Good Sunday morning. My project today is a stenciled birch tree card. I don’t do much stenciling but I thought the Rubbernecker Birch Forest die would create a wonderful background for a white scene. I used the Tree in Oval, Small Birds and Greenery to complete the scene images and framed it using the Rectangle Stitch Combo die.
Birch Tree Stenciled Background and Frame
- Place a piece of Eclipse tape on a piece of scratch cardstock and punch or die cut out a 1.50″ circle
- Place the sticky eclipse circle on the top portion of a piece of white cardstock.
- Secure the birch tree die cut using eclipse tape.
- Apply Pumice Stone ink to the cardstock using an ink blending tool.
- Work the sponge in between the cut branched to make sure you have good coverage.
- Cut 2 white snow layers using deckle scissors.
- Cut the frame using white cardstock, apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back and attach the snow layer and the stenciled layer.
- Apply double stick tape to the framed stenciled layer and attach it to the red card base.
- Attach the second snow layer to the front of the frame using double stick tape.
The Pine Trees, Birds and Branches
- Cut three sections of the trees using white cardstock.. I cut a piece of cardstock large enough to fit over the tree portion of the die so I don’t waste paper bu cutting the oval frame.
- Trims off the frame section of the trees where they were attached,
- Tuck the trees in behind the snow layers and attach to the card base using mounting tape.
- Cut several sections of the greenery in white and punch out several 1/8″ red circles.
- Apply glossy accents to the tips of the foliage and attach the red circles.
- Tuck the branches in behind the snow layer and attach with glossy accents.
- Attach one red bird in the sky area using a small piece of mounting tape.
This stenciled birch tree card is a little different but I really love how it turned out. I may be making more stenciled background cards in the future. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great day.
