In the Woods with Foil Accents

I feel like I shouldn't even be posting this here today, since it's a glorified CASe of this card by Cindy Elam, which I think I may like more than mine, but I do love the foil effects here and wanted to share them with you.

My process started out by wanting to use some more of my Noble Peacock Foil Sheets for Christmas Designs and I thought that the Old Olive Foil would be perfect for a die cut tree. I got out my In the Woods dies and die cut the 3D Christmas Tree out of the foil. Then I started to wonder how to properly display it and I wanted to also use the bare deciduous trees as well, in either white or foil. I knew they would look best on a dark background, but also wanted a snowy feel to the background. That's when I found Cindy's wonderful card on Pinterest.

So I rearranged the design, added the fir tree and made the snowy hills and black background bigger, but I used some of the great elements that I  admired so much from Cindy's design.

  • Doesn't the Subtle 3D Embossing create a great frosty look in Silver Foil sheets when it's used as background for a winter scene? I thought so!
  • Cindy cut her silver foil into a frame, but I just cut another sheet of Basic Black to glue over top of it. Before I did, though I embossed the sentiment, from Winter Woods stamp set, in Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder.
  • I die cut 2 hills of snow from Whisper White cardstock using the edgelit that comes in the In The Woods dies. The 2 trees were die cut from the silver foil and one was tucked behind one of hills, while the other was adhered in front with glue dots.
  • The Old Olive evergreen was added with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals on the back of each of the branches that pops out. That makes them stand out more.

Don't forget about this beautiful suite of products that are still available, while supplies last!

  1. Your tree is a great pop against the silver and black background. So wish I'd got this set...
