A Cabin In The Trees Card To Kick Off Summer!

Do you know someone who would appreciate a cabin in the trees card, made by YOU?

This cabin in the trees card makes me feel like I want to to go on vacation! Can’t you just imagine how peaceful and bright and fresh a real-life scene like this would be? And when I got my new dies from my own new collection, I was super excited to see that these new, slightly smaller full bloom trees were the PERFECT size to work with the little cabin die I already had! I LOVE it when things like that happen. So you know I had to sit right down and make this summer vacation inspired card.  To make this card I used the new Spring Tree, Rectangle Combo OPC #4, Cabin, Tabbed Mountains, Mixable Flower Stack, Tiny Leaves #2 and Tiny Flower Buds.

The Scene Base

  • Cut the A2 sized card base using Kraft cardstock.
  • Use green cardstock to cut the ground layers.
  • Use light blue cardstock to create the blue sky background layer.
  • Cut the frame using red cardstock.
  • Apply double tick tape to the bottom back lower portion of the frame and attach a ground layer.
  • Attach the second ground layer to the blue background layer.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the blue background layer.
  • Attach the framed scene base to the Kraft card base using ATG adhesive.

The  Cabin

  • Use red cardstock to cut the body of the cabin.
  • Use Kraft cardstock to cut the roof and a layer to fit behind the cabin window and door openings.
  • Apply double stick tape pieces to the back of the cabin to attach the Kraft layer.

  • Use a rolled up string of double stick tape to attach the roof to the cabin.
  • Apply a piece of mounting tape to the back of the cabin, tuck it in behind the ground layer and attach to the base.

The Trees, Sun and Flowers

  • Use green cardstock to cut the tree tops and brown cardstock to cut the tree trunks.
  • Place the tree tops on the molding pad and gently form the using a large round stylus.
  • Apply glossy accents to the tree trunks and attach the tree tops.
  • Tuck the trees in behind the ground layers and attach them to the card base using pieces of mounting tape.
  • Cut the sun (flower) using bright yellow cardstock and attach it to the card base using a small piece of mounting tape.
  • Cut tiny leaves using green cardstock and tiny flower buds using red cardstock.
  • Place the leaves and flowers face up on the molding pad, form the leaves using the leaf tool and the flowers using a tiny tipped stylus.
  • Attach the flowers to the leaves using glossy accents.
  • Finish the scene by tucking the leaves and flower sections behind the ground layer and attach using glossy accents.

  1. Good Day –

    I love your usage of dies. I have been collecting them for a while now.
    What I find that I am lacking is the skill to highlighting the die-cuts to give them more dimension, more of a realistic look.
    Do you offer classes or have posts that goes into creating shadows, dimension, etc? What would kind of markers, crayons or pencils do you suggest to use?
    Thank you,

  2. BEAUTIFULLY DONE, Kittie! I DID NOTICE those SWEET LITTLE TREES! It makes me think of the trees we have here, with little white flowers on them now! ANOTHER WAY to use these SWEET TREE DIES TOO, ESPECIALLY SINCE, you LOVE FLOWERS!!! SUPERBLY DONE, Kittie! ;)<3
