How To Guide - Step 1

Using the plates, die cut all the Pine Cone elements from white cardstock. Set the foliage elements to one side. 

NB: If you are adding colour to your Pine Cones, do so at this stage. 

How To Guide - Step 2

There are 2 sizes of cones so sort in to 2 piles. You can lift the flaps on this element now or after the next step. Once you've made a few, you'll find your own way of assembling the Pine Cones. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Glue the die cut with the " open gaps" on top of the "flap" element, then poke them through the holes. I find a pokey tool is great for this step. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Adhere the solid element on the back and voila!! A very realistic Pine Cone. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Repeat these steps to assemble your second Pine Cone, then pop them to one side.  

How To Guide - Step 6

Trim white card to 7 1/2" x 5". 

Spray your Izink's on to your glass mat, add a touch of water then "smoosh" your card in to the ink, thus creating your background. Blast dry with your heat tool. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Swirl the Pearlywinks Pearl Mist to activate the mica and spray on to your glass mat. Use a paint brush to splatter over your background. Again, blast dry.  

How To Guide - Step 8

Ink up the foliage stamps, from Your Only Limit Is You set, with the Smoky Grey Versafine and stamp coming down from the top left corner. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Adhere the long branch die cut as seen here.  

How To Guide - Step 10

Adhere your Pine Cones in place with foam pads, then add all your foliage elements where required. 

How To Guide - Step 11

Stamp the sentiment, from the Merry & Bright Lamination set, in the Versafine, to the right of your 3D display. 

How To Guide - Step 12

Stamp a few snowflakes around your sentiment. 

How To Guide - Step 13

Adhere your artwork on to black card trimmed to 7 3/4 x 5 1/4" and then on to your pink card blank. 

How To Guide - Step 14

To complete your project, use Stickles to add a touch of festive sparkle to your 3D elements.
