Delicate Tree

Anne here and today I'm using the new Delicate Tree die from the new release, plus eight more dies from Die-Versions.  These include the "star", which is part of the new Holiday Tag die, and the following Sweet Wordlets: the new Tis the Season and Deck the Halls, plus NoelBelieveHappyHolidays, and Merry Christmas.  You can always double click on the photo to enlarge it.

I've also got a quick tutorial on how to do the Double Flocking technique.  It's basically the same as the double glitter technique, but using flock instead.  I have to say it does feel so soft and it's quite sparkly with the added glitter that's in the flock.

Start out by adhering a piece of Super Adhesive Sheet to white cardstock and die cut the tree.  Depending on how thick the cardstock is, the die should hopefully only cut through the top protective sheet.  If it does cut all the way through, that's ok, just add some tape to the back so that all the pieces remain in place.  Begin by removing the protective sheet from the inner portion of the die (as shown on the left).

Next, cover the exposed adhesive with Glistening Emeralds Sparkle N Soft flocking from Sprinkle N Sparkle.  Burnish the flock in well with your fingertip.

Now take the remaining protective sheet off.  Cover the exposed adhesive with Irish Sparkle Sparkle N Soft and burnish well with your fingertip.  The end results should look like the photo below.  

Now for the rest of the card.  After the Christmas tree was all ready to go, I took a piece of red cardstock, applied VersaMark all over it, and heat set it with Clear embossing powder.  It transformed the dull red to something shiny and bright.  Next I die cut all the Sweet Wordlets and placed them on the tree.

The star/snowflake is actually one of the negative pieces formed when die cutting the Holiday Tag.  I applied VersaMark to the snowflake, covered it with Halo embossing powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle and heat set it.  The patterned papers have been in my stash for a long time.
