Tiered Tree Card with Kaylee

Tiered Tree Card with Kaylee

Welcome again! Kaylee here and today I have put together a beautiful little tiered tree card using the stamp of the same name from Couture Creations Deck the Halls holiday collection.

Just felt like using the Teal colours (so many to choose from) for colouring the trees. I stamped and coloured 3 complete trees then fussy cut them out. Two of the trees were cut into segments to create the tiers. Layer the levels with foam tape between sections.

I I foiled a frame with a retired die – any frame would work and then this was backed with cardboard.

I trimmed the coloured cardstocks and glued them to the card front.

Next I heat embossed the sentiment and matted it to the card front.

I mounted the trees to the frame and then stroked highlights around the trees using the pigment powder mixture. (Into a water brush, add about 1cm of water and a pinch of the 2 pigment powders, shake and brush onto your work). I also added a little bit this pearly sheen to the sentiment.

Next I oiled a frame with a retired die – any frame would work. This was backed with cardboard.
