Trim the Tree

Hello Friends!

I've got a number of Creative Team projects up on the Scrap Shotz blog so click here to take a look.

I saved one to share with you here:

The tree is inked with Distress Ink in Bundled Sage and Peeled Paint, then die cut with the Concord and 9th Trim the Tree die. The patterned paper is also die cut with the same tree die and adhered to a white card stock card base. 

The Distress Ink-ed tree is further die cut with the Fa La La die also from the Trim the Tree set, setting aside the inner pieces from the letters.

Inlay the tree within the negative space of the patterned paper and then inlay the die cut words along with the green pieces from the tree.

Lastly, die cut the bows from gold and red glitter paper and adhere to the top of the tree.

Thanks for stopping by!

I stamped a coloured a bunch of these images at the same time, the set has 19 images and 3 sentiment stamps.
