Double the Fun: Tall Trees with Elizabeth

It's double the designing fun as we reveal two cards using the same Penny Black Creative Die; Tall Trees.  

The moment I laid my eyes on these Tall Trees, I immediately knew how I wanted to dress them.

Penny Black: Tall Trees 51-273, Snippets 30-283
These evergreens are brought to life with Therm-O-Web's Emerald Watercolor Deco Foil.

It is so easy to use and the results are "brilliant".

Create This Card In 5 Steps:

  1. Die cut a window from a 4 x 5 1/4-inch piece of cardstock and cover the back of the window with vellum and then attach to a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2-inch card base.
  2. Die cut Penny Black Tall Trees from white cardstock.
  3. With the Deco Foil Adhesive Pen, use quick, flicking strokes to apply the adhesive.  (This will add to the illusion of branches.)  Let dry for 30 seconds to 1 minute. 
  4. Lay the foil (colored side up) over the dried glue.  Cover with a scrap of cardstock and burnish the area with a bone folder.  Remove the scrap of cardstock and lift off the foil sheet. 
  5. Stamp "have a great day" on a small rectangular banner in Onyx Black VersaFine and attach across the tree trunks.
