  • Card base: Whisper White Cardstock – 5 ½” x 8 ½”; score at 4 ¼” on the long side & folded in half
  • Whisper White Cardstock mat - 4” x 5 ¼”
    • On this piece, stamp the saying at the top left in Soft Suede Ink.
    • Ink up the pine tree in Shaded Spruce Ink. Take the Soft Suede Marker and color in the trunk.
    • Stamp the tree near the bottom right-hand side of the piece. Before fully reinking it, use the shadow images to add depth to the composition. Reink and stamp it again to the left and off the bottom.
  • Use the Big Shot to make a ‘sandwich’ in this order for the Big Shot Cutting Machine: Magnetic Platform, a standard cutting pad, the stamped image and the outline of the tree, and the other standard cutting pad. Run this ‘sandwich’ through the machine.


  • Place Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the mat piece - be sure to fill in near where the cut-out image was. Adhere to the card base.
  • Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to make small dots of glue in the hole where the tree was cut-out.
  • Lower the tree down inside and adhere…pressing firmly until the glue is set.
  • Stamp some of the leaves images on the inside of the card.
