Creating with Couture: You Are Amazing Couture Tree Card

Set your own beautiful scene with the Couture Country Life die collection! This versatile card design is a simple combination of multiple die cuts, layered and stacked with foam tape. What I love best? The tree can be used as a stark winter tree without leaves, an autumn tree with leaves cut from brown and red cardstock, or a spring/summer tree as you see here. Another tip? Use a leaf cluster as a shrub to “plant” your focal tree and create a realistic effect.

When creating the You Are Amazing Couture Tree Card, I like to cut and assemble all the elements before gluing them down. Take a quick photos o you can remember the placement.

Supplies Needed:

  • Couture Set the Scene Collection Country Life
  • Black Ink
  • Cardstock: Kraft, White, Light Green, Dark Green
  • Foam Tape
  • Precision Glue

1.) Cut, score and fold white cardstock to create a 5 x 6-1/2 inch card blank.

2.) Cut a piece of white cardstock to 5-3/4 x 4-1/4 inch, then mat on blue and green card. Glue to the card front.

3.) Die-cut the tree, the fence and two butterflies from kraft cardstock. Glue the tree to the right side of the card front. Use black ink to stamp the sentient to the left.

4.) Die-cut leaf clusters from light green and dark green cardstock and adhere with foam tape, overlapping. Cut a large leaf cluster from dark green and glue to the base of the tree.

5.) Snip the left side of the fence die-cut to shorten it, then glue to the card front.

6.) Glue the two butterflies.
