Step by Step
Roughly apply Vanilla Bean paint over kraft cardstock as shown. Allow to dry.
Take two of the black patterned Designer Die-Cuts and glue together to make a single shape. Position towards the right hand side of the page but don’t glue down yet.
Trim two 2.5cm strips of the small floral paper from the Bexley Black 6x6 pad. Repeat with some of the papers from the Lincoln Linen pack varying the widths slightly for each pattern.
Tuck the paper strips behind the Die-cut panel and arrange so they appear to be continuous strips running behind the panel.
Add a 6.4 photo on top and apply a length of the Bexley Black Daisy Chain strips along the top edge of the photo.
Use the 3”, 2.5”, and 1.5” punches to cut circles from a selection of the papers. Score each circle in half and curve either side away from you to add some shape. Layer the circles using glue along the score lines and 3D foam either side to add dimension.
Cut some wavy stems and adhere to the page as shown. Add the tree tops on top and add a button to each. Draw a dashed line down the centre of each tree top as faux stitching and a doodled border around the edge of the whole page.
Apply your title following the curve of the trees using the Me to You outline sticker letters, black Capsule collection letters and canvas alphabet stickers. Outline the canvas letters with a black gel pen to finish.
