As we all know, Lovely As a Tree stamp set has made it in the annual catalog once again. This is the longest running set Stampin' Up! has ever offered and it is certainly a favorite to almost all demonstrators. There is just something timeless and classic about the design of the set. You know, like plaid, it comes and goes; but not these trees.
We have been craving for framelit dies for those trees.... Well, Stampin' Up! kinda' answered our request and came up with the Rooted in Nature Bundle (stamps, framelit dies, and embossing dies). Here's a card I made featuring Rooted in Nature and the Window Sheet tecnhique.
Isn't that cool! It looks the tree is hold the card together but there is a piece of acetate there. And you get a sneak peek of what is inside while it adds to the look of the card. Here are some additional pictures.
The card base measures 11" x 4-1/4" and is scored in half at 5-1/2".
I then cut off a 3" x 4-1/4" piece from the card front and cut that in half to make two 1-1/2" x 4-1/4" strips.
Adhere a piece of plastic Window Sheet measuring 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" to the back of the 'flap' of card base. The window sheet now acts as your full front. Adhere one piece of the 1-1/2" x 4-1/4" strips to the bottom front and the bottom back of the window sheet. (Bottom back hides adhesive and gives extra stability to your card.)
**Did you see the detail in the leaves? This is a special feature to the Rooted in Nature Framelit which have embossing dies to add that detail. Check out this Stampin' Up! video HERE so see other ideas and how the Embossing Dies work.
