Instructions :

  1. Take your long piece of Smoky Slate Cardstock (approx. 11” x 4 ½”) and punch 9 trees with the Pine Tree Punch. Then, attach them with liquid glue to the 4” x 5 ¼” Smoky Slate Layer as pictured, for an interesting background.
  2. Fold the Smoky Slate card base at 5 ½” and add that Smoky Slate Pine Tree layer to the card front with snail adhesive.
  3. Die cut an approx. 2 ½” scalloped circle with the Silver Glimmer Paper and a regular nesting circle in the Mercury Glass Acetate using the Layering Circle Dies. Use glue dots to adhere the two circles together and liquid glue to attach to the card front.
  4. Punch 4 Pine Trees using Garden Green cardstock. Fold 3 of them lengthwise and attach them to the 4th one using liquid glue making a 3D tree. This will lay flat to mail.
  5. Attach the 3D tree to the layering circles on the card front with liquid glue.
  6. Stamp the sentiment on Whisper White cardstock and punch with the Timeless Label Punch. Also, use the Real Red Cardstock to punch another Timeless Label then attach the two punched pieces using liquid glue or snail adhesive a little offset. Then, attach the sentiment to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  7. The last step is to make a double Linen Thread bow and attach it to the top of the tree with mini glue dots and add 4 Red Rhinestones.
