It’s time for another Merry Monday project! My card today features the In the Woods Framelits, the Feather & Frost stamp set, Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, and Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper!
To make this card, I cut my layers, then used the large tree framelit to cut out the tree from the top layer. I then adhered the green glimmer paper to the BACK of the top layer, so that the paper peeks through from underneath. You can see the full set of framelits below:
(The framelits can be purchased separately, or as part of the Winter Woods Bundle, which also includes the Winter Woods stamp set!) After cutting the tree from the top layer, I then stamped the sentiment in Merry Merlot ink, and ran the piece through the Big Shot using the Softly Falling embossing folder. I also cut a star from Gold Glimmer Paper using the Twinkle Builder punch. Once the card was assembled, I cut another tree using the smaller evergreen tree die. What’s cool about this die is that it also cuts out small curved pieces throughout the finished piece, so that when layered with the larger tree, gives depth and texture to the tree! Take a look at the pics below to see close ups of what the second tree layer adds to the finished tree:
Measurements for this card are as follows:
Thick Whisper White cardstock base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)
Merry Merlot card stock middle layer: 4 x 5-1/4 inches
Whisper White top layer: 3-7/8 x 5-1/8 inches
Green Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper: 3 x 3-1/2 inches
Gold Glimmer Paper star: 1/2 x 1/2 inch (approximate)
This card was fun to make, and I love the end result! I decided not to embellish it further, as I felt that the glimmer paper and background embossing were enough. But a few rhinestones or sequins would probably add a nice touch if you wanted to dress it up a bit more!
Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your day!
