THREE OF A KIND--Christmas
These cards were easier to make than they look. First I made the top one with peg stamps using Versamark and gold ep on the card base in the shape of the tree.. Then I die cut the dsp and white cs using the tree die. I used the "frame" for the top card, and the tree for the card on the right. After gluing down the frame, I attached the white tree with a glue dot at the top and bottom.
Next, I cut a piece of gold metallic cs to 4 x 5 1/4" and die cut the stitched rectangle from the middle. I added the gold cs over a wood-grain embossed card front with dimensionals. Then I added the dsp tree and the smaller white tree center as shown. The woodgrain embossing adds a lot of texture.
For the card on the left, I attached the gold metallic gold frame to the front with narrow strips of foam mounting tape to keep it from "caving" and glued the dsp in the middle. Then I carefully glued the white panel onto the gold frame and attached the white tree with glue dots at the top and bottom.
