It's Monday, and that means it is time for a new featured bundle of the week.  This week I will be using a set from the new July - January Mini Catalog.  It's called Ringed with Nature Bundle.

This was one of those bundles in the new catalog that immediately caught my eye.  For the last few catalogs, I have been trying to select products that are different from sets I already have, and that is what drew me to this one.  

I have come to really like the Hybrid style of embossing folders, and this Ringed with Nature Bundle includes an embossing folder and coordinating dies that make various sized tree rings -- something I definitely did not already have.

Today's card is an Angled Tri-Fold Fancy Fold.  I've seen several of these, but the "angles" looked challenging and always made me hesitate to try it.  Then I came across a post from BlueLineStamping which provided very helpful information, so I thought I would give it a try.

I'm very happy with how my first attempt at this fancy fold turned out.

It gave me an opportunity to show off a couple of my favorite designs in the Rings of Love Designer Series Paper (DSP) Collection.  I love the colors in these birds and the coordinating "sky" design.  This DSP is one of the FREE Sale-A-Bration items you can select with a $50 order placed before August 31.  It also coordinates with the Ringed with Nature Bundle.

The little house is a two-part stamp, so it is very easy to stamp the house and the roof in different colors.  My little house is Night of Navy stamped off a couple of times before stamping on my Basic White Cardstock.

The trees and branches were made using several of the little stem/leaf dies that are included in the Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder.

For the sentiment I used the second smallest of the tree rings dies.  The sentiment was stamped in Night of Navy and then over stamped with the tree ring stamp in stamped-off Soft Suede.  The edges of the die cut were inked with sponge daubers and Soft Suede ink to make it look like bark on the edges.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the tree rings 3 times and then adhered a house over them.
