Today I’m sharing a die cut fall tree and window card using dies by Rubbernecker Stamps. I used the Winter Tree, Tiny Leaves, Window 4 Pane, Borders #2, Stitched Hills, Grass #2, Small Ivy and Cart Accessories #2. There is something so soothing to me about using a crisp white and light blue background with fall colors. The shimmer on the leaves really makes them pop.
The Card Base, Siding and Window
- Cut several pieces of 4.25″ x .50″ white cardstock .
- Attach the siding strips to the card base using ATG adhesive, overlapping each layer as you work your way up.
- Cut the window and drapes using white cardstock.
- Use the window as a template to draw cutting lines on the card base.
- Cut the window opening in the card base using a craft knife.
- Crimp the drapes and attach them to the opening on the inside of the card base using double stick tape.
- Attach a piece of blue cardstock to the inside opening of the card base using strips of mounting tape.
- Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the window and window box and attach to the card base.
Note: It really isn’t necessary to cut the opening on the card base but I like to see the dimension between the back side of the drapes and the front of the window. I think it makes it look much more realistic instead of the drapes being smashed against a flat card base.
The Tree, Grass Layer and Pumpkins
- Cut the tree using woodgrain cardstock, apply Antique Linen ink to the tree using the ink pad direct to cardstock technique.
- Cut the leaves using mustard, red, green and orange cardstock and attach them to the tree using glossy accents.
- Apply shimmer to the leaves using a Tonic Nuvo Shimmer pen.
- Cut the grass layer and grass sprigs using green cardstock.
- Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the grass layer and attach to the card base.
- Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the tree, tuck the trunk in behind the grass layer and attach to the card base. Attach rolled up glue dots to the back of a few key leaves to secure the tree top in place.
- Tuck grass sprigs in behind the grass layer and attach with glossy accents.
- Cut the pumpkins using orange cardstock and attach them to the card base to finish the scene.
It has been so hot here in Florida so I decided to cool things down a but by making this die cut fall tree and window card. LOL! I love all the elements of this card but my favorite thing is the crimped eyelet drapes. They add a touch of elegance to the cartoony appearance of the scene.
