See can you tell! 6" pink card

IMG_3279-crop

Plain white complete tag, adhered flat on an angle.

Deco Tree Frame Tag Card..
by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone Pam here today,  Christmas Holiday is fast approaching!  how you doing with your card making, I still need so many cards for family and friends.

IMG_3001-crop

I have used Poppystamp dies "Deco  Tree Frame die"  with "Double Stitched Tag Frames" as the focal point on this Christmas card, decided on traditional Xmas colours.

IMG_2991-crop

Use both the largest and next size down together to cut these tag shapes. Make sure you tape them together well! if they slip you`ll damage your dies.

IMG_2992-crop

Cut the "Deco Tree Frame" in green and white card.

IMG_2993-crop

Thin strong sticky tape, across  the top bar, to adhere metallic thread, I also put strong tape onto reverse of the trees, to hold the thread.

IMG_2994-crop

Next..I adhered to a white tag as shown, with  the green outer border tag.

IMG_2995-crop

Make sure to hold your thread in place with strong sticky tape.

IMG_2996-crop

Two decorated trees, topper ready for the card.

IMG_2998-crop

I have placed the topper onto the larger outer frame, ran a gold pen around the outer edge.

IMG_3000-crop

Foliage made with Poppystamp dies. "Poinsettia Mini" & "Greenery Bundle" cinnamon stick..I have splattered watered down white acrylic paint.

IMG_2999-crop

Poppystamp "Art Deco Frames and Phrases die set" for the sentiment. Birchpress designs random scattered Sequins "Not So Heavy Metal"
