 I have made another video for those who like them.  And, like the other two cards I have added step by step directions with shots from the video.  

 

 

 

Step 1:

Find the small cut apart sheet and cut out the Farmhouse Trees piece.

Trim the piece pretty close to the image all of the way around.

Ink the edges and grunge of the top a little bit with the black ink.

Step 2:

Cut a 5.25 x 4 piece of the green tree patterned paper for the background and ink the edges.

Step 3:

Add some border stickers.  Cut a piece of the Merry Christmas border stickers about 5″ long or just a bit bitter than the width of the background piece.  Ink the edges and center the words of the stickers on the paper.

Place it down the trim the edges.

Repeat these steps for the border with the red trucks.  Place it below the Merry Christmas sticker.

Place mounting tape onto the back of the Christmas Trees piece and mount above the sticker borders.

Step 4:

Fold a piece of 5.5 x 8.5 white card stock in half to create a card base.  Ink the edges.

Step 5:

Create a “faux bow” by placing a piece of the bakers twine across the top of the green background paper.  Make it long enough to  fold over to the back and tape it in place.  I slid mine just under the Christmas Trees piece.

Cut a smaller piece of the bakers twine and tie a knot around the first piece.

Step 6:

Adhere the background piece to the card base leaving a border all the way around.
