A Surprise in My Mailbox

My grandma made cards for everyone's birthdays, anniversaries, and other special events.  When she passed away, my grandpa asked me to make an assortment of cards for him to send to family and friends.  I made about thirty cards, including this one:
The papers are from Close to my Heart, as well as the stamp set.  I sanded the cardstock used for the tree trunk, making it look more rugged.  The trunk and leaves were cut using my Cricut.  The most time-consuming part of this card was gluing the leaves on to the tree.  I love the simplicity of this card and it ended up being one of my favorites of the cards I made for Grandpa.  I was pleasantly surprised to receive it in the mail when my husband and I recently celebrated our wedding anniversary.
