For the last day in November, my design is a cluster of perfect Christmas trees, cut with a Reindeer Die. I began by cutting three trees from Basic White Cardstock, and placing two of the “cut-outs” between the three trees. This tree die is unique, because it has cuts enabling you to lift the branches for a nice 3D effect.
Before gluing the white trees in place, I used the largest Deckled Rectangles Die for cutting the layer, and backed it with Boughs Of Holly Designer Paper. You can see the tree patterned paper peeking through the tree holes.
Next, I flicked the brush end of a Stampin’ Blend against the lid to make stars in the sky. Then, I glued the layer to a Soft Succulent card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.
“Merry Christmas” is from the Ringed With Nature Stamp Set, stamped in Evening Evergreen Ink. And, last but not least, the Christmas Star was cut from Silver Foil with a Reindeer Die.
I’m happy to say that Ringed With Nature and Regal Reindeer are two sets that will carry-over. YAY!
I’m sharing my design with The Paper Players.
