Recreate the beauty of the forest in Corinne Bradd's lovely card
Winter Wonderland Die Set (Make It Today issue 37)
Card: brown, pale yellow, medium yellow, orange, shocking pink, cream, brown
Flat-backed gems, pink
3-D foam pads
1 Make up a brown card blank, 10.3cm x 14cm. Cut a 4cm circle from the top left of a 9.3cm x 13.8cm rectangle of yellow card. Mount onto shocking pink and trim to leave a narrow border all round. Fix a 4cm wide cream circle into the aperture to make a moon, then secure the panel to the front of the blank.
2 Cut two tree shapes each from cream, medium yellow and orange card. Trim and glue the shapes together to make a longer trunk and fix to the left side of the card so they overlap the moon. Cut a few cream stars and add to the top right.
3 Die cut a deer and squirrel from brown card and back the tiny spots with cream card cut to size. Fix the animals to the card, placing the squirrel in the tree. Cut two stockings from shocking pink and use 3-D foam pads to hang them from the tree near each animal. Add small pink flat-backed gems to each stocking and the corners of the card.
