Picket Fence Studios Tree Scenery Slimline

Hey crafty friends, welcome back.  Today I have a Slimline Card created with the new Picket Fence Studios Tree Scenery Slimline Die Cutting System Insert.

I love Picket Fence Studios Slimline Die collection and when the new inserts came out this month I just had to give them a go along with a few other new goodies of course.

The Tree Scenery Slim Line Die Cutting System insert was my first choice with it’s beautiful branches and tiny little bunny dies that I just had to include.

Card Details for the Picket Fence Studios Tree Scenery Slimline:

Start by die cutting the smaller rectangle as your card front.

Use the Details of a Wing Slim Line Stencil and blend Distress Oxide Inks in Speckled Egg, Evergreen Bough and Black Soot to get a light background effect.

Next, splatter it with white and gold ink.

Cut the tree out of the slimline piece and cut it again from watercolor paper.

Using Gansai Tambi watercolors, color the tree adding teals, purples greens and pinks.

Once dry, cut the circle away from the water colored tree and glue the tree over the one on the card.

Matt the art piece i  coordinating purple before attaching to the white card base.

Embellishing the Card:

Use the circle die from the Slim line Scallop Framed Dies  – to cut the gold circle outline which is inlaid around the tree. (these new inlaid dies are fabulous for card highlights and there are hearts in this set as well).

Glue on gems from the new Reflections Gem Mix.  This is where I got the colors for the tree, therefore, they coordinating beautifully.

The Sentiment:

Gold heat emboss the sentiment from the NEW Fancy Daily Sentiments onto a piece of black cardstock and die cut it out with the coordinating die set.

Use small pieces of foam tape to attach it to the left side of the card.

I love the dramatic feel of this card, hope you do too.
