'Tis the season to start making some Holiday cards and ornaments!! This is Lori from ScrappinMyStressAway with a window card and ornament set.
I started out with paper from this Deja Views Fair Isle Christmas paper pad I bought at Michaels last year.
I made a card with this frame from Going Places. I put two of them on my Gypsy mat at 4.25 inches. I hid the inner cut of the frame on the left. I welded them together to make the card base.
I added this tree from Sophie cartridge at 4.25 inches. I copied a second tree to weld into the center of the frame. I added the layer for the tree also at 4.25 inches.
When I make a project, I usually lay out the project on the first Layer, then copy the pieces onto separate layers to cut them out. I also usually make several of the same cards at a time. On Layer 1, I deleted the additional pieces (after I copied and moved them) and I put a second card base.
I cut them out of red paper (it is white on the back side).
On Layer 3, I put six trees. I wanted these cut out in brown so the trunk would be brown.
I put the top tree layer on Layer 2.
I cut them out of green cardstock. After seeing how much of the tree was cut away, I decided to add a middle layer. I did not want that much brown showing through.
I copied the tree layer onto a new Layer (#5) and used Hide Contour to hide the inner cuts. I found some green patterned paper from the same paper pad and cut them out.
I scored the cards with my Martha Stewart Score Board.
I layered the tree pieces together and was still not loving the tree.
I added some stickles and inked the edges. I wrapped the trunk with twine and adhered the tree to the front of the card.
I added a sentiment to the inside of the card from Close to My Heart.
I adhered the extra two trees together with some twine at the top for a loop to make an ornament.
Here is the ornament.
I put the card and ornament together as a set ~ aren't they cute?
