Hello! Tegan here today with a fun winter themed layout made with the very cool (pun intended!) Bundled Up collection. The collection’s color palette is perfect for those cold weather photos! I love the mix of white and blue and the pops of red! I also had some fun with a few of the Designer Dies that coordinate with this fabulous collection! I used the “winter”, snowflake, and Christmas tree dies… can you find them all?
I love adding my own pizzazz to die cut shapes… It could be glitter glue or embroidery floss, or both as I did here! And adding layers with foam adhesive is a must! Here is how I made my die cut Christmas tree embellishment!
First, I die cut one solid blue and one red patterned tree using paper from the 6×6 paper pad and the tree die from the Snowflake Tree Designer Die Set. I also die cut one brown tree trunk from the 6×6 paper pad.
Next, I lined up my die cut shapes where they were to go on my layout and trimmed off the edge that hung over my page. I then highlighted the tree branches with glitter glue. Once the glue was dry, I used embroidery floss to add 3 criss-crosses down the middle of my tree.
When I assembled my tree embellishment, I made sure to offset the blue tree so the red tree acted as a silhouette around it. And there you have a cool and easy-to-make page embellishment! Did you also notice the “winter” phrase that I die cut? Don’t be afraid to get creative and use a shape such as this snowflake to use as a dot above the letter “i”!! As you can see, there are lots of fun things you can do to add that little extra something to die cut shapes! The winter phrase is part of the Winter Skate Designer Die Set.
Thanks for joining us today! I hope I have inspired you to add some die cut embellishments to your next layout. The possibilities are endless! And be sure to check out the Bundled Up collection for your cold weather photos!
