I nspired by the catalog concept and adding diamond dusted embossing paste for a snowy texture!
5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Night Of Navy Cardstock scored at 4 1/4
5 1/4 x 4 (2), 4 x 2 Whisper White Cardstock
4 1/4 x 3 Vellum Cardstock
Strip of Sparkle Glimmer Paper for trees
3 1/2 x 4 Whisper White for Tree
Cut 4 trees from Sparkle Glimmer Paper.
Using the edge thinlet, cut the top of both the 4 x 2 whisper white cardstock and the Vellum cardstock.
To prepare the main tree;
Ink the tree stamp in Pear Pizazz then sponge a bit of Old Olive and Garden Green onto the stamp randomly. Stamp the image.
Stamp a second tree with Pear Pizazz only.
Cut out the Pear Pizazz tree with the large tree thinlet. Cut the three toned tree with the smaller tree die.
Tie a bow through the galvanized button with the Braided linen thread.
Embossing Paste with Dazzling Diamonds:
Have a pan of water available to immediately clean tools to avoid the paste hardening.
On the 4 x 2 Whisper White cardstock that was cut with the edge, using the knife palette, add white embossing paste in waves put keep in relatively thin. Sprinkle with Dazzling Diamonds and set aside to dry.
Take the smaller stamped tree and bend out the boughs on the score lines. Lightly dab the embossing paste on each of the lifted pieces and then sprinkle with Dazzling Diamonds. Set aside to dry.
Stamp Inside of Card:
On one piece of the 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White Cardstock, stamp the inside saying in Garden Green with a couple of pine boughs.
Prep Card Base:
Stamp the bare trees in Gray Granite.
Emboss the Card Base using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.
Adhere the inside Whisper White piece to the inside of the card base.
Once the embossing paste has dried, using mini dimensionals adhere the smaller snowy tree to the larger tree.
Adhere the Whisper White card front to the Night of Navy card base.
Adhere the Vellum piece attaching where the snow covered Whisper White piece will cover.
Adhere the base of the sparkle trees over the vellum just below where the top layer will fall.
You can add some fine tip glue to the base of the tree and adhere to the vellum if desired.
Add the snowy base to the vellum piece.
Using Dimensionals add the tree to the front of the card
Using a mini-glue dot adhere the button to the left bottom.
