- DSP Gray with lines 4” by 5 ¼”
- DSP with 4 picture sections – Cut one 6 by 6” section. Then cut at 2” separating the large tree from the 5 smaller trees creating a 2” by 6” and a 4” by 6” piece. Trim one piece to 2” by 5 ¼” and the other piece to 4” by 5 ¼”. The larger piece will be for the bonus card.
- Because one sheet of Peaceful DSP was designed to be cut into 6” by 6” pieces, I chose to add a bonus card with this month’s tutorial. Can’t waste that DSP! Here’s what the bonus card looks like. It’s super simple to make. Just add some Evening Evergreen Ribbon around the DSP layer. Tie a knot on the left side and trim. Adhere this to the card front. Stamp sentiment on Basic White Scrap, then die cut using Seasonal Labels Dies. Die cut larger label from the same set of dies in Evening Evergreen. Layer these and glue together. Pop the sentiment label up over your ribbon. Add a 4” by 5 ¼” Basic White cardstock insert (stamped as desired).
- Now for the featured card! Glue the 4” by 5 ¼” piece of DSP onto your card front. Glue the large tree DSP onto the 2 ¼” by 5 ¼” piece of Evening Evergreen cardstock. Set this piece aside to arrange on the card front later.
- Stamp 2 pine branches in Evening Evergreen and die cut. Stamp your sentiment on the Basic White scrap and die cut with the Seasonal Labels Die Cut. Die cut a piece of the lightest coloured Silver Foil with the branch shown in the photo at the top of the tutorial. Stamp sentiment on Basic White Cardstock 4” by 5 ¼”. I used the Love and Joy sentiment as shown below.
- Adhere the pine branches and silver foil branch to the back of the sentiment label with glue dots.
- Arrange the tree panel behind the sentiment label in what position seems to show both to best advantage. Glue the tree down, then pop up the sentiment label.
