Designer Tip: 1) Place your card with the fold at the left. Cover with Rooted In Love gray chevrons/pink border paper. Ink the edges black. Use the Tree Frame cutting dies and your die cutting machine to cut 1 frame and 4 birds (as shown) from gray cardstock. Trim the frame to 4”x5”. Use the sponge applicator in the top of the jar of Glitter Kiss to lightly apply it on the edges of the frame, leaves, and trees. Apply the Glitter Kiss on the bird die-cuts, just thick enough to cover the cardstock. Let dry. 2) Glue the frame on pink patterned paper in the area of the decorative tree, so the tree branches show inside the bottom half of the opening as shown. Trim the outside edges even with the gray cardstock. Use the Corner Chomper to round the corners, then mat on Rooted In Love gray “marble” paper and round the corners. Ink the edges black. Foam tape centered on the card, even with the right side. 3) Glue 3 glittered birds onto the frame as shown. Tie a know in a 3” length of mauve crepe ribbon, then trim each end into a “V”. Zot™ on the left tree trunk as shown. Lightly ink Silver Tiny Words & Phrases Dazzles™ “simple joys” with StazOn® jet black ink for dark gray effect. Let dry and place o the pink paper inside the frame as shown.
