautiful new stamp set, Tidings Wreath!  Here's a close up...
The next one, I made a thinking of you card, using purple for the berries, with yet another color green for the leaves...
I adhered the frame to an embossed panel with a piece of twine tied to the bottom of the card.  I used a sentiment from the Poppy Stamps Art Deco You are Wonderful stamp set. Here's a close up...
The last one, I made an all gold card(I loved the remnant from the Christmas card, so I used it for this card)...
I decided to TURN the frame sideways(actually, you could have this frame any way and it would be wonderful!).  This card was simply made by layering the frame and then stamping the gold cardstock with versa mark inked pinstripes, and gold embossing.  I used a sentiment from the same You are Wonderful stamp set as the card before this one.  Here's a close up of the frame...
I LOVE when a die can be used for so many occasions...this was so much fun!!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
