The new Tree Picking stamps are simply too adorable and match perfectly with the previously released Dashin Thru The Snow images – So of course I combined these to make this slim card.
I started my stamping and coloring in the images from Tree Picking and Dashin Thru The Snow – making sure to have PLENTY of trees for the background. I also made sure to color the trees in two different shades of green for a bit of variation.
Once I had colored all of these images with my Copic markers, I cut them out with the matching dies.
I used the Slim Card Basics to cut out my card base from brown cardstock twice, making a score line on one of them to create a little flap to glue to the from panel.
I cut the stitched rectangle twice from white cardstock and then used one of the rectangles to cut two snowy hills using the hill die from Slim Card Basics.
For these white cardstock pieces, I ink blended a bit of light blue to color in the sky and give the hills a bit of depth. On the sky, I used a white gel pen to draw in a bunch of circles to act as snowflakes.
All I needed to do for the scene then was to glue all the pieces together, layering trees behind and on the hills as needed to give a sense of depth, and then added most of the cute Tree Picking images using foam squares – only one of them was glued directly to the card to give the feeling he’s behind the others.
Finally, I stamped and cut out one of the Easy Xmas Greetings sentiments and added it to the card using foam squares. I also used a gold gel pen to draw around the stitched rectangle to add a bit more of a frame to the scene.
