Fall Window

Hello crafty friends,

I love FALL, so when I received the O'Christmas Tree die in my recent design team package I knew right away I wanted to show that this tree doesn't have to be used as just a Christmas tree.

I gathered my supplies...  the O'Christmas Tree, the Bricks Background and the largest of the Stitched Nesting Squares dies and created this card:

I started by die cutting the brick background from red card stock.  Before removing the die cut from the die, I added double sided tape to the back in a few areas (see photo below).  I did this, so that some of the little "bricks" stayed in the die cut.  I backed the red brick die cut with black card stock trimmed to fit the front of an A2 size card.

Using the largest of the Stitched Nesting Squares dies, I die cut a "window" into my brick "wall".  I also used this die to die cut two black card stock squares, which I made into "shutters" for my window.

Next I die cut three trees from red, green and orange card stocks using the O'Christmas Tree die.  I arranged them on the back of my "window wall", added some foam for dimension and a blue piece of pattern paper for a sky background.

Thanks for stopping bye today, leave me some feedback or links to your projects using some of our great dies.  Don't forget to use the code mary15 for 15% off your order (not valid with sales or discounts) when shopping at Die-Versions.
