Layered Narrow Pines Along a Forest Path
by Anne Thompson

I often send cards to mark the change of season.  As we've recently moved from summer into fall and those cards have been sent, I've started working on cards to mark the Winter Solstice and to celebrate the transition from fall into winter.  The snowy Layered Narrow Pines and the Forest Path work well together (and even alone) to create that wintery feel.


materials used for this card:

  • white notecard
  • brown plaid and green plaid papers from WOODSY PLAID PP1018
  • white cardstock
  • FOREST PATH 94702

to make this card

  • cover the front of a white notecard with brown plaid paper 5 1/2 X 4 1/4
  • die cut the Forest Path and the snowy layers of the pines from white cardstock
  • die cut the narrow pines from a dark green plaid paper--while I had the dies out, I also cut some trees from green cardstock from the Lush Green Collection and lots of snowy layers


  • use a glue pen to attach the snowy details to the pine trees
  • glue the Forest Path background and the path to the notecard
  • add the three Layered Narrow Pines
  • leave space in the snowy foreground to add a sentiment later


For the second card I used a blue paid for the background, snipped off the white trees from the Forest Path, and added five of the Layered Narrow Pines that I had cut from the green cardstock.


And for the third card, I used just the three Layered Narrow Pines against a soft green plaid background.


These are also good designs for cards to send to guys on your list--just change up the sentiment for any winter celebration.

I love how so many of the Memory Box dies work together.  I think the combination that I used for these cards was sort of expected.  But I've been trying out some other more unexpected combinations of dies, papers, and techniques to see what happens as I start to create more holiday cards.  It's exciting to see what works and what doesn't--maybe I'll even share some of both!  Happy Crafting!
