Let’s get to this lovely Fir tree die card that I made.
Here are the process of the card:
- I started off my using this amazing Paper House Productions Mistletoe cardstock to die cut the Fir tree as well as the small tree to make it like a border.
- I went ahead and also die cut another piece of acetate with the same tree die and the layer of Snowflake cardstock below it, again from Paper House Productions.
- I used a palette knife to mix Texture paste in translucent with Snowflake Tinsel embossing powder to add some glitter.
- Using the Prancing Deer stencil, I applied the paste all over the acetate and set it aside to dry.
- I took a folded notecard and place the tree die in such a way that I could still open the folded notecard. Best way to do this is to leave a little portion hanging off the sandwich plate of your die cutting machine; so when you run it through, the fold doesn’t get die cut.
- Now comes the assembly. I started off my gluing all the pieces to the folded tree cardstock, except the top border tree.
- I wanted the top border tree to pop up, so I went ahead and cut strips from acetate sheet and folded them in a ‘W’ shape. I made four of these. Adhering double sided tape on both sides, I attached all of them so that it pops up evenly.
- I went ahead and stamped the sentiment from Slimline Mod trees on the inside.
- Lastly, I wanted a star at the top of the tree as I did feel it was missing something. Using the Hero Arts Infinity star die, I die cut the star and adhered some glitter paper on it.
