Fantasy Forest

If you would like to make this card which I have named Fantasy Forest this is how.

You will need:

Crimson Cloud Elegant Stag & Sentiments Stamp set

Crimson Cloud Guardian Angel Stamp Set

Spellbinders Shapeabilities Foliage 2

Spellbinders Grand Decorative Ovals die set

Spellbinders Grand Ovals die set

Encore Metallic Silver

Cosmic Shimmer Glue

Creative Expressions Pearl Hat Pins

Stamp & Bond
Fun Flock
Mounting Foam

Let’s get started:

Cut out the three largest of the Decorative Ovals in white card stock.

Cut out the largest Grand Ovals from white card stock and make a crease 1” from the top to attach to the front of the card. Cut 0.5 inches off the bottom to stabilise the oval so your card base won't fall over!

On your smallest Decorative Oval, stamp out the stag in Encore Metallic Silver, sprinkle with Stamp and Bond and heat. Then quickly pour over Fun Flock and leave to dry before you brush off the surplus. Do the same with the Joy & Peace sentiment from the Guardian Angel stamp set. If you don't have fun flock, glitter would work well too.

Whilst you are waiting, ink up another piece of white card stock lightly with Encore Silver Metallic pour over the Stamp and Bond heat and cover with Fun Flock and leave to dry, it only takes a few minutes to be safe.

In the meantime layer up your Decorative Ovals with mounting foam to give your card dimension. Next thread through your ribbon through the holes around the edges of the largest oval. Mine is a soft velvet as the effect of the Fun Flock also gives a velvet look. 

Now your original Fun Flock sheet should be dry and you can cut out as many of the Foliage 2 dies as you would like and lay them out. 

Once you’re happy with the lay out fix with Cosmic Shimmer Glue. Mount up your sentiment with mounting tape and add a few pearl hat pins to give a pearly fragile feel.

That’s it another Christmas card done and dusted!
