Jen Wear Crafts Challenge - Layers

This A6 card has lots of the tree and in the snow.

Its a design I have used for many a year and is always popular and easy to make.

Choose your card, textured preferably, and punch four tree shapes from the Leone Em punch FPC6-01. The photo left shows how to cut up the shapes. You need to remove the two tabs on the first shape, then each time cutting off one, two or three 'petals' to create the set of six pieces needed for the tree.

 Next, sand the card with the Woodware file if your card has a white or paler core, it gives a little bit of a 'distress' effect. If your textured card does not have a white core, then use a darker green ink pad and colour the tips if the points. This will give a bit of definition.

Place each shape on the moulding mat and use the character shaper tool to curl the points. It's important to hold the tool as in the photo and slide the tool from the tips of the points to the start of the solid area on each shape.

Assembly is easy, just apply a bit of PVA glue to the top of the biggest shape and stick the next one on top. Repeat with the other shapes until you have built your tree.

I've added some Stampendous shaved ice and diamond glitter glue to the finished card. The greeting comes from JGCL551 Christmas verses.
