Framed Trees

A birthday card today with a few challenges in mind.  I rarely make a tall card, but it seemed the best shape for my design.

I used an very old red Sizzix die, 'Frame, Slide Mounts & Coin Holder', to die cut three red slide mount shapes.  These were attached with foam pads to the card blank to add dimension.  The black, punched trees were positioned to show through the apertures and tiny, punched leaves added to the frames.  The slide mount frames look like they're not quite straight in the photos, but the camera is playing tricks again - I've just remeasured them!  I finished off my card with tiny, black peeloff sentiments.  Everything, apart from the card blank and sentiments were snippets, so I'll be off to play in the Playground.

I am joining in the following challenges:

  6. I love the three repeated frames you have used here Liz and the punched trees are perfect to fit inside. How frustrating is it when a photo makes things look out of kilter. Hope you are having a good weekend. x

  10. Super card Liz - love those slide dies, a bit like Polaroid frames as well. The silhouette trees and single leaf on each slide works beautifully.
