Love You Lots Tunnel Card

I've been seeing a lot of tunnel cards on Pinterest and blogs lately and wanted to try one.  For this card I used the cute little hedgehogs from the Stampin' Up hostess set called Love You Lots and the tree from Thoughtful Branches.   To start I added a flap onto an A2 card so I could have 3 panels.  I used MFT Oval STAX to make windows in the top and middle panels.  Next I used my Clarity brushes and die ink to add grass and sky to each panel.  

I made 6 trees to add to the panels.  I wanted the leaves on my trees to be nice and thick so I stamped them with 4 different colors.  I used the Ranger Distress Inks: Mowed Lawn, Pine Needles, Mermaid Lagoon and Twisted Citron.  For the top panel I added two trees on the edges of the oval cut out, some clouds and the first part of my birthday sentiment.

For the second panel I did the same but included a die cut fence and some little punched flowers with gems .

For the last inside panel I centered the little hedgehogs then added the trees, clouds, flowers and sentiment.  Overall I was pleased with my first tunnel card.  I know I will be making more of these!!

Thanks for stopping by, happy stamping!
