Having reversed the image and arranging it on the page I printed it out twice, once on ordinary printer paper and again on X-Press It card. I fussy cut the paper version down the left side and made it into a mask. I attached the mask to the card version of the image before stamping out the trees.
I have used the tree stamp 3 times to form the tree taking each one just a little higher than the previous one and lining up the trunks as best as I could. I need to make the tree taller and as it is a physical stamp rather than digital had to work out a way of doing so. Overall I think it worked quite well. I must confess that the little bush is there to hide a black splodge, I dropped the inked up tree stamp, whoops!
Once coloured in I cut the image with the die then stamped on the sentiment. I have added just a little glitter glue to some of the tree branches and on the snow at the bottom to make it look like frost.
The snowflake embellishments have been die cut from silver mirri card.
This blog will be moving over to a new site at the end of the year. At the moment I am posting on both sites. If you would still like to follow me in the new year please head on over to the new address here and click whatever you need to click to keep getting the posts. Thank you so much.
