The Paper Players have a fun theme challenge this week, “Into the Woods.”

 

My first thought was of the Winter Woods Stamp Set, and the neat row of trees.

Christmas Woods

 

I remembered a card I made a while ago, with a leaf, die-cut, window for viewing the trees. Clicking on the picture will take you to the details.

These products are retired now, so I needed to improvise.

 

The large, Magnolia Memory die was used for cutting my “leaf” window. First, I glued the wood textured paper from Pressed Petals DSP to Crumb Cake Cardstock. It needed to be durable, because it would be raised on Dimensionals.

Next, I stamped the row of trees, from In The Woods, in Early Espresso Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. Then, I attached the wood textured, die-cut piece, on top with Dimensionals, and glued both to a Crumb Cake card base.

 

The Christmas tree, from the Winter Woods Stamp Set, was stamped in Garden Green Ink with Mint Macaron highlights on Thick Whisper White Cardstock. I used its die from In The Woods for cutting, and positioned it, with its right side on an Adhesive Foam Strip.

 

The sentiment, Thinking of you at Christmas, ” is from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set. I used VersaMark and White Embossing Powder for stamping on the wood textured DSP. Then, I used the smallest Stitched Shapes square die for cutting.

The last detail was the little cardinal, made with a Botanical Tags Die, and a scrap of Real Red cardstock.
