Friday Die Day

Hello friends

It's Friday Die Day!
Did you recall me saying I was knee deep in Christmas?
Well, today's I'm talking about Stylized Trees.
A lovely die set with three styles of trees, skinny, chevron and curly tip,
you also receive two types of tree bases, a candy (a sweet to us!)
and the all important star for the top!
Here are the approximate sizes:
Star: ¾”
Round Candy: ¾”
Tree Base 1: 1⅛ x 1⅛”
Tree Base 2: 1⅛ x 1½”
Tree 1 (Skinny): 1⅞ x 3¾”
Tree 2 (Chevron): 2 ⅞ x 3¾”
Tree 3 (Curly Tip): 3⅛ x 3¾”

This is how they look cut/embossed.
The curly tip die has lovely embossed snowflakes so I inked through to highlight those.

My card base, textured cream cardstock cut using 6 x 6 Matting Basics A
a snow mound cut with A2 Scalloped Borders Two,
stamped sentiment and first tree in place.
Skinny tree adhered with 3D Foam Squares.
Curly tree added.
Stars cut/embossed from gold mirror card, then 6 x 6 Matting Basics for
more gold mirror card and a black card base.
It's a fun card and pretty good for batch making!

Take care friends and wishing you all a wonderful weekend,
I'm Peterborough bound at Sir Stampalot - car is packed, 
Mum is coming along too!

Wasn't sure that I liked these dies when I saw them on C & C but your card shows what can be done with them.
Have a good weekend and a safe journey to Peterborough.

Love your card Christine! Even though each tree is very different they all work together - I wouldn't have expected that. My favourite stylised tree is the 'skinny wonky' one :) Hope you have a wonderful time in Peterborough.

Lesley Thomas said...

I like the chevron tree the best, probably because I am a traditionalist - I wish I could buy it on it's own. (or that they would make another versions, a little larger!)

Bejay Roles said...
