The new tutorial over at Operation Write Home for a funky fold tree today looked really easy, and quick – so I gave it a go! Luckily for me it was pretty easy and quick, and I multitasked by using this weeks’ sketch 140 as well. 🙂
|Lawn Fawn Let it Snow stamp set
BG Jovial papers
brown marker for stitching; pearl gem
Tim holtz inks: antique linen, walnut stain
|This was the second card I made – like it even better! LOL 🙂|
I turned the sketch on it’s side and used a small ribbon scrap for the trunk, and a pearl gem for the tree topper. I didn’t have a gold or silver pen so I just used a dark brown marker to make some dashed lines; with the paper I think it works well rather than something flashy. I also don’t have any fancy scissors, so I just cut a circle.
Lest you think I followed any of the instructions, I also made a smaller tree than the tutorial suggested. My largest die cut was just under 4″, so I used that. I actually like it quite well, though I love the way the larger tree filled the tutorial card. I may have to dig for a protractor!
It’s hard to see, but I used the small snowflakes from the Lawn Fawn Let it Snow set to stamp on the off white BG paper. I used antique linen ink; they are faint but just add a little extra.
Thanks for looking!
