Trim A Tree Collection Inspiration with Melody

Hello! It’s Melody here on the blog today. This is my first time as a Guest Designer on the Spellbinders Blog and I am excited to be here. I have two projects to share with you that I created with the new Trim A Tree Collection. The collection included a Layered Christmas Tree StencilO Christmas Tree Etched Dies, and the Shining Christmas Tree Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set.

To create the background I cut a piece of dark blue cardstock to fit the card front and blended Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink on the outside edges. Then I  used the Layered Christmas Tree Stencil with Journey Modeling Paste to add the snow to the background.

Next I created the other elements to create the scene. I die cut the snow for the tree, added a little Journey Modeling Paste to the edges, and sprinkled the paste with glitter. I used the Shining Christmas Tree Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set, with Gold Glimmer Foil, to create the sentiments. The star and ornaments are die cut from Mirror Gold Cardstock.

Here’s a closer look at the finished project. I used foam tape to attach the tree to the card front to just add a little dimension.

Here is my second card I created with all the same products. On this card I used the stencil and dark green ink to add the detail to the tree. I cut a piece of white cardstock to fit the card front and the die cut an oval directly into the card front. I cut a slightly smaller oval from Mirror Gold Cardstock to use as a mat.

I used the Shining Christmas Tree Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set to add the gold foil  to the tree garland, sentiment, and star. I finished off the card with a few score lines around the edges of the card.

    Really like the score line edging on the card as it brings your eye to the pièce de résistance – that lovely tree!
