Hello Sassy Friends! Welcome to the final step by step class for November. Today we are going to create our own Fringed Christmas Tree embellishment to fit perfectly into a 3”x4” pocket! I have used the super cute October Afternoon | Under the Tree collection, along with Kelly Purkey clear stamps and Hero Arts Ombre ink. Let’s get started!
step 1: Trim a 3”x4” piece of smooth white cardstock and stamp a brick wall pattern using the Kelly Purkey | Deck the Halls clear stamps and Hero Arts ombre ink. See instructions here.
step 2: Using the October Afternoon | Under the Tree collection, select 4 -5 different patterned papers. Keep in mind you can use the reverse side too.
step 3: Trim a piece of cardstock into a rectangle 2”x3.5”. Mark the middle on one of the short ends and trim the sides to create a tall triangle.
step 4: Layer the individual patterned paper strips one at a time, across the cardstock triangle. Trim the edges of the paper strip to match the cardstock shape.
step 5: Using a good pair of scissors, snip the lower edge of the paper strip multiple times to create a fringe. Take care not to cut across the entire length of the paper strip.
step 6: As each paper strip is completed, adhere them to the cardstock. Brush the fringe gently to create dimension and interest. Cover the entire cardstock triangle with paper fringe strips.
step 7: Adhere the completed triangle to the 3”x4” cardstock background that was prepared in step 1.
step 8: For added interest, flick the completed card with black paint.
