Three Trees Card

This fun Grateful Fall Card has three punched Fall trees.  It is pretty quick and easy to make.
Three Trees Punch Art CardSUPPLIES:
Stamps:  Sprinkles of Life  Photopolymer #
Ink:  Tangerine Tango
Card Stock:  Tangerine Tango
So Saffron
Soft Sky
Whisper White
Early Espresso
Big Shot:  Seasonal Frame Thinlits #139658
Punch:  Tree Builder #138295
Other:  Tombow Glue
Fine Tip Glue Pen
Stampin’ Dimensionals

1.  Cut your Tangerine Tango card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
2.  Cut some Whisper White card stock at 2-3/4″ x 5-1/2″.  Cut Soft Sky card stock at 2-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.  Attach to the Whisper White card stock.
3.  Stamp 3 Tree Leaves in Tangerine Tango ink on So Saffron card stock.  Punch out with the Tree Builder Punch.  Also punch out the three Tree trunks and branches from Early Espresso card stock..  Lay them on the Soft Sky card stock in the desired positions.  I just glued the two outside tree parts down.  The center tree has Dimensionals under the Leaves with the tree branches glued on to the leaves.  I glued the Trunk down, but wish I would have used Dimensionals under it.
4.  Cut your “Grateful” from So Saffron card stock.  Position the 3 Trees Panel and the Grateful.  Attach the Tree Panel first-I used Tombow Glue.  Use the Fine Tip Glue Pen to attach the Grateful.  Be careful to not squeeze out too much glue.  I have found it helpful to place the word down, then use a Kleenex to press the word down.  The Kleenex comes up easily and I don’t leave glue finger prints on the card.

Happy Fall Card Making!

Baker’s Twine of your choice  I used Silver Baker’s Twine #132976
Fast Fuse or SNAIL

1.  Cut your Watermelon Wonder card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.  (I would use either Bermuda Bay or Pool Party for the Birthday Boy.)
2.  Cut your Balloon print paper at 2″ wide.  Make sure your print is going the correct direction.  Put the bottom into the Banner Triple Punch to cut the notch off the bottom.   Wasn’t that fun and easy!  Sponge around the edges with Watermelon Wonder ink if desired.  Attach with Fast Fuse or SNAIL.
3.  Stamp the cupcake liner with Tip Top Taupe ink on Whisper White card stock.  Stamp your “Cloud/Frosting” in Watermelon Wonder ink on top of the cupcake liner on the Whisper White card stock AND on some Watermelon Wonder card stock.  Punch out the Watermelon Wonder card stock Frosting.
4.  Color the candle with the Watermelon Wonder  marker and the flame with the Delightful Dijon marker.  Remoisten and stamp so the candle only sticks above the frosting about 1/2″.  Punch out the whole cupcake with the 2-1/2″ Circle Punch.  If your candle is too tall you can use an Oval Framelit. Now sponge around the edge with Watermelon Wonder ink.
5.  Finish the cupcake by coloring the cupcake liner with the Delightful Dijon marker.  Layer on the Watermelon Wonder Frosting with Dimensionals.  Tie a Baker’s Twine bow and attach with a Glue Dot or Tombow Glue.  Put Dimensionals on the back of the Circle and position on the card front.
6.  Your card is now ready to give to the Birthday Girl or Boy.
