Elizabeth Craft Designs All Season Tree

Hi Friends,

I'm here today to share a really playful card made from Elizabeth Craft Designs Products. This card was a labor of love but it was such a joy to make. I love creating scenes and this All Seasons Tree die set from designer Karen Burniston is perfect for making scenes for every season.


Step 1: Using your Stitched Rectangle die set (second largest die) cut yourself a pierced layer of Soft Finish White Card Stock.

Step 2: Use Susan's Garden PanPastels to lightly color the background in blues and greens to create this simple background. Spray with a fixative to prevent smearing.

Step 3: Die cut 1 tree base along with lots of leaves from the All Seasons Tree die set. The set comes with multiple leaves to choose from. The Oak leaf is used in this sample.

Step 4: Adhere the solid tree onto your colored background

Step 5. Using Susan's Garden tool kit and a leaf pad add a crease to each of your leaves. This adds dimension to your leaves

Step 6: Dip the stem end of the leaves into liquid glue before applying them onto the tree. It helps to use a tool to hold just the tip of the leaf down for a count of 10 seconds to allow for the glue to begin drying.

Step 7:  Die cut the CountryScapes Garden Edges - Hyacinth, green for the stem piece and multiple pinks and purples for the flower petals.

Step 8: Turn the green leaf strip over and using the smallest ball end of the stylus and press he backs of each of the flower sections to give them a little curve.

Step 8: When punching the small petals out of the die use the small ball end to push the tiny petals out with the molding pad underneath. This gives them a little cup shape as well, and more dimension when gluing them down.

Step 9: Assemble your card using a A2 card base (4.25x5.5) and a piece of designer paper to match your card front.
