Cardstock: Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Brushed Gold, Gold Glitter Paper, Vellum, Window Sheet
Inks:Old Olive, Soft Sky, Encore Gold
Stamp Set:Festival Of Trees
Punches: Tree, Confetti Stars, 1 3/4 circle, 1 1/4 scallop circle, Modern Label
Embossing Folder: On Point
Embellishments: Gold Bakers Twine, Shaker Frames, dimensionals
Framelits: Circles
Base Card is cut 4.25x11 Layer One: very Vanilla 4 x 5.25 (emboss with the on point folder and from the center top as far as your 1 3/4 punch can go; punch a circle. Using a 3x3 sheet of very vanilla and a scrap piece of cardstock to punch a scallop circle from; take your soft sky ink and create clouds with a sponge. Set aside. stamp 2 trees on your vellum and punch out. Use a strip of brushed gold 1.25 x 4.25 and punch your stars. Now tape your trees onto the 3x3 piece of cloudy very vanilla. Keep in mind the whole tree wont show just the tops. Pile the confetti stars in the middle.
Going back to the 4x5.25 embossed very vanilla on the back side tape down a 3x3 window sheet, then place the largest shaker frame around the punched circle. Peel off the sticky sheet and turn over center this piece over your Old olive Cardstock and it should perfectly circle your trees and stars.
Tie your bakers twine around the lower half. Then add a dimensional to each corner. Stamp an accent tree on Very Vanilla in Gold dry with a heat gun and punch. Using dimensionals pop it up on the front. Using your circle framelits and a 3x3 sheet of gold glitter paper and your Bigshot cut out a circle using the 2 inch circle and the next size up. I glued this in place with Tombo quick dry glue. On a scrap piece of very vanilla stamp your greeting and punch out using the modern label punch and pop up with dimensionals. Cut another 4x5.25 for the inside greeting, you can decorate the inside with the gold strip you punched the stars out of if you desire.
The front before placed over the trees.
