CAS Woodland Trees Christmas

I am loving my new Tim Holtz Woodland Trees Dies.  I die cut my trees using an Alcohol Ink background from my stash :-)


I let the trees be the star of my CAS design.  I dry embossed my SU "On Point" EB folder on SU Whisper White Thick CS.  My card base is also WW thick CS.

I used Loll Thompson's "Smooshing with Inks" video tutorial for my Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks background using Juniper and Pesto AI's.

I die cut both trees once with WW CS and once with the Alcohol Inks background and off set the white layers to make the trees look like they were covered with snow.  Attaching with SU Fine Tip Glue Pen.

I attached the dry EB layer to the card front,  attached the trees and the STAMPlorations  "Oh, Christmas Tree" sentiment after stamping with Archival Jet Black ink using MISTI.

I added the SSS Assorted Moonshine sequins and done !  I will probably make a couple more with this design,  since I still have another AI green toned background piece.  I do love going to my stash of backgrounds for quick and fun cards.

I got the idea for the layout from the CTS #200 Sketch

  10. Wonderful CAS card. The embossing folder you chose for the background is perfect: it echoes the triangular shape of the trees, gives the card more texture, and also gives it a fresh, modern look. A winner!
