Welcome to MONDAY! It’s the beginning of a new week, new challenges, various obligations. I hope yours goes well! Today’s post is a rather different & fun card using the Stitched Triangles Dies and various widths of Christmas paper scraps, along with acrylic sheets. I strongly recommend having grid paper under the acrylic sheet to keep papers straight!
First, choose your papers and cut in various widths. I chose Peaceful Prints DSP and the strips range in width from from 1/4″, 3/8″, 1/2″ and even one is 3/4″ in width. Hold the acrylic sheet in place on the grid paper with tape of some sort. Place papers as desired & hold them in place on the acrylic sheet. Adhere with Stampin’ Seal or liquid glue, depending on width of paper. Place the Stitched Triangle Die over top, move to die cutting machine & cut. Voila – perfect trees! Add a ‘trunk’ to the large tree ~ mine is in Sahara Sand 1/2″ square. You could do the same for the other trees, just make them smaller.
Now create the rest of the card… card base is Real Red. Run a panel of Evening Evergreen card stock through the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and adhere to a slightly larger Basic White panel. Add dimensionals to the back of the Basic White and adhere to the card front. Now add dimensionals to the back of trees making certain they do not show through where strips are separated. Also keep in mind the placement of the trees and if overlap, pay special attention to where the dimensionals are placed. Stamp the sentiment from Heartfelt Wishes stamp set in Evening Evergreen and fussy cut. Put dimensionals on the back and place. Add Gilded Gems to the tree tops.
For the inside… Again I used the Heartfelt Wishes stamp set, again in Evening Evergreen ink on a Basic White panel. Adhere the panel to the inside of the card – and done!
The envelope, I still had several strips so used them to cover the flap and trimmed to fit. For the front, I stamped the sentiment from Heartfelt Wishes stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink. Another for my Christmas stash! This design was inspired by another demonstrator and found on Pinterest ~ whose name I forget! My sincerest apologies… 😳 Card cuts are listed at the bottom of the post.
