Hi Blogland.. Well, I can come out of hiding as no one has shouted at me (yet!) about doing Christmas in my last post..So, I guess you are all up for it?!! So here goes with another offering!I cut out 4 Trees in 225gsm card stock using the Marianne Designs Creatables Tree #3 (LR0176).Each Tree was then stuck directly on top of the next one.I then embossed a piece of card stock using the Frame Embossing Folder from the Forever Friends Black & Gold range.My plan was to emboss the Tree shape into the middle of this frame. So I placed the Tree's in the middle of my Cuttlebug A plate.Added the Frame embossing on top of it,then my No Shims Mat,followed by a piece of 225g weight card stock as an extra shim as I have always done when making my own embossing,and finally my Cuttlebug C plate.Looking back I don't think that this particular "sandwich" required the shim of card stock as the holes in the Tree's are quite deep and I think it slightly over embossed! I kinda like the effect though!I then added some Crimbo Gems to "Bling" it up a bit!! and put this element to one side whilst I prepared my base card.I decided to put the tree onto a side stepper card, take a look here to see the measurements you will need to make this type of fold..From a separate piece of card stock I punched an edge using the Martha Stewart Pine Forest Edger Punch (M232304w)and cut the pieces to sizeto fit on the steps of my base card.Adding the embossed Tree to the step on the other side. Finishing the project off with a die cut sentiment..And there we go, another one done!!
Have a great weekend everyone and thanks for checking us out.
See you soon.
