Using the new Nature Friends dies from Sizzix, Keren Baker proves how easy it is to transform adorable woodland motifs into knockout card designs… and a real variety of them at that! The key is in how you layer up your die-cuts (3D foam pads are your best friends) to help keep your scenes interesting. And choosing a lovely colour palette of course. Shall we begin?

You will need:

Dies: Sizzix Nature Friends, circles
Stamps, Sugar Pea Designs Everyday Sentiments
Ink pads: Ranger Distress Oxide Broken China, Cracked Pistachio; black
Cardstock, various colours
Gel pens: white, gold
Marker pen, black
Spray bottle
Adhesives: 3D foam pads, glue
Die-cutting machine

Frame your motif

1. Matt light blue card onto a 12.5cm x 13cm white blank. Die cut a circular frame from grey and glue to the centre of the card. Die cut a rabbit from brown and pink, then adhere the elements together. Secure green die-cut foliage around the base of the circle.

2. Attach the rabbit using 3D foam pads, then add white gel pen dots to the rabbit and leaves. Fix a yellow butterfly top-right. Using a black marker pen, add dots for a trail. Draw white gel pen dashes around the edge of the blue panel. Finish with a stamped sentiment.

Landscape scene

Mount light blue card onto an 11.5cm x 19.5cm white blank. Fix a strip of green card along the bottom. Die cut animals from different coloured card, plus leaves and flowers. Adhere the elements together and fix to the card front, using 3D foam pads for the hedgehog and one of the rabbits. Stamp a black sentiment onto white card, then trim and glue to the greeting.
