Arbor Day Card | Distress Oxides

Happy Arbor Day!! I love trees; I’ve planted and adored many throughout my life. This year I wanted to create a card in honor of tree day! I’m using some tree dies I’ve had in  my stash for quite a while. The set is called Tree-mendous, and I love the faux stitching around them. The paper I used for the trees is Bristol Smooth card stock. This is great paper to use when you are going to ink blend with Distress Oxides or Distress Inks. It has a coating on it that allows in ink to blend really smoothly without any harsh lines.

I’m using Altenew’s Classy Stripes stencil again–I love stripes!! I applied two colors to each of the trees–first the green, then I shifted the stencil to cover the green and applied the next color. I used two different colors for each tree. I love how bright and cute they turned out.

I randomly adhered them onto a piece of kraft card stock and adhered them down with dotliner–the trunks I adhered with wet glue just because they were so thin and delicate.

There was a lot of over-hang left over. After the glue was dry, I trimmed the kraft card stock with a pair of long scissors. Long scissors are best for this–it helps cut a straight edge.

I stamped the sentiment on a piece of green card stock and cut it out with a faux-stitched banner die. I added foam squares behind it for a little bit of dimension. For a last touch I adhered some sequins across my panel to add some sparkle.
