- Cut desired design from Wrapped in Plaid DSP at 5-1/4″ x 2″. Use Snail Adhesive to attach to the lower area of the Shaded Spruce layer.
- Cut a length of Shaded Spruce/Gold 3/8″ Striped Ribbon. Attach over the “seam” using glue dots to hold the ends on the back of the Shaded Spruce layer.
- Use Shaded Spruce Classic Ink to stamp the greeting from the Winter Woods stamp set on Whisper White Cardstock. Cut the greeting out with the Oval Framelit and the Big Shot. Cut a scallop oval out of Shaded Spruce Cardstock with the Oval Framelit and the Big Shot. Use Snail Adhesive to attach the greeting over the Shaded Spruce oval. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach to the front of the card.
- Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the solid tree to the other side of the card front. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to attach the tree with lifted branches to the solid tree.
- Shake the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint and place it on the tips of the branches. Sprinkle with Ice Stampin’ Glitter, if you want to, heat with the heat tool. Once it has cooled, gently lift the tree branches to add dimension to the card.
